I always hear complaints about how the tropical South doesn’t get “real” fall. (Sometimes from me, but still.) But if you know what to look for, this area does have seasons, albeit subtle ones. For fall, I look for the color moss green. Filled with tropical rainstorms, the summer has left everything so beautifully lush and intense. The light is warmer, the sunsets sooner, and the days just feel lusher. It’s raining as I write this, but the sun is still shining and the day feels cozy – even though it’s 80deg F outside.
Moss green is a color prevalent in “real” fall, too. Before the leaves completely fall, before the snow starts to cover everything, warm mossy green is the last color to shine before the air starts to cool.
This warm yellow-green is a bit magical, a bit whimsical and a natural fit for between the seasons. Let’s look at some ways you can add it to your color, interior or wedding projects this year. If you need some help with working with this for your project, just let me know!
This is a great color for painted surfaces – or tile for that matter. ESPECIALLY if you have a penchant for glossy surfaces. The opposite is true, too, it’s really great for velvety surfaces, too. It instantly adds a grounding element, setting a firm foundation for more neutral tones like white, cream and black, and looks amazing with brass accents that draw out the golden tones in the green. LUSH, right?
Inside is where this color shines – as long as you GO FOR IT. It works best when you use large swathes like an entire wall or a big comfy sofa. I am loving the dyed to match sofa, walls, and bookcases in the bottom right image – so dreamy and cozy!
Consider these products below a compliment to the paint colors in the first section – they should work together to get that cozy all surrounding feeling.
Weddings that use this shade of green tend to be a bit more relaxed, a bit more magical, with a bit of nature throughout. It’s a very natural feeling color, and so more botanical themes really bring this color to life. It also pairs very well to neutrals like white and grey and soft pastels like peach or pink. I love it with white flowers. Moss green is also one of my very favorite shades to wear and can complement many complexions when you pick the right tone for your party.
