Relaxing Green

Relaxing Green

Today, more than ever, we feel at one with nature. The lock-down of the past few months made us get outside a bit more. We can enjoy a walk in the woods again. Our garden looks spick and span and our terrace turns a beautiful shade of green.

Subconsciously, our actions and thoughts are influenced by the colours around us. Green relaxes our nervous system, can lower our blood pressure and has a calming effect. Unconsciously, we look for that colour in our leisure time. Green creates a positive flow and brings harmony and balance.

A balanced and harmonious interior can be achieved by using green shades. And what better way to do that than by bringing plants inside. That way, you feel more connected to nature and that has a positive effect on your personal health and well-being. You can do this in a very simple way by placing a few potted plants in your home. And you don't have to stick to the living room and the kitchen. Feel free to place a plant in your bathroom, bedroom or somewhere in a bright corridor or hallway.

Extra tips to bring even more green into your interior, and therefore even more positive vibes: Try putting an accent wall in a green shade. Or use wallpaper, cushions or a beautiful plaid with a plant motif. You'll see that it gives you instant energy.

Surprising? Maybe it is. But didn't we already do this a little? What we have all done in recent years is to add outdoor light to our homes. This is another way of getting in touch with the outdoors. For a long time, we have liked being able to see our garden from the inside and bring our living space as close to the garden or terrace as possible. And if that didn't work, we made an outdoor kitchen or pool house.

Bringing plants inside is a logical next step. In a society where everything is moving at breakneck speed, where we have little time to stop and often live and work in urban areas, this is the way to de-stress.

Give it a try! You will be surprised!
