“From the tallest trees to the deepest valleys, green surrounds us,” said Debbie Houston, creative director, Shaw Floors. “It’s vibrant, but at the same time, soothing. It changes with the seasons without ever getting old or boring. Lush is nature’s neutral,” Houston says.
Lush can be a statement color, and it goes well with many styles such as glamorous, rustic, and contemporary. The color also does well with jewel tones and neutral hues.
