14. Navy Contrasts: When infusing your interior with the color green 鈥 especially one as vibrant as Greenery 鈥 the best thing to do is balance it out with a darker shade like navy blue.

15. Bold Cabinetry: Buh-bye, accent wall 鈥 it鈥檚 *all* about the accent cabinetry in this bathroom. An all-white space gets a serious dose of color with green cabinets and matching green mirrors.
