Color of the Month: Spring Grass
by Diana Olvera
March is the month when the Earth wakes from its wintry sleep. Nature shows signs of spring: warmer temperatures, tiny sprouts poking up through the soil, and a vast array of birds returning from their winter journeys. Behr’s Spring Grass P350-4, a fresh and youthful, yellow-infused green, perfectly captures the essence of March, which is why we’ve selected it as the Color of the Month.
Jazz up a neutral entry with accents of of Spring Grass. Paint the inside-facing portion of the entry door in this cheery chartreuse-inspired hue to add a bit of energy to the space. Enhance the vibe even more by painting an entry chair or bench in the same color. A few colorful accent pieces atop a shelf give the area a playful feel without overwhelming the space.
Spring Grass is also an excellent accent color for a living room or a space with large windows and loads of natural light. Outfit the room with lampshades and throw pillows, each decorated in a plant theme. Prints of large leaves in assorted green hues emit a somewhat tropical vibe that immediately makes the room more inviting. Add in a handful of potted trees to bring the essence of the outdoors into your personal oasis. Furniture in light neutrals, as well as natural brown tones, enhances the natural feel even more.
Add loads of playful, creative energy to the kitchen with Spring Grass walls. This color serves as the perfect backdrop for the kitchen adorned with warm white cabinets and light gray countertops. Light wood-plank flooring rounds out this welcoming, open kitchen environment.
Spring Grass is also a pleasant color for dining room walls, especially when blending retro and contemporary styles into a new, fresh look. Outfit the space with a vintage green dining table from the 1960s or 1970s, paired with modern upholstered dining chairs in a pale rose-gold fabric. A classic Mid-Century-inspired wood and golden glass chandelier hangs over the table, rounding out the look. Updated furnishings such as a china cabinet, painted Spring Grass, also look great in this space.
Give a bedroom an upbeat yet pleasing atmosphere with walls of Spring Grass. This color adds just the right amount of cheerfulness without over-energizing the room, making it the perfect color to wake up to after a good night’s sleep. Outfit the rest of the room in light neutrals. A bed topped with a white comforter and forest green sheets adds balance.
