Decorating with a green colour palette

Decorating with a green colour palette

There’s something about green - deep forest tones, vibrant grass shades or soft leaf greens, every shade of this timeless palette sings with the joy of nature, and is a wonderful way to bring a little of the outside in. Forever in style, this joyful palette is having a moment, so we’ve rounded up a few of our hints and tips to get you started with your palette and create an interior which makes visitors green with envy...

The colour of the great outdoors, green has long been associated with the healing power of nature. This chameleon colour can range from calming to uplifting, enveloping to vibrant depending on the shade, tone and application. The ultimate in versatile design style.


Deep green: cosy, warming, rich

Bold green: uplifting, vibrant, fresh

Pale green: calming, inviting, subtle

Pair with: fresh white for crisp, fresh finish. Pink is a classic combination - soft and pastel, or bolder. Greens look beautiful with black accents, and tone perfectly with wood and natural materials - think bringing the outside in.



In print

Abstract, geometric, natural, a little green print is the perfect way to complete a room. Opt for a hand-block printed quilt to complete a calming bedroom, or style a sitting room sofa with a stack of throw cushions.
