Don’t forget your veggies – 12 modern green finds to experiment with

From sage to spruce and forest to chartreuse, the design world loved green in 2022. Trend experts at Etsy and Pinterest note that the color is one of the most sought-after shades this year, noting the calming, harmonizing effect it has on indoor spaces. Green also helps to bring the outdoors in (remember the biophilic design?), giving your home a natural look that’s comfortable and balanced. And after more than 2 years in a global pandemic – calmness, balance and nature are all things we could use a lot more of. Another little-known fact about green, it’s deceptively easy to combine with other colors. So before you freak out into thinking you need to coat your walls with green paint (although we won’t stop you if you’re inclined), try to incorporate green into your life in small amounts with these modern finds† Visit the Design Milk Shop for more green products!
