Is Green the New Color for Spring?

Green seems to be everywhere right now in the decorating world so you may find yourself wondering if this is the new color for spring this year or is this color choice simply being influenced by the arrival of St. Patrick’s Day?  If you want to keep up on the latest trends in the interior of your home without making a drastic change and falling into the here today gone tomorrow category, simply add a few accessories.

Face it, green is hot right now but an entire redo of your living room is not absolutely necessary.  Simply adding in a few accessories like a modern table lamp or a few decorative pillows is all that you really need.  This is also the perfect way to add a bit of glam to a black or neutral room.

A modern lamp like the one featured in the picture by Viko will help you keep up with the color of the moment and then when you are bored with it, you can put it in the nursery, office or store it away until next St. Patrick’s Day.  If you are not keen on green, Viko makes their hollow wood lamp in red, blue and orange as well!  You can find this modern accent at Home Decorators Collection.

    I think green is always a big spring color just because of it’s happy, earthy nature. I have seen a color “greige” thrown around with a mixture of other warm neutrals that would be perfectly accented by any shade of green. The great thing about green is that since adding a plant here or there will never go out of style, you’ll always have easily added and removable accents to match! With the risk of sounding too “look at mine and i’ll look at yours,” you may like some of the “refreshing” finds I’ve posted in my blog at I just subscribed to your feed so I look forward to discussing all sorts of things in the future. 🙂
