Green with Envy

"Natural Neon"

Not really, but it sounded good. Green. It's one of those colors that there are million shades of. Everything from neon to hunter to kelly. Take your pick. It's said to be one the more calming colors because it's found so much in nature. Heaven knows I have oodles of photos with green.

Once again, as with all colors, you have to balance your intensity with quantity. I can speak from person experience on this color. I love green and slapped a bunch on my dining room walls without putting much thought into intensity when we first bought this house. That's so uncharacteristic of me, but then again I am known to be a little spontaneous at times...especially when fed up with RED walls. So,up it went, and down it came about two weeks ago. Couldn't live with it on such a constant daily basis. Personal preference, not because it really was bad. I actually kind-of miss it at times.

 So, let's check out some green inspiration pictures today. Enjoy!

 Enjoying this color series? Good! Hopefully I can finish up these so you have the last two or three before I crash into the bed tonight. Yes, I'm typing these on Friday prior to heading to the beach in the morning. Can you say "SLEEPY"?!
