Green, a Majestic color

Grren in your interior
Interior complementary colors can be quite strong or even too strong. Greens are more balanced against a neutral background like white, gray or clay. One interior decorating tip is to choose a color scheme that includes the elemental colors of green, namely, yellow and blue. Or choose different shades of greens with each other. A green accent in your interior brings nature into your home. A green foulard, curtain or cushion will make other green accents more alive, if for instance, you want to accentuate a green vase or the color green in a painting.
Have a look at all the Velvet Matters cushions that contain green: http://velvetmatters.com/product-tag/green/ and look at my film “How Annyta makes a cushion.”

Or take a look at my Grand Foulard “LILY” that is based in greens.
