|Dreamy Decorating Scheme with Dragonfly Art|
Many Interior designers often praise how easy it is to be green with dreamy shades of greige. In this month's Traditional Home, Lee Jofa's creative director Stephen Elrod explains that greenish gray works well in homes because its extremely versatile scheme can be expressed in setting casual or formal, modern or traditional, quiet or bold, urban or county.
Top 4 shades of greige are...
|Vert De Terre: "The all-time best is Vert de Terre, which is just the right mix of green and gray. Earthy, yet elegant. It reminds me of a wonderful old potting shed or the 18th-century boiserie in some amazing Parisian town house that you've always wanted to sneak inside to see. It's also one of the only greens that looks equally good in bright sun or candlelight." —Timothy Corrigan Farrow & Ball|
Creekside Green: "Green is a soothing color. Traditionally, it's associated with healing. This is a sage green that stays muted, even with the sun on it. It makes me feel relaxed. It's not a color that is shouting to be noticed. It's calm and comfortable." —Amelia T. Handegan Benjamin Moore
