Get into the spirit of spring with these green décor ideas
Green is the quintessential colour of spring, so here are some ways to introduce it into your home
It’s that time of year when we’re all impatiently waiting for the green days of spring to arrive, but with the winter weather here to stay for the time being, you’ll need to find ways to bring spring to you.
Enter green. A refreshing and rejuvenating colour, green is associated with feelings of calm, positivity and focus. It comes in a host of different shades, from tropical turquoise to elegant emerald.
To celebrate this iconic hue, we’re here to show you how to transform your home with green – just in time for spring!
Pair green velvet with dark grey for sultry softness
If you’re not ready to go full-blown springtime with your green décor yet, use the colour as a way to liven up your more subdued spaces. Modern dark grey walls are the epitome or chic, but can appear quite cold if not paired with the right furniture. That’s why green velvet upholstery works so well, adding a soft and subtle contrast.
Brighten up a neutral space with muted tones
Muted greens are a great way to add interest to an otherwise a neutral room. Whether through plant life or soft furnishings, a few sage or mossy green additions bring a touch of freshness to rooms decorated with whites, creams and greys.
Go full glamour with an emerald feature wall
For a truly elegant look in the dining room or lounge, try introducing a bold feature wall in a statement emerald shade. Jewel tones can instantly elevate the look and feel of a space, creating an environment that feels both modern and traditionally glamourous.
Pick cool greens for a modern look
Smart modern spaces are best decorated with cool greens – those more on the side of blue than yellow. Cool green shades are less eye-grabbing than the likes of emerald but still pack their own sense of thoroughly contemporary homeliness when used as a wall colour.
Use juicy greens to spice up north-facing rooms
If your home is plagued with dark, north-facing rooms, you don’t have to stick to white in order to make them feel light and airy. Juicy green shades are deep yet bright, and aren’t washed out by a lack of daylight. In fact, a more shadowy space can help bold greens look rich rather than garish.
Pair springtime greens with frivolous prints
Country and rustic-chic interior design has been a popular route to take for a few years now when it comes to home décor, and green is one of the best statement colours for this style. Pairing grassy and leafy greens with playful floral-patterned wallpaper is a great way to evoke that cosy, cottage look that instantly welcomes you home.
Warm up your winter with turquoise
Whether more green or blue, turquoise is a colour that instantly reminds us of sunny days and warm climates. Use it as the backdrop for a continental design scheme by pairing it with sunny furniture and light woods.
Use olive green as a backdrop for statement furniture
Green is great for making a statement, but it can also be used to help your other furniture shine. Olive greens are subtle and classy by nature, making for the perfect canvas for a piece of attention-grabbing wall art or bright yellow seating.
