When it comes to the colour green, we go by the rule “green should always be seen.” You may have noticed there has been a major influx of green pieces in the fashion world, with top brands opting for emerald or moss green pieces. The same can be said for Interior Design.
Before we get in depth about why we love this colour, let’s go back to the basics. The word “green” in modern English comes from the Middle English and Anglo-Saxon word ‘grene’ meaning ‘grass’ and ‘grow’ in German. It’s no wonder that we associate the colour with nature, energy, growth and harmony. So when it comes to injecting this colour into your home, you’ll most likely be seeking ways to create a soothing and balanced atmosphere. Adding colour to your space can be a big commitment. We’re here to show you how you can do this subtlety and effectively without breaking the budget.
The living room is an integral part of the home. After a hectic day at work, it’s where you come to relax, wind down or spend time with family and friends. So it’s no wonder that green has become a popular choice in this space. It’s the right shade to create this relaxed atmosphere we all need.
If you’re not completely on the green bandwagon, but are intrigued to try it out, opt for a green lounge chair. A lounge chair is the perfect piece to trial colour trends. Not only is it versatile in more spaces than just the living room, it can complement existing furniture in a neutral shade. Take for example a beige sofa or grey rug. Pair these with a green fabricorvelvet lounge chair and you’ll create a complementary colour palette.
If you’re a person who likes to make a statement (you go Glen Coco) make it with a velvet green sofa. Our Denmark Sofa has been made in a deep regal green velvet fabric which will add contemporary elegance to any space.
Decorate with Green
We all love to add decor pieces to our home, it’s the easiest and most successful way to add personality and your own sense of style to a space. Plus, decor pieces can be easily interchanged or swapped depending on your mood or the season. Simple. The trend of plants in the home is rapidly on the rise. As much as we love the real deal, we know it can be difficult to keep up with the maintenance and upkeep they require. Insert: artificial plants. We know this is a touchy subject for some, but if it works for you, go with it.
Our suggestion: Purchase good quality artificial plants and fool your nearest and dearest. We guarantee they won’t be able to tell the difference.
Another way to add some green to your space is through artwork. There's nothing better than a beautifully hand painted print that just sits above your bed or sofa. We honestly could not live without wall art and an option like our Modern Teal Abstract Print or our Summer Leaves Wall Art Print will inject that touch of green without overdoing it.
Dine with Green
Green isn’t just made for the lounge room. If you’re dining space needs a little push in the colour direction, consider purchasing dining chairs in a shade of green. Our Jora Dining Chair is a subtle option that features a timeless design and simple shape that will ensure you can style the chair into any contemporary space.
Whichever piece you choose, our recommendation is to try green in your home. Whether you opt for a small piece or a statement making sofa, we could all do with a little more harmony and balance in our lives. You won’t regret it.
