QUEEN GREEN - 8 INSPIRED STORIES FOR DECORATING WITH GREEN

Lauren Graham

From classic olive tones to bold emerald velvets and lighter hues that create a subtle softness, green is a colour choice well worth considering for a Spring update. It's arguably the most soothing of all colour options, offering both personality and peacefulness at the same time.

We've put together some exciting green stories this month for some fresh inspiration, take a look:

1. ORGANIC GREENS

The natural textures of linen paired with the organic inspired prints of Nomad make for a beautiful green combination. Florals, folksy art and soft hues paired with a pop of olive velvet create a gorgeous green scheme.

2. JEWEL TONES

Make a powerful statement with an accent piece recovered in a luxurious jewel-toned velvet. The emerald chaise adds an air of sophistication in a deep emerald tone offset by strong monochromatic patterns.

3. GREEN ON THE WALLS  

Think outside of the box and get your dose of green by adding a feature wall. We're loving this pop of green that brings the outside in with  modern floral print.

4. COLOURFUL KITCHENS  

Does your kitchen need a splash of colour? Consider pops of  light green in a tiled backsplash, or give dated cabinets a lick of green paint. Organic green hues will compliment wood finishes and lift a bland cream or white space without overpowering.

5. SOFT AND SUBTLE  

Spruce up your couch with some stunning scatters in different shades of green, textures and images and bring your lounge to life. This setting from our Cape Town showroom has us going going "green" with envy:

6. COOL CALM AND COLLECTED   

Use different shades and textures of green to bring colour to a neutral bedroom without sacrificing a cool, calm space that's not overly feminine or masculine.

7. PRETTY PEPPERMINT

If your love of green veers a little towards a blue undertone, then consider peppermint hues to create a modern country-inspired living room. Soft, subtle and modern, this look is beautifully liveable ever so easy on the eyes.

 

8. TROPICAL TURQUOISE

For a more tropical setting like round the pool, greens like "seafoam" that lean towards more turquoise tones are right at home. Even  few scatters can lift an outdoor area and lend themselves to a more tropical scheme. Bright punchy accessories complete the look.
