Out with the grey and in with the green. It would seem the never-ending grey trend has been replaced by an invigorating alternative. Just as versatile as the cool and contemporary grey, green offers a dynamic and uplifting choice for homes, with a huge variety of inviting tones – from soft soothing shades to vivacious hues. Here, we explore the green trend and find out how you can add some gorgeous garden-inspired tones to your living space.
What does the colour green represent?
Often associated with a sense of serenity, shades of green evoke a feeling of calm and tranquillity.
The earthy, organic tones thought to harness our evolutionary need to be at one with nature – soothing the mind and creating a restful atmosphere.
A perfect choice for creating a peaceful sanctuary.
Decorating with green
Whether you want to create a harmonious haven or brave some vibrant vibes, there are plenty of green shades to choose from to inject a lease of life into your home.
A subtle shade of green will add a relaxing feeling to any space. Give your living room a fresh feel with a pale shade of mint or pistachio, or for a more intimate atmosphere, try warmer shades like sage and olive.
If you want a modern dark green living room, rich distinctive tones such as emerald or forest green will give your lounge an opulent aesthetic.
Alternatively, choose the green-blue hues of a tantalising teal for a slight twist on the trend, or lively lime for a hit of sunshine.
The great thing about green is the way it compliments so many other colours.
Surprisingly versatile, green can be matched with other shades to create a dreamy combination and enviable décor scheme.
Style green with neutral colours like white, cream and beige to create a calming spa-day effect.
Another popular pairing for green is a beautiful blush pink, which adds a pretty contrast to both paler and darker shades of green, or try a lovely lilac or lavender for a touch of country cottage charm.
Alternatively, a green and grey living room has a certain sophisticated and mature edge.
Green also works beautifully with wood and pairs perfectly with a wood-clad wall - an interesting alternate to paint.
Green living room accessories
If green walls and upholstery feel too committal, accessories are an easy winning way to add some pops of green to your living room.
Plotted plants are a great way to bring in some greenery and a sense of the outdoors.
Use soft furnishings such as cushions and rugs and other key accessories like lamps, vases and candles to add some lavish green elements.
