Green makes a great color selection for a garden shed. Duh, it’s the color of vegetables for gosh sakes. It is a very ‘earthy’ color expressive of a kindred spirit with nature. Green immediately brings to mind the lush green of grass, trees, and forests. Perhaps because green is so heavily associated with nature, it is often described as a refreshing and tranquil color. Its restful, soothing and cheerful.
WHY A GREEN SHED IS COOL
It is a cool color that symbolizes the natural world. But, remember green is also often connected to good luck and jealousy. A four leaf clover and ‘green with envy’ come to mind. Maybe you should paint your shed green if you want to make your neighbors jealous. Or, maybe if you are just a so-so craftsman that needs some luck, green is just the color for you!
PAINT YOUR SHED GREEN FOR EXTRA SERENITY
Green is often used in decorating for its calming effect. For example, guests waiting to appear on television programs often wait in a ‘green room’ to relax. Green is thought to relieve stress and help aid healing. Interesting fact, those who have a green work environment experience fewer stomach aches. Green is optimistic, a color that symbolizes a new beginning. One might envision a fresh green plant emerging from the soil. Beyond all this, green evokes compassion, as it projects emotions of kindness, helpfulness and caring. So, if you want visitors to your back yard to really like you and frequently help you out with difficult projects, maybe green is the way to go for your new shed?
