That 70’s Colour

That 70’s Show aired from 1998 to 2006, and really captured the classic seventies kitchen ‘look’ with a nice lime green in the kitchen. Home to the Forman family and crashed by Eric’s friends, the Foreman house always had some shenanigans under its roof.

Key Lime (2031-50)

Benjamin Moore’s “Key Lime” is a similar green that pairs well with vintage wallpaper, white trim, and tequila!

Golden Girls: Get the Look

Blanche’s room with the massive banana leaf wallpaper print has remained iconic for over three decades since it started airing. Here at Painters Place we have a wide wallpaper selection with many large leafy patterns. Here are some of my favourites:

Colour Feature Sunday-Deep Green

Deep greeny teals combine the calming properties of blue with the renewal qualities of green. It is a revitalizing and rejuvenating colour that also represents open communication and clarity of thought.

Although heavy on the green side, this deep teal blends blue’s tranquil stability with green’s optimism and healing properties. Teal is the colour of restfulness, mental and spiritual balance.

Dragonfly AF-510 by Benjamin Moore, is a calming deep green/teal with understated elegance that encourages a calm and reflective mood.

Colour Feature Sunday – Dark Green

Dark green is a colour that has been known to go in and out of style over the years…but this new version of deep greens is timeless. Many people have been obsessing over Benjamin Moore’s colour 686 Crisp Romaine because it can work in traditional, transitional and modern spaces. Dark green stands for balance, nature, spring, and rebirth. It’s the symbol of prosperity, freshness, and progress.

What happens to your body in the presence of green? Your pituitary gland is stimulated. Your muscles are more relaxed. It’s also been shown to improve reading ability and creativity.

The colour green is the colour of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety.

Dark green is also commonly associated with money. Traditionally associated with finances, banking, ambition, and wall street. Green is soothing, relaxing, and youthful.
