If you’re a fan of strong colours, you’ll easily find a shade of green to suit. Dramatic and vibrant but above all serene, decorate with emerald, olive or forest for an interior you’ll never forget. These shades have the remarkable ability to make you feel snug in winter yet cool in summer. Have confidence in the knowledge that green goes with everything, just as it does in nature.
Here are three easy ways to use green to create an oasis of calm in your home for relaxation. Think paint – for walls and furniture, plants, tiles, artwork, and soft furnishings.
Play with layer upon layer of greens, including a few of its paler hues. Include white if you wish. And remember – visual and tactile textures are a powerful tool.
Luxe it up
Nothing makes deep greens sing more than a touch of gold, brass or even copper – be it in a satin or shiny finish.
Add black or charcoal accents for sophistication, terracotta, leather or mustard for earthy appeal, and dusty pinks for a contemporary look.
