MARCH 2021 - AMAZONITE
March is when we start shifting away from winter and focus on that fresh spring energy. it's a time where we naturally look for a refresh. That often means starting to swap out those deeper tones in our winter wardrobe for brighter hues and slowly starting to shed those cozy layers for lighter looks. The same feeling applies to our home decor as well! That's what we had in mind when we chose the Color of the Month for March: Amazonite!
Amazonite is a vibrant shade of blue-green, which perfectly captures that spring feeling we're after. It has the energy of green with the calming elements of blue, creating a gorgeous balance in any space. The Amazonite stone is truly special and is somewhat rare-it's not commonly found in very many places around the world. It has a similar look to turquoise stone, but is mixed with white flecks instead of black.
As for its properties, Amazonite is said to have a soothing effect on the nervous system, helping to ease stress and help keep the energy around it calm and cool. Who wouldn't want those qualities present in their home? it's also said to be associated with money, luck and overall success, often being called "the gambler's stone".
In decor, this turquoise tone is quite versatile, as you can easily change up your color palette to bring out the type of energy you want in the space. For a more calming, relaxed vibe in a spa-like bathroom or bedroom, pair it with soft neutrals like white, taupe, soft gray, and natural wood tones. For a living room, kitchen, or any other room where you want things to feel a little more lively, pair it with bright white, pops of yellow, pink, and other shades of green.
If you're after something on the more dramatic side, Amazonite would look incredible as an allover wall color, paired with more muted furniture and accessories. If that seems a bit too intense for your liking, you can always experiment with an accent wall, or choosing a couple of walls for this brilliant pop of color. It also works beautifully when you choose to bring it though just in furniture and accessories with a lighter wall color.
