Designing With Artichoke Color Hues

Updated on September 30, 2013

Home Design Color Ideas Using Artichoke Green Accents

Decorating your home in artichoke green colors, promote feelings of well-being, stability, balance, and harmony. This color is also known to aid in concentration and can be used in office or study areas. Additionally, if you find yourself struggling with restless nights this color is ideal as a sleep aid in bedrooms.

The artichoke is in the thistle group, of the sunflower family, it was originally native to the Mediterranean. The "vegetable" that we eat is actually the plant's flower bud. If allowed to flower, the blossoms measure up to seven inches in diameter and are a beautiful violet-blue color.
