The Greenery of Natural Life
What’s a better way to introduce Greenery into your home other than by welcoming nature itself? The yellow-green hue reminds of the first days of spring when natural life starts to blossom. The best way to capture this feeling is by adding plants to your interior design. Plants have been widely embraced all over the world as essential elements of interior design and have their place in every room, including bathroom. Apart from being stylish decoration elements, plants will have a positive impact on your health, since they will cleanse your home from airborne pollutants. In addition, they will create a more enjoyable and positive ambient just like the one that Greenery stands for.
Personal Sanctuary Coloured in Greenery
‘Greenery’ should be implemented with the aim of creating a peaceful environment and a great portion of that lies in disconnecting from the world of technology. If you feel like you need a break from the hustle and bustle, creating a personal sanctuary in your home will not only look stylish, but it will help you find the inner peace. With little effort, you can easily transform any corner into your own personal nook where you can retreat from the stress of everyday life. The best way to create a comfortable and cosy zone is by using ‘Greenery’ for styling it up. It will help you design a soothing sanctuary where you can go to unwind.

Another important principle you need to have in mind when deciding on the colour scheme is, consistency. This is the golden rule of interior design that will help you avoid having a tacky look.

Another stylish solution is adding accent elements throughout your home, which is a great solution if you want to connect different design styles.
