Lively Greens

Yellow-based greens feel sunny and inviting. "With lots of crisp white trim, apple and olive greens can be really refreshing," says Kathryn Precourt, an interior designer based in Ashfield, Massachusetts. Precourt notes that such greens are popular today because they evoke nature and the environment and so have positive associations. In this high-ceilinged space, two vibrant shades warm up stainless-steel appliances while an abundance of white-painted surfaces keeps them from seeming too bright. These high-voltage hues also add energy to the room by ramping up the available natural light.
