When you come back from a holiday, one of the first things that capture your attention is how dull every place appears, especially places that you see day in and day out like your home and office. It is easy to get bored of the designs and feel of these places if it doesn’t stimulate you or interest you. A great office or home should fill you with energy, and there are multiple ways to do it.
One of the easiest ways to turn your home and office into spaces that give you energy is to add the color green. Green is a color that adds freshness to any space. Think about a holiday where you are amidst trees and nature, swimming in a beautiful ocean that reflects all the nature around it. Without the color green, that space wouldn’t be so serene. Due to this connect with nature, in many South-East Asian countries, green symbolises harmony. It is connected with nature and with harvest, a time of joy and prosperity, and is seen as a color of new beginnings.
Maybe this is also why, i always find myself on a beach holiday somewhere. This is where i feel most refreshed and relax.
To add green in any space, you can simply add plants, both indoor and outdoor. Plants bring about a breath of fresh air and liven up any environment. Indoor plants such as sansevieria and spider plant are even known for their air purifying properties, making it great for urban homes and offices. You can choose to have a single plant or an indoor oasis, and whatever you opt for will bring in freshness to your eyes.
But if you are like me, always on the go, travelling and well, have a problem with commitment (lol), having an artificial plant still lets you enjoy the physical effect of greenery without putting any effort. They are obviously easy to maintain and just as beautiful.

Another easy way to add the color is to add paintings which focus on green. You can add abstract, nature or landscape paintings to do this. Using paintings are also a great way to make your room elegant, or even quirky, depending on your style.
When you’re stressed out about work, and have no luxury of greenery outside your window, hanging up a green abstract oil painting or adding artificial plant will help you calm down, and may even transport you to beautiful places.
So add green to your space in multiple ways to bring in the joy of spring, and create a space that brings you energy and harmony, at the comfort of your space.
