Color of the Month: Jade

by Erika Woelfel

The signature color for the month of March is green, leading most of us to think of shamrocks and leprechauns around St. Patrick’s day. While bold kelly green is a great color for Irish celebrations, there is another nature-inspired hue that is easier to live with in home environments: Jade.

Jade has a long and honorable history. It has been widely used for thousands of years in Asian cultures for both art and ornamentation. In China, jade symbolizes loyalty and is highly prized.
