Lately, we’ve showed you a lot green, eco-friendly designs, but I think it’s time we give the color green a little love. Green is often used to create a calming environment, but it can also infuse a space with natural energy, depending on the shade.

Dig in to some of my favorite green rooms on HGTV.
