Color Crush: Olive Green

Not Just for Military Jackets


Olive green is a powerful color. It's pretty commanding, so it should only be used as either an accent or the showstopper (without competition). But man oh man, it works in so many spaces. It's made a comeback because it's a natural companion to the earthy, neutral California cool thing that's happening right now in the design world. You know, the whole white walls, natural wood, brass hardware, and brown leather combo thing that I love. Adding in olive green simply punches up the depth of the design. Gotta love it.
