*disclosure: Shock horror there are NO white walls in this post! Just bear with me a moment…
Although I will always love my favourite colour grey, I have a little feeling that we’re going to be seeing a lot more green this year. Not only is everyone mad about lush, leafy plants and flowers in the home, but green walls and furniture are fresh, bright and uplifting too. From dark, verdant hues to soft, pastel shades, a touch of green doesn’t need to be daunting and can work with the calmest of interiors. It might be a light feature wall in a kitchen, a cosy velvet sofa in the living room or faded French linen in the bedroom. It looks great as a backdrop to plants and cactuses or you could be a bit more adventurous and create some paint effects on the wall, perhaps a half wall of the colour if you’re a bit hesitant to paint the whole room.
Usually I’m not one for colour, I like soft muted shades that create a relaxed ambience, but a deep, soft green can be equally serene and peaceful. It brings to mind bucolic pastures and meadows, escapes to the countryside, fresh air and healthy vibes. Grey’s been so overdone, so how about it? Here I’ve gathered a bit of green inspiration for your green home:
