Have you ever wondered why you feel relaxed and comfortable in some places and tense in others? As bizarre as it sounds, it can have to do with the color of the space you are in. Color influences our emotions and perceptions (on an unconscious level) as any good marketer knows. Because advertising agencies and communication experts have long used the power of color. Some of them have a psychological effect that causes you to buy goods or services. Likewise, the colors you use to decorate your home can change your mood or influence your emotions. This is also the case with anise green, which, depending on how it is used, can create a feeling of energy, relaxation or tranquility.
In which room to consider anise green?
A priori, it is clear that apart from if you think 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 think about it now or change your mind on the matter? Let yourself be guided through all the rooms of the house, because there is not only one anise green, but many more or less clear or deep tones. Indeed, anise green, although unique, adapts to any room in your home. It’s up to you to adjust according to your wishes.
In the bedroom
The bedroom of a house should – ideally – evoke a soft and serene atmosphere. This is why pale green would be more appropriate in a bedroom than anise green. If, for example, you paint the four walls of your bedroom anise green, you may be on the verge of overdosing. The color may visually overwhelm you. This would have the effect of energizing you rather than relaxing you. But if you add light blue or lighter green or just white to it, it will soften this energizing effect. You will find it easier to fall asleep.
In the bathroom
Lime green can be suitable for the bathroom if you go for a glossy paint. On the one hand, you can paint a wall completely. 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 worktop integrating your basin (s)… in anise green color.
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 as paint or wallpaper on one wall in the room. If you have a large piece of furniture that is a little dull, you can repaint some of it. It is a color for which you have to be bold. Ideal for getting out of your comfort zone.
In the kitchen
Even if it means playing on originality with the color anise green, 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 like muffled.
What color to associate anise green in decoration?
Lime green goes well with different types of colors.
Lime green & white
White is an ideal color to combine with anise 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 little warmer than pure white, you can choose it off-white, eggshell, or off-white. The accessories or the small white furniture on an anise green background stand out particularly. Add to the lime green and white combination of black 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 your room. Or choose black frames, black light 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 & approaching colors
Use a color wheel to determine which colors are analogous to anise green. You will thus discover which blue and which yellow to use to be as harmonious as possible. Yellow warms a room while blue gives it a fresh touch, either airy or aquatic.
Lime green & purple
Still using the color wheel, notice that the opposite of anise green is its complement, purple. Depending on the exact color of your anise green, your complementary color will be a rather fuchsia purple. Depending on its liveliness, it will give the room a more dynamic and energetic touch or rather soft and romantic.
