Color Spotlights

Color Spotlight: Soothing Greens

By Lindsey |

You can't deny the power of green. Offering up reminders of nature, harmony, and healing, this soothing shade has a way of making us feel right with the world. Whether it's the bathroom, kitchen, or somewhere in between, there's nothing like a sweet green escape. That's why we've rounded up some of our favorite examples of soothing green spaces so you can get your zen on.

The beauty of this Salton Sea backsplash is how it subtly shifts color under different lighting conditions. Its soft shade gives our Picket Braid pattern the appearance of gently falling leaves:

For a bolder Picket Braid look, Designer Rebecca McAndrew blended Sea Glass and Jade Pickets for a soothing ombre effect in this kitchen:

Here's another example of Sea Glass, this time in an offset pattern. We love how versatile this color can be without ever losing its calming quality.

Rosemary lends an artisanal look to soothing green with its high variation. Take a minimalist approach like actress Mandy Moore with stacked Rosemary subway tile paired with organic touches like warm wood finishes for a truly relaxing experience.

For those who like to add a splash of whimsy to their decor, try an all-over bold pattern in soothing colors. This bathroom's green and white shower feels like a quiet escape but graphically stands out from the crowd:
