Masculine and Green

One of the color trends for Spring/Summer 2009 has shown itself in interiors, and that is the color GREEN. The color gives off a calm earthy feel to the room. Here, I've selected a few interiors who are up with the color trend, yet also have a masculine edge to them. The masculine style of dark woods, dark leathers, and neutral tones are softened and uplifted with GREEN. It can be put as touches to the interior using home accessories such as vases, glassware, or pillows. It can be used a bit more strongly such as being the color of the sofa, or chairs in the dining room. It can be used even more strongly such as the color of the wall. Just don't overdo the color, and the application in the interior. You just want to accent the place not overwhelm it. The various colors of green have different meanings, whether you want to go more foresty with a forest green color, or subtle with an olive green or vert green, or even eye-popping with a neon green!

The point is: Accent don't Overwhelm!
