Green has gone from being a rather old fashioned and stuffy shade to being hugely on trend given the amount of soft furnishings and accessories now boasting this verdant tone.
Whether it’s a rich leafy hue or a paler pastel tint, green just seems to be cropping up in all kinds of stylish schemes.
All of a sudden it looks and feels super elegant and grown up and a welcome alternative to bold primary colours or safe neutral ones.
As our selection of inspiring interiors shots for SS19 prove, green can be used in so many different ways, whether on furniture or as an incidental aesthetic accent on accessories such as photo frames, ceramic vases, rugs or even statement foliage.
Complement with layers of rich buttermilk, taupe and biscuit for a really fresh feel or for a more vibrant hit weave in some metallics such as glimmering bronze or rose gold.
If you don’t want the hassle of redecorating then introduce prints courtesy of cushions or curtains. And if you want an instant lift in your kitchen or dining room then how about some green crockery or glassware? Give this shade a go and I guarantee it’ll make all your friends green with envy.
