What does green mean? Go, of course. Prosperity and wealth, for sure. A little bit of envy, yes, if you’re not careful. But most of all, green means one very important thing: new beginnings. The rebirth of spring, the bloom of nature, the hope of a fertile, fresh future — green is a color the conveys optimism and opportunity. Think of green as a bonafide lucky charm — a color that will bring you glad tidings and good fortune for years to come. “I just need green,” Andre Leon Talley has said. Yea - us too!
When it comes to interior design, a green neon sign can intimidate some people (even Kermit the Frog admits that it’s “not easy being green”). But we say: don’t be shy! Blue green — which is softer and richer than our more piquant offering, lime green — is a great addition to any room. “Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises,” a wise man once said. Words to live by.
Where to go green
At Yellowpop, we think a green neon sign works particularly well in kitchens, where it’ll evoke the natural aura of fresh vegetables and lettuce, and turn your appetite towards healthy kale, arugula, spinach, grapes, apple, and kiwis. Loving making matchas and green smoothies? A green neon sign can help you make your own personal juice bar in your kitchen. Green is also a soothing color, so for those of you who use cooking dinner as a self-care wind-down after a long day, the radiance of a green neon sign will help you relax into the evening. For that reason, a green neon sign is also said to be a great bathroom color — its pacifying qualities perfect for soaking into a warm bubbly bath.
Blue green is fabulous for any room that features lots of houseplants. We see you all of you plant moms and dads out there with your birds of paradises, your norfolk pines, your angel wing cacti — a green neon sign will shimmer, and take on the calming aura of nature, in the backdrop of any space filled with living things. A neon green heart is a perfect love letter for any green thumb. Or, living somewhere temperate — Florida, California, Texas, we’re looking at you — in an awesome indoor-outdoor kinda home? Green looks gorgeous outdoors, accenting blue sky, brown trees, and, of course, lawn grass so perfectly.
What’s primo in green-o
What LED neon sign works best in blue green? There are some Yellowpop signs that couldn’t be anything but brilliant green: the green accent leaves on our lemons and peaches. “Good vibes,” “GOAT,” and “Come as you are'' are all made to be green.
But green can be used for so much more, particularly when it comes to making your own custom sign glow with positivity.
One recommendation: make an inspirational quote in bright neon green, the perfect way to keep you focused on your goals. What famous quotes get you pumped? Motivate you? Make you work harder? Give you hope? “Be the change you want to see in the world,” “What you plant now, you will harvest later,” “Be yourself — everyone else is already taken” — whatever the words that get you going are, wrap them up in green neon and it’ll be sure to keep you on your toes.
Green is also the color of success. Rap lyrics are a go-to standard for custom Yellowpop signs, and green is ideal for any Biggie (“Get money”), Kendrick (“Money trees is the perfect place for shade”), or Drake (“Me and my friends we got money to spend”) bars that you love. Or why not go super straight-to-the-point and just do a $ sign in blazing green?
How to mix and match
So, once you’ve got your LED neon sign, what other interior items to pair it with? We love blue green contrasted with pops of bright boldness. On the color wheel, the diagram that maps the relationship between different shades, green astrides yellow and blue, and will always — always — look ideal next to either. Greens, purples, and blues work nicely together because of their association with foliage, sky, and water. But we also think green with pink is a surefire summer firestarter, like the refreshing cool of a big slice of juicy watermelon. And since it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas decorations, a green sign can offset anything red to make for festive fun.
Which is to say: green is versatile, virtuous, and vivacious, the perfect color for your new neon sign. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box — and go green with gusto.
