RUG INSIDER presents a selection of complementary colored carpets which remind it’s not easy to be green. There is always a flourish of activity surrounding the announcement of color trends for the coming year, with Pantone’s proclamation of Ultra-Violet for 2018 as no exception.
But for those who are a little less attuned or for whom purple simply isn’t flattering, RUG INSIDER presents a selection of complementary colored carpets which remind it’s not easy to be green.
“Being Green” lyrics by Joseph Guilherme Raposo
It’s not that easy being green,
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves,
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow, or gold,
Or something much more colorful like that,
It’s not easy being green,
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things,
And people tend to pass you over,
'Cause you're not standing out,
Like flashy sparkles in the water,
Or stars in the sky,
But green’s the color of spring,
And green can be cool and friendly-like,
And green can be big like an ocean,
Or important like a river,
Or tall like a tree,
When green is all there is to be,
It could make you wonder why,
But why wonder why wonder,
I am green, and it’ll do fine,
It’s beautiful, and I think it’s what I want to be.
