The Green Room

Its that breath of fresh air, green. It can be cooling, contemplative as well as bold and elegant or perhaps brash. I think the reason we love it so is because nature is so liberally painted with it, in broad varied strokes. Bringing green in the home feels, well, natural.

Not entirely sure where this colour fits, lets sit on the fence and call it blue-green. I always love a bit of wood panelling (as you can tell).

I don’t know if I would be bold enough to paint a wall in such a rich shade of forest green. I love the effect though, set off nicely by brass and a sumptuous tufted velvet settee.

A fresh look, a geometric mural in soft green, a slight blue and a rose tinted white. The Mid Century Modern touches are lovely.

Golden orbs hang from chalky green walls and ceiling. Copper letters shimmer, all grounded with denim blues and a parquet floor.

What a peaceful spot, a sleeping nook with botanical touches. The carved wood is just lovely.

Sage green stairs in the perfect shade. I love them against that paper bag, I think a putty pink would be a nice complementary colour.

What an idea, pairing chalky black walls with grass green curtains! It works though, complete with a showpiece chandelier to boot.

The same emerald green here acts as backdrop for a refined floral chair.

Something about these elements would look just as happy with a great master’s muse sitting just so. The grey-green walls and worn wood are a welcome combo.

Achingly rich green is lavished on a wall of cupboards.

Something about this image is very reassuring, a stripy green coach with giant cushion sits in front of a verdant green wall. It proudly displays slightly ancient botanical prints. Not too formal, a little shabby to go along with that chic.

Our final thought uses matt shades in a new Shaker style. The charcoal grey, mint green and milky lime are a soothing blend in a space that feels old and new. In the best kind of way.
