Refreshing Green

We subconsciously associate green with other elements of nature, which is why the color works beautifully in a space where water is present. A pale mint green can soften walls and create a bathroom that is refreshing and relaxing. To add interest, use different shades of green in details.

Energizing Green

Use brighter shades, such as apple green, to make an impact. In this contemporary design, white marble countertops with green veining pop against the neon-green glass tiles. Designed by Celia Berliner
