Gorgeously green interior inspiration
Greenery may have been Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017, but we’re happy to see naturally inspired green decor in 2018 and what better weekend to celebrate this earthy hue, than the weekend of St. Patricks day? Green is a great colour to promote the feeling of tranquillity and relaxation in your home, creating a calming atmosphere for you to live. It’s incredibly easy on the eye and can be used to make a statement or just for touches of colour. This weekend, we’re taking a closer look at how you can incorporate this fresh colour into your home.
Choosing green may seem like a bold choice, after all, it doesn’t really fall into the safety net that most blues or grey colour schemes may offer, but there is no need to be wary. Green tones pair perfectly with neutral colours and surroundings, so using green as a focal piece in your home can have natural appeal instead of feeling too intrusive.

Be one with nature in your own home by incorporating elements of the great outdoors by using fresh green tones, like we have here with our Oliver sofa that really packs a punch in Jade smart velvet. The darker shade of green draws out the fresh colours of the greenery behind it and opens up the space of the living room. Adding natural elements in your room, such as green plants, can create a harmonious environment, so if you’re designing a tranquil space, green may be the colour you’re looking for.

Accents of green
If you’re not ready to commit fully to the green scheme with a full-size sofa or painting the walls, then opting for an accent chair, armchair or even a footstool is a good starting place to add a little earthy colour to your interiors. Transform a neglected corner in your home or offer a seriously cool place for somebody to sit with silky green velvet or even a soft wool chair. It’s far less daunting to add colour to your home piece by piece.

Although green can be perceived as quite a statement colour, it does lend itself to other tones, making it easy to combine for a well thought-out look. Combine with blue for a refreshing, modern colour scheme in your living room, pair with yellow for a fresh, cheerful appearance or create a dark, stylish interior by matching green with blacks or darker shades of green.
