Colour Inspiration - Green Interiors

Green is the most refreshing and calming of all colours. It has a strong association with nature and reminds of the deep green of forests and the lush green of grass. It is even said that green has a harmonious power and can diffuse anxiety.

There is a broad variety of green hues. They reach from dark forest, deep emerald (smaragd), rich olive, moss green, fresh apple, soft mint, and pale pistachio.

If you are not a fan of colours and you are not sure if green will suit your style you can start by adding just a hint of it. A natural way to embrace the green interiors trend is by adding plants to your home. Some people like to go all the way and creating an urban jungle feeling with abundant usage of green, tropical patterns and plants. (The more the better!)

Go green

For colour lovers, white walls are, quite frankly, boring. Nothing makes another colour pop more than another colour. Plants look even more fresh and juicy against a green wall.

Before you are painting your walls in green (and any other colour really) think about which direction the wall is facing. Is there plenty of natural light in the room? How will the light hit the wall? You can use a darker green on the walls, but for accessories and the furniture (trend are velvets), choose the same green in a lighter shade.

Green fits very well within the industrial style. It looks great among dark wood, leather furniture, and brass. If you do not feel comfortable (yet) to paint a wall in green, you can think about maybe using a statement wallpaper in a small space or go with just green furniture instead.

Be bold

A bright colour combination is enriching greens with mustard yellow and pink. Mustard is an uplifting colour and will add a happy feeling to your room. Keep it light and use it just as an accent colour. Adding in the yellow with a statement chair, cushion, throw or vase.

Pink, the complementary colour of green, can be used as a bold yet harmonious combination. Team up Magenta with a fresh apple green for a bright look. Dusty powder pink looks sophisticated with a deep emerald.
