Green is known to be the colour of life, renewal, nature, and energy, and is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment. The colour green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful and relaxing colour for the human eye to view. And with this in mind, we gathered a few inspirations for both the dining and living rooms with the colour green as the main protagonist.

Green can help enhance vision, stability and endurance. Green takes up more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye and it is the dominant colour in the natural. It is a natural choice in interior design as an ideal background or backdrop because we as humans are so used to seeing it everywhere.
With the colour green’s association with renewal, growth, and hope, often green stands for both a lack of experience and need for growth. Green also stands for new growth and rebirth, common in the spring season when all of the plants are coming back to life with fresh growth and life after the cold winter months.
The colour green affects us physically and mentally in several different ways. Green is soothing, relaxing, and youthful. Green is a colour that helps alleviate anxiety, depression, and nervousness.
Green also brings with it a sense of hope, health, adventure, and renewal, as well as self-control, compassion, and harmony. The green colour is often used to indicate safety in the advertising of drugs and medical products. Green is directly related to nature and energy, so it is also commonly used to represent and promote ‘green’ products.
In different cultures, green carries different meanings. For example, green is the national colour of Ireland and is commonly associated with good luck, leprechauns, clovers, and Saint Patrick’s Day. Green also has close ties with Islam.
Too much green can cause people to become placid, lazy, slow, moody, depressed, and lethargic. Too little green can cause feelings of apathy and fear of rejection. Green gemstones are believed to help create balance, promote change or growth, increase feelings of hopefulness and optimism, and break the emotional demands of others.
Different shades, tints, and hues of green have different meanings. For example, dark green represents greed, ambition, and wealth, while yellow-green stands for sickness, jealousy, and cowardice, and the olive green represents the traditional colour of peace.
