Wondering how to use the often-intimidating color in your home? Get inspired by Nate’s close friend Katie Lee’s Hamptons home, as featured in Domino.
Go bold in one major place.
If you’re dealing with a room that’s outfitted in warm neutrals, like Katie’s elegant entryway, try a bright, preferably Kelly green piece (Katie painted this table!) to add a jolt of liveliness.
Use A (Very) Pale Green As An Alternative To White
…As you see in Katie’s living room (on the walls) and bedroom (with the bedding). Since such a light green feels both warm and cool, it’s a slam dunk neutral that also lends a relaxing, nature-inspired look.
Go All Out With Accents
At first glance, the living room above doesn’t scream “Green” but at a closer look you spy it in plenty of subtle places. A pillow, a lamp, artwork, and as an accent color in a throw. Seeing it pop up throughout the room gives it a cohesive feel, but making sure that each piece is in a different shade of the color keeps it from being overbearing.
