Frame It Up!

It doesn't take a complete do-over to give your home that new green look.

Phil Tracey at HomeGoods suggests "adding touches and hints here and there." A few green accent pieces like photo frames can go a long way. "Emerald green can certainly add drama to any room, but it is a color that needs to have complementary colors around it; it is a very co-dependent color."

Go with several hues of green for depth and interest in your new spruced-up look!

Get into the Limelight

Highlight your den with a chic green lamp. Make it a pair and carry the theme throughout your room by adding other green accent pieces.

Phil Tracey of HomeGoods believes you can add green without a complete re-design. "Adding pillows, picture frames, pottery or throws in the living room, den or bedroom is an easy and simple way to incorporate emerald green."

Toss in Some Green Accents

A few pillows might be just what your decor needs for a little zest of green. It doesn't take a lot of items to transform a room with a new accent color.

Green goes with any other color. The key to a successful transformation is matching the right hue of green to the existing colors of your room. Says Phil Tracey of HomeGoods, "Touches of emerald green can really make a room come alive. It's a bold and powerful color, but also soothing."

Create an Accent Wall

An accent wall is one of the best interior design techniques you can use to completely transform any room with very little effort and cost. You can use color to separate a space within a large room. This office was redefined by painting the wall beside the desk with Behr® Aqua Waters.

Whether you opt for a green accent wall to designate a work space, add green accent pieces or do a complete redesign, green is an easy color to work into a room décor, whether it's the kitchen, bedroom, or some other room within your home.
