7 thoughts on “COLOR TREND – DARK GREENS

  1. When I was younger (as a child and teenager) I had this thing against green. Didn’t like to wear green clothes or acessories on green. Nowadays I became wiser and green is great color, dark green, army green, light green (whatever green), but specially on clothing and decor acessories, I wouldn’t dare dark green on kitchen cabinets. Mine are acqua… is a kind of green, right?

  2. Whoo hoo my favorite cardigan is going to be on trend this winter! I however am just not that in to dark green in decor. It either feels too woodsy cabin, heavy or dated for me.

  3. We bought a hunter green leather sectional in the early 90’s and used it until the leather practically shredded. I also had a valance of the same color. I don’t think I’m ready to re explore that color yet, if ever.

  4. Green seems like more of an outdoors area color, and not so much something you’d use indoors. But I love green and wouldn’t mind having a “green room” 🙂

Thank you for visiting My Old Country House...I’d love to hear what you thinking. Let me know in the comments. And Have a great Day!
