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.

Colour Feature ~ Hunter Green

2050-10 Salamander

Hunter Green promotes harmony and creates restful rooms in the home. This deep green is associated with growth, safety, and helps to create a cozy environment. It is a natural and ideal backdrop in our homes because we as humans are so used to seeing it everywhere. Paint your bedroom in a matte hunter green, juxtaposed by crisp white accessories.

Green is at the centre of the colour spectrum and our eye requires no adjustment to it, therefore green is a colour of balance. Green has a fun sense of hope, adventure, and renewal to it, as well as self-control and compassion.

It is associated to renewal and hope, growth and rebirth. It reminds me of spring, the season when all of the plants are coming back to life with fresh growth and life after the cold winter months.

A note from Colour Expert & Interior Designer Meg Quasim

“We are all looking for some balance in our life and a deep green does just that. Open your heart to green and use it at whichever level makes you feel comfortable. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side, make yours green to begin with.”
