I hope wherever you are the temperatures are warming and the snow has melted. In some parts of the country, grass is growing, birds are chirping, crocus bursting upward. We feel energized by the rebirth around us, hopeful for new exciting opportunities ahead. We have more pep in our step and look forward to lighter clothing and the warmth of the sun. Our eyes are pleased as a multitude of color around us, especially green, replaces the dreary white, grey and brown blanket of winter. What color do you associate with Spring? Right- Usually, it is the color green.
What Do We Know About the Color Green?
Green is the color of nature, fertility, life, balance and harmony. Green symbolizes self-respect, well being and it also means learning and growth. I read that green is a safe color; if you don’t know what color to use anywhere use green. Green is favored by well balanced people and often symbolizes money. It renews and restores depleted energy and is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being. This is why there is so much of this relaxing color on the earth. In fact, grass green is known to be the most restful shade of all the colors.

From a color psychology perspective, it is the great balancer of the heart and emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and the heart. Green is an emotionally positive color, giving us the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally, a natural peacemaker.
Don’t feel badly if green is not your favorite color!
All of the above is almost universal and yet despite loving Spring, some of us do not love the color green. It is not our personality color. Definitely not mine, however this Spring I will purchase a grass green or kelly green top to coordinate with all the bold colors I see in fashion. They are showing bright green with navy, yellow and orange. I fell in love with the color as it showed up in semi-precious stones and beads when designing green necklaces for our spring collection: Earth and Moon Design – Spring Collection
