Today, allow IASPL to present our top 5 picks of a GREEN coloured home in the literal sense!
Green sections in a home usually makes the place seem more naturalistic and giving a 'GREAT OUTDOORS' vibe. Together with a small water fountain and soothing classical music; I'm sure it eliminates the stress from a hectic city life. Having green colours at home to look at might also be a good thing for our tired eyes.
The conventional way of having a green theme are about painting, adding fabrics, wall papers, furnitures etc. These days we can do up a green wall system easily. Apart from real plants, using realistic but artificial vegetation will save you time and cost in maintenance. Mix and match the right combination of plants and you will not discount on the 'GREAT OUTDOORS' feel factor.
Even a small apartment can have a mini green area. Common areas to consider;
1. Along the walkway or aisle to your rooms
2. Near the entrance to your front door;
3. Around your TV console
4. Out at your balcony
You can assess the different types of wall mounted vegetation to the different texture carpet grass according to your preference. The artificial plants are guaranteed to be a simple hook up exercise. You can even do a special painting on your wall to complement the vegetation. This adds a layering effect to your wall. With a painting beneath the vegetation, you can anytime alternate the concept of your home by removing the vegetation. This will surprise your regular visitors!
Green goes well with many colours, most of all white, yellow, light purple, oak brown and light baby blue. In terms of pairing it with lighting, this really depends on the shade of green you have. It will give a good vibe with natural sunlight ranging from colour temperature of 4800K - 5800K.
For simplicity, one can use lighting and different types of plants for contrasting purposes. Do note that uniformity in the shade of green over a large area might just make your place look too commercial.
