Green furniture looks retro-chic: Coloured furniture had a major moment in the 50s, 60s and 70s and shades of orange, green, blue and brown especially dominated the scenes of rooms the world over. While we may not be as crazy about some of these looks as we once were, using green furniture as part of your decor will pay homage to the retro trend while still looking incredibly stylish. When it comes to furniture, try dark emerald shades for a uniquely sophisticated vibe and an ever-so-chic perch from which to lounge.
Green walls instantly create a peaceful oasis: Green brings you back to nature, which is why it feels so comforting to surround yourself in the shade. A green room will give you your own space of serenity from within the comfort of your own home! We love dark green colours such as Sharpe Green from our Originals line for smaller spaces such as hallways and bathrooms and softer green hues such as Sage, True Jade, Promenade, and Cocktail Olive for use in covering larger areas.

Green accessories add stylish pops of vibrancy: Green is a rich and vivacious colour, so using green accessories will add depth to your overall look. Green vases, planters, candle holders, and bowls will help uplift any room, and are easy (and economical!) to purchase.
Green textiles inject rooms with liveliness: It’s amazing the power that textiles can have on your space. Textiles provide the perfect opportunity to introduce texture and pattern to a room, and if you couple that with a potent colour such as green, your textiles will have even more impact. Green works well in any pattern really, and we especially love green-based florals, tartans, checks, dots, quatrefoils, and herringbones. Use green, texture- rich fabrics such as faux furs, suedes, brocades, wools, silks, and chenilles for additional interest and a well-rounded appearance.
Green plants and foliage make the ideal focal points: There’s a reason that walks in nature seem so therapeutic— and part of that reason is that you’re surrounded by greenery! Bring the outdoors in by using potted plants and green foliage around your home. These will not only exhilarate your spirits by offering some of Mother Nature’s TLC, they will look beautiful, and match any style.
Green is always a good choice when it comes to your home decorating palette, and this season we’re especially loving the versatile shade. From hallways and bathrooms to kitchens and bedrooms, green will revive your décor and stimulate the senses.
