With its yellow undertones and rich depth of color, green can also add a touch of luxury and richness and can be a welcome alternative to darker colors such as indigo and black. Looking for ways to incorporate green into your decor? Here are a few tips.

1. Use greenery, such as succulents, trees, and plants, to bring elements of greenery into your space.

2. Use wearable design elements like green pillows and throws.

3. Look for ways to introduce the color green into your home through an inspirational item such as artwork or an accent chair.
