It's March 17 again.
While green is a colour not everyone can get away with wearing, it's a completely different story when it comes to shades used in home decorating. Traditionally, the use of green for St Patrick's Day represents not only Ireland's national colour, but also the coming of spring.
This idea of creating a seasonal blast of freshness with green is one that can be used in your home to great effect. With its various shades, green can blend easily with a slew of other hues to suit any room of the house.
Spruce up your space by incorporating green on walls, furniture or as an accent colour. An apple hue will give the kitchen a fresh and vibrant look, while the sea-foam shade, often used by day spas, will evoke a sense of calm and relaxation. Plain dining chairs can be given a splash of personality with a fresh coat of Kelly green paint which, when coupled with a bright white, give an exciting contrast to the room.
Lime green and soft pink are a great combination for kids rooms, nurseries or playrooms. Together, they present a cheery and light-hearted appeal.
Continue this refreshing feel in the home with arrangements of green chrysanthemum blooms and vibrant green gladiolus flowers.
A versatile colour that's not just for St Patrick's Day, now you'll be seeing green throughout the year.
