With spring right around the corner, we're ready to ditch the heavy winter layers and dark moody colors for something a little lighter and brighter. Synonymous with nature and new beginnings, green is the ideal hue to kickstart your home's warm-weather refresh. Whether you go for a pale seafoam or emerald jewel tone, a few pops of the vibrant color are enough to instantly transform your space. And did we mention it's the perfect way to get into the St. Patty's Day spirit without going crazy with all those cliché shamrocks and pots of gold?
