10 times green was implemented perfectly in interior style

Give green a chance
   Hannah Caton  |  written on: 21-08-2019 14:30pm

You won’t find much colour in showrooms or in houses on the market nowadays. Estate agents tell clients that including colour is a surefire way to unnecessarily put off potential buyers – and they’re right. It adds personality. But when you finally have your own home that’s exactly what you want to do! Seeing as green is the colour of August (and it just happens to be beautiful) we’ve compiled a list of our ten favourite examples of green taking centre-stage in interior spaces. Enjoy!

Inspiration by Farrow & Ball

Farrow & Ball are internationally famous for their stunning paint colours, I usually love their pinky tones, but the colour 'Bancha' is possibly a new favourite. A deeper option to the popular olive colours, this tone gives off wonderfully serene vibes. It pairs well with lighter, plain décor.

These tiles from Bert and May are somewhere between Great Gatsby and Victorian-chic. Again, they are a deeper colour that create a mature feel in a space.

These shutters from Tine K Home are a great example of using just a touch of green as opposed to a whole wall or splashback zone.

Did you know we can see more types of green than any other colour? This room certainly takes advantage of that. Whilst this might be too much in a kitchen or living room, the pairing of zesty green and blues in this bathroom works perfectly to create a fun, bright space.

Pure emerald is the only description you can give to these gorgeous cabinets from InHouse. The grey and neutral tones used elsewhere in the kitchen pull out the colour and make it pop!

A more relaxing choice makes sense for a bedroom. Like this toned-down dusty olive green. A colour like this allows more room for other colours to be used in the room, gold and blues fit in happily.

Another way to have green in your bedroom is to use it in your headboard. This is perhaps the most toned-down green in our ten.

Inspiration by Masterclass Kitchens

Just the under-counter section is coloured in this kitchen and it adds so much depth and intrigue to what could have otherwise been your bog-standard industrial-chic space.

Something about blue and green tiles work a charm in bathrooms, it’s possibly because they call water to mind. Whatever the reason, the outcome is a room that oozes calm. It would be hard not to unwind in this stunning bathroom.

Lastly, one of the lightest green touches in our selection. Who says green has to be a sombre, deep colour?
