Spring is a time to welcome in change. Winter is over, we’re finally over the Christmas and New Year rush and we can finally begin to enjoy the year! Wouldn’t it be great to feel like this in your home throughout the year. Introducing a few shades of green into your home is a great way to fill your home with these positive emotions, all year round.
Green colour therapy
Green is a great colour choice for any room in the home, especially communal or family rooms. It is recognised worldwide as a calming and therapeutic colour (hence the term, ‘the green room’) and is often actually used by psychologists at the end of a colour therapy session to balance the mind. It will create a positive atmosphere throughout the room when used as the main colour or even a feature colour.

A great way to include green in your home is to buy some plants. They’re affordable and can bring the colour scheme into as many rooms as you desire. Plants can actually have some health benefits too as, amongst others, they help us to breathe. They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen during photosynthesis, making them a natural partner for humans. Having plants in your home will complement almost any green colour scheme, and can also help to introduce green to another colour scheme without disrupting it.
