Green is the colour of the moment in interiors right now. We love its calming effect and how we feel more connected to nature. Read on to find out how you can inject a bit of green into your home this Spring.
Dig out those paintbrushes
Paint is a relatively affordable and quick way to spruce up your interior. If you’re ready for a big change why not try painting all four walls and your ceiling a rich velvety green - we love Ditch the Tie by Coat Paints. Not feeling quite so brave? Try a lick of green paint on your kitchen cabinets or bathroom paneling as a way to revitalise and refresh. Green 02 by Lick is the soft sage of your dreams.
If you’re not ready to commit to a whole green room (or your landlord won’t let you) why not try upcycling a chest of draws or some chairs: painting them green will breathe new life into them and give you a relaxing Sunday afternoon activity.
For those who are not into painting or perhaps prefer a more neutral colour scheme in their home-styling, why not try green accenting with your decor? Plants are the most obvious way to bring the outside in and can actually have a very calming effect.
Monstera is a great, low maintenance plant for beginners. Cacti bring a lovely burst of colour into the room - and they won’t mind if you forget about them for a month (or 12). Botanical art prints are another option for people who might not trust themselves with the real things - no matter how low maintenance. Put it in a frame and you can be sure it won’t die on you!
Enhance your interior with a pea-green boucle blanket or green ticking stripe cushion.
Our Terrazzo dog bed is a great way to add a subtle touch of green into your living room... We don’t believe in sacrificing your interior style when it comes to functional items around the home like your dog bed. Terrazzo has a neutral base colour and is patterned with different shades of green that will compliment any other greens throughout your home. Or, if it is included in a more neutral colour palette it can act as a statement splash of colour all on it’s own. It’s just a bonus that it’s sustainably made, environmentally friendly and long lasting too!
Whatever green you bring into your home, why not try to follow the example of Settle's Terrazzo dog bed: Green in colour, green in values!
