Introduce lush, dark greens into your home to bring a bit of nature inside.
1. ENLIVEN YOUR ROOMS
Forest green hues represent life and nature, making a home look and feel more inviting. When deeper shades of green are used, they can give your living space a more sophisticated, even regal feel.
2. DEPTH OF FIELD
Play around with varying shades and textures to add dimension, such as teal and velvet. A velvety-soft rug lends cosiness and makes your space feel more homey. You can even paint or wallpaper one side of your living room or bedroom with relaxing dark green hues or patterns that remind you of nature’s beauty.
3. BRASS BAND
It’s all about the warm, burnished hue this season – team dark greens with a few small yet impactful brass accents that add luxe and elegance to your rooms.

MAKE IT PERSONAL
Forget generic gifts – Present your loved ones with something beautifully unique instead!

Stationery store kikki.K also offers a monogramming service (from $9.95) that lets you imprint letters in gold, silver and rose gold onto key rings, leather notebooks and chic travel wallets.
Window-washing is risky business, especially if you live on a high floor. Purge your panes of grime, dust and streak marks: Ecovacs Robotic’s Winbot 950, $699, is designed to navigate and clean hard-to-reach windows (both inside and outside), sliding glass doors and more, while powerful suction technology keeps it from falling. Hello, sparkling windows!
