Green Color Palettes

Did You Know: Ancient Egyptians colored the floors of their temples green.

Green color palettes typically feature shades of green combined with black, brown, gray, purple, white, and yellow. Green’s complimentary color is red; when used with the same hue, a gray illusion can appear making the image very blurry. It is a good idea to separate the two colors so that they do not touch.

The Color Green

Currently the most popular decorating color, green symbolizes nature. It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. It is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in “green rooms” to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility. Dark green is masculine, conservative, and implies wealth. However, seamstresses often refuse to use green thread on the eve of a fashion show for fear it will bring bad luck.
