With Spring just around the corner, I'm overwhelmed with the desire to add a little bit of green hues to every room in my NYC apartment.  Sure my fiddle leaf fig tree has added a splash of color to the living room, but I'm wondering... how much further can I go?  

1. Go Slow, Lay Low

When decorating, I prefer to add small items that add a pop of the color, rather than an entire wall or large piece furniture.  I love how these rooms have mastered the art of being a green oasis with sensible style.

2. Take It Up an Interior Notch

Large furniture creates a focal point that instantly draws the eye to desired color.

3. Don't Hold Back

For the brash and unbashed, go bold!  Renovate your room with an emerald green accent wall or a hunter green room.
