CEDAR GREEN
CEDAR GREEN – BENJAMIN MOORE 2010 COLOR OF THE YEAR

GREEN

I wonder if all the other colors are Green with envy at how much play time quiet little Green gets…it flies under the radar but comes up everywhere. I mean everywhere.

There seem to be TWO categories of interior wall color GREENS….

THE NEUTRALS

Recently I was asked to answer this question – “WHEN ARE YOU MOST CREATIVE”…I had two answers…one was when I am sad..and that is not to say that I am creative because I am sad, but that sometimes, working my way out of a slump brings enormous creativity and second…BEING ON A BUDGET MAKES ME THE MOST CREATIVE, I mean, seriously , I initially began painting 5 years ago to get affordable art on my walls…so there. AND in this vein, using POPS OF GREEN is a very EASY way to bring a modern twist to almost any space…there is ALWAYS A MORE POPULAR GREEN…right now it is KELLY back when my house was built it was AVOCADO….GREEN is never completely gone…ever….EVER..never..ever..ever!!!

look around…what POPS of GREEN DO YOU HAVE?

  1. I’m not that much of a fan of green but after seeing this post, it captured my interest. Green could be part of the interior design of an office space since it gives you a relaxing feeling. Every time that you take a break right after spending a lot of time focusing your eyes on the screen, you could just look away from it for a few minutes and admire your office space’ design.

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!
