Decorating with Green

Green is one of the most versatile colours on the spectrum and is currently experiencing a renaissance in popularity for interiors.

From deep rich greens with an opulent feel to mossy, earthy mid tones through to pale, mint green, your home will feel welcoming and calm wherever you choose to feature green.

In recent years we have seen the rise of Art Deco inspired interiors featuring deep green walls, palm prints and gold and glass bar carts. This look is strong and Angelica (see image above), Pullman Green or Deep Adam Green are natural winners in Chalky Emulsion for bedroom and living room schemes.

Not yet convinced by dramatic and dark? How about a mid-tone like olive? These mid tones work well in hallways, pulling together and uniting the rest of the rooms in your interior colour scheme. Below is a fantastic example of Tapestry Green in a bedroom, by @Thankfifi

Light, pastel greens can feel fresh and airy, energising you for the day ahead. This is perfect for a bathroom space, which can often be small and benefits from light colours to give a feeling of space. Soft Green gives a relaxed feel to this bathroom:

Greens are thought to be calming and restorative, associated with growth, nurturing and new beginnings. Paired with similar colours and tones, your interior will feel like a sanctuary.

Greens such as Mercer Green are energising, and are ideal for pairing with brights.
