Fresh or sultry? Greens fall into these two camps.
If you opt for the fresh side of the palette, use accessories with clean lines and add in funky, floral motifs. If the sultry side of the spectrum appeals, keep these moody hues live with bursts of colour-clash pinks and yellows.
Here, industry experts tells us why green should always be seen in our homes:
Select vibrant shades to add a sense of luxury
Choose this feel-good colour as a reminder of summer all year. Invisible Green (above) works well with Rose Pink or pair with Stone White for high contrast. Team with rich brown or burgundy red leather upholstery for statement style. – Edward Bulmer, Natural Paint
Mad King George is a versatile jewel-like hue that’s a joy to have in your home. Use it as an accent in a palette of charcoal and soft grey for a contemporary look, or take the plunge and have it wall-to-wall, adding bright red or hot pink accessories. – Sarah Foster, Fired Earth
Make your space deep and meaningful with soulful greens
Flamboyant in bright light, Vardo (above) is a wonderful teal that works perfectly with reds or dark greys. It also has a fabulous depth and richness when used in darker areas. Partner with Down Pipe and copper accessories for a sultry scheme. – Charlotte Cosby, Farrow & Ball
Shades of jade and emerald create an opulent feel, so are perfect for using in bedrooms and relaxation areas. For a sophisticated look, paint areas flooded with natural sunlight in Amalfi Coast and complement it with pale pinks and whites. – Kasia Wiktorowicz, Valspar
