Green is the new Neutral

Tuesday, 03 March 2015 by

Neutrals are hues that go nicely with just about every color and can be mixed and matched easily. Green is often an overlooked neutral, but if you think about it, it’s everywhere in nature! Because it’s so dominant in nature it acts as the neutral – the color that every other color has to match.

Green is the new neutral in houses now, too. From walls to floors to plants and accessories, green is becoming the next big color. Benjamin Moore announced 2015 color trends and choose Guilford Green as the color of the year. Houzz.com has a great explanation of the choice of Guilford Green being the color of the year: “Paint and stain manufacturer Benjamin Moore recently announced its color trends for 2015, including a Color of the Year for 2015: Guilford Green. The hue was chosen by a team of color experts who traveled through Europe to explore and document things of interest they discovered — from interesting textiles and artwork to, of course, paint colors. Several themes emerged, which led them to select the winning color stories and Guilford Green as the lead hue.”

That being said, let’s take a look at how great this new neutral can look in the home:
