Green Colour Schemes

Cottage Living

Green is the colour of concentration and intellect.  A room decorated in green is very calm and restful and brings elements of nature in.  People who like green tend to be cautious and sensitive to detail.

A room that is decorated in one colour is known as a monochromatic colour scheme.  This colour scheme is the most expansive in feeling.   Monochromatic colour schemes do not have a lot of contrast as you use different values of one colour.  Contrast creates energy and makes a room feel smaller.  You can also integrate neutral colours such as white, black or gray. The use of neutrals helps your eye to notice different elements in the space.
