– Sea-foam green and chocolate brown – creates a restful spa-like feel.  Great for the bathroom or bedroom.

– Lime green and soft pink – creates a light-hearted, playful look.  Perfect for anything from a bathroom to a child’s room.

Use it in small doses for Accent – such as in painted trim work, area rugs, pillows, accessories, or in natural florals and plants.


Go Bold and decorate an entire room in Green for a chic, timeless look.  Paint your walls green and then layer in various other shades of green throughout the room using patterns and textures on fabrics and furniture.
