Popularity continues to grow around the idea of bringing the outdoors inside. Green shades are popular in achieving this, and green palettes that will be in vogue for 2020-2021 are those that reflect hope, health, compassion and harmony. Inspiration is drawn from plants, vegetables, cacti, and flowers. Green shades are both soothing and relaxing and help alleviate anxiety, depression and nervousness. Green can remind us of the natural world and incorporating this color family can make us feel more connected with nature. Now more than ever we seek sanctuary in our interior spaces, and green interiors help soothe the soul.
Guests waiting to appear on television programs often wait in a “green room” to relax. This is because green is often used in decorating for its calming effect. The color green is considered to have healing powers and is understood to be the most restful and relaxing color for the human eye. Green also helps with stability and endurance.
