Homes to Turn You Green With Envy
Not until you decide to paint a room do you realize the many variations of a color. Take green for example. There’s lime green, jade, chartreuse, evergreen and sage — and these are just a few of the options within the green color wheel. In the past decade, sage green became an extremely popular choice due to its calming nature, but now sage green is as common as builder beige.
In honor of the upcoming St Patrick’s Day holiday on Saturday, and employing some Irish luck, we dug up homes for sale with rooms in nearly every shade of green. Which ones are your favorites?
