IDF is fascinated by color psychology and the impact that selecting the right palette can have not just on the design of a room but also the spirit it evokes. Green is a powerful shade that can go from symbolizing a strong connection with nature to representing tranquility and help relieve stress or even evoke jealousy. The key is striking the right balance of the tone, so here are a few great picks for you to maximize the positive aspects of green.
