Part yellow, part blue—or part warm and part cool—green is said by some to evoke Mother Earth and by others, the color of money. These three represent fresh takes; think of them as less stately than dark forest green and more formal than bright apple. Use one of TOH's new greens to add a lively accent piece, envelop a small space, or drench a sunny room.
Shown: Saxon Green by Farrow & Ball. This assertive midtone offers a spirited alternative to more subdued sage. Here, it travels down the walls and across the floor, lifting the spirit of a rustic kitchen.
