Designing with green can have a harmonizing effect because its a neutral color which has a balance that brings stability and safeness in your design choices. It can be refreshingly chic. But one must be careful when choosing green, it can also represent envy and jealousy, hence the expression “green with envy.” Just a slight change in shade or hue can completely change the message you are trying to convey for your room.

Expressing the natural feelings and representing the natural world of green can be tricky. More subdued greens are less vibrant but are more stable and affluent. To create an energetic space when combined with vibrant hues it can create a sophisticated environment when paired with other neutrals.
