Why are the shades in older homes green?

I just bought an older home and the original shades in the house are this dark green. Why was it common, back in the day, to have dark green shades?

  1. You mean the shades as in you pull them down at night time or the ones on the outside of the house (shutters) ?

    Or do you mean light shades?

    I don’t really recall. I remember a lot of white houses with green or black shutters. The nite time shades I remember have all been those crappy white ones.
