Have you ever wondered why you feel relaxed and comfortable in some places and rather tense in others? As weird as it sounds, it may have to do with the color of the space you’re in. Color influences our emotions and perceptions (at an unconscious level) as any good marketer knows. Because advertising agencies and communication experts have been using the power of colors for a long time. Some of them have a psychological effect that leads you to buy goods or services. Similarly, the colors you use to decorate your home can change your mood or influence your emotions. This is also the case for lime green, which, depending on how it is used, can create a feeling of energy, relaxation or tranquility.
In which room should anise green be considered?
A priori, it is clear that apart from if you are thinking of a little bright and daring colors for the decoration of your interior, there is little chance that you will consider anise green. But maybe you will now think about it or change your mind on the matter? Let yourself be guided through all the rooms of the house, because there is not just one anise green, but many more or less clear or deep tones. Indeed, anise green, although unique, adapts to all rooms in your home. It’s up to you to modulate according to your desires.
In the bedroom
The bedroom of a home should – ideally – evoke a soft and serene ambience. This is why pale green would be more appropriate in a bedroom than anise green. For example, if you paint the four walls of your bedroom anise green, you may be on the verge of an overdose. The color may overwhelm you visually. This would have the effect of energizing you rather than relaxing you. But if you add light blue or paler green or just white, it will soften this energizing effect. You will have an easier time falling asleep.
In the bathroom
Anise green can be suitable for the bathroom if you opt for a glossy paint. On one side, you can completely paint a wall. And on the other, create an echo with a mosaic wall in the same tones. You can also choose an anise green tiles. If you are daring, you can go so far as to equip yourself with a work plan integrating your sink(s)… in lime green.
In the living room
The most common anise green energizes a room in the blink of an eye. You can therefore choose to apply it in paint or wallpaper on a single wall in the room. If you have a large piece of furniture that is a bit dull, you can repaint part of it. It is a color for which you have to be bold. Perfect for getting out of your comfort zone.
In the kitchen
Even if it means playing originality with the anise green color, why not paint your ceiling? This immediately “twists” classic cuisine. To match the anise green of the ceiling, you can choose a central island or a table in the same green, but more discreet and muted.
What color to associate anise green in decoration?
Anise green goes well with different types of colors.
Vert anis & blanc
White is an ideal color to combine with lime green. It is bright and brings freshness, which gives the rooms where this combination is used a clean and light side. If you want a shade a bit warmer than pure white, you can choose ecru, eggshell, or off-white. Accessories or small white furniture on an anise green background particularly stand out. Add black to the lime green and white combination and you have a mix that works well in a contemporary space. Use these three colors interchangeably for your furniture and accessories to create a cohesive room decor.
Lime green & dark colors
Dark colors, especially all those in the brown range, contrast beautifully with anise green. Opt for deep brown woodwork, mahogany furniture – for example – and wooden accessories to warm up your room. Or choose black frames, black fixtures and black leather seats to create a room with an ultra-contemporary design. You can add sparkle to these associations by adding silver details via vases, candle holders, etc.
Lime green & similar colors
Use a color wheel to determine which colors are analogous to lime green. You will thus discover which blue and which yellow to use to be as harmonious as possible. Yellow warms up a room while blue gives it a fresh, airy or aquatic touch.
Vert anis & violet
Still using the color wheel, note that the opposite of lime green is its complement, purple. Depending on the exact color of your anise green, you will have a rather fuchsia purple as a complementary color. Depending on its vivacity, it will give the room a more dynamic and energetic or rather soft and romantic touch.
