Using different hues of green will give clients a sense of nature and a calm feeling in the space. Green can create a balance and harmony in the body. It is beneficial for the heart and blood problems. It is known to influence cell structure and muscles. Since choosing a design that goes along with trees and the forest, the green tones will tie that together. Choosing different shades gray and brown will bring in the forest feel. Choosing a mixture of light and dark colors with warm tones will make the space feel safe and inviting.
