Notice anything different this morning? I've changed the background of the blog to a soft green color. Why green?
Currently the most popular decorating color, green symbolizes nature. It is the easiest color on the eye and can improve vision. It is a calming, refreshing color. People waiting to appear on TV sit in "green rooms" to relax. Hospitals often use green because it relaxes patients. Brides in the Middle Ages wore green to symbolize fertility. Dark green is masculine, conservative, and implies wealth. However, seamstresses often refuse to use green thread on the eve of a fashion show for fear it will bring bad luck.
Green is also the prominent color inside my house. One of the bedrooms is a light grass green.
The living room is a sage green that changes colors during the day based on the weather.
The dining room is a dark greenish brown.
The bathroom is a dark gray with green undertones.
Eventually, every room in the house will be painted with some version of green. I find the color and all its variations to be soothing. Now, if the trees would cooperate and give us some outside green, I'll be happier. Spring is coming.
43 degrees, light fog, with sunlight streaming through the trees out back. Thunderstorms and rain again last night.
