Green is the color of growth, nature and money. While dark forest green is associated with conservatism, masculinity and wealth, light green is calming, harmonious and peaceful. It's also traditionally associated with envy, good luck, generosity, comfort and fertility. Create a botanical atmosphere by matching green with a cool blue, light brown or beige. Using green with orange, yellow or even purple can create a fruity palette.
