Happy St. Paddy’s Day one and all! As the old Irish greeting goes “wishing you a pot of gold and all the joy your heart can hold”. Today we celebrate all things green. Did you know that one of the trendiest colours in home decor right now is green? It’s actually an incredibly versatile shade when it comes to decorating. This earthy hue ranges from bold and bright to subtle and warm, giving it the ability to transform your space in multiple different ways. From walls and furniture to accessories and fixtures, there are endless methods to sprinkle a bit of the Irish throughout your home decor.
Green is one of those colours that can be both trendy and traditional. A shade plucked right from mother nature that evokes images of lush grass and fresh air and is considered a calming, balancing colour that is all about new beginnings and renewal.
Whether you want to install an exotic green wallpaper, invest in an eye-catching furniture piece, or prominently display a stunning kitchen island or accent tile, the shade of green you choose will alter the mood in the space you are designing.
A dark, jewel-toned green is the perfect backdrop for an elegant, classy space no matter the size of the room. One way to embrace emerald tones is with a lush velvet green couch or a pile of hunter green throw pillows. A deep green makes a statement, so even a single piece of furniture can set the stage for the rest of the room.
On the other hand, a softer pastel or muted green will make a room appear light and airy. It’s a comfortable shade, perfect for guest bedrooms or office spaces and will create a sense of tranquility and peace. This shade is also a great choice for bedding in a minimalistic room as a way to add a little colour without taking away from the neutral palette. Vintage watercolours will often feature muted greens and can be a great way to add the colour into your home.
The greatest thing about green is that pairing it with other colours is easy because there are so many shades to choose from. One of the most popular colour palettes is a neutral and green one. Pairing crisp, whites with a deep green is a great way to add contrast and visual interest in a space, while keeping the feel fresh and modern. A black, white, and green colour palette is a dependable classic that looks great in nearly any style of home.
Using the colour green in home decor can add a rustic, homey feel to any space. Plus, unlike some other bold colours, green lends itself well to many different colour palettes and is both calming and energetic at the same time.
