Last one in my colour series but most definitely not the last. I adore Green and think its resurgence in design has come about with the love of Mid-century modern and biophillic design. I think the reason I love green is that it is such a calming colour and depending on the tone can evoke totally different feelings. I must admit my favourite greens are emerald to teal greens and then the sage greens. Anything too minty puts me off but that is just personal taste I guess. Here are some incredible spaces that I hope can inspire you to use more green in your interiors. If you don't feel that you are "a green person" - (I have had clients say this to me!). Try edging sideways into it from blue and consider teal.
Teal is the mid step between green and blue - so you get these really deep lush colours that remind you of the sea and nature. I adore this gorgeous green used as a backdrop to my favourite chandelier currently - designed by Paola Navone.
And this bedroom by Katerina Shamanova is super luxe and playful - did you spot the bird light?
Now I know I said that I am more partial to deep greens and not so much into minty ones, but I just want to share some things that I think do work and I would consider using in my interiors. Here these pale sage greens work really beautifully in a relatively minimal interior. They are paired with lighter woods and greys to create a contemporary and fresh feel.
If you want it to be a little moodier, more sophisticated maybe - try a slightly more saturated tone and pair it with similar darker colours for a more umptuous feel.
For more playful and jewel lovers - steer yourselves towards the emeralds. Especially if you can get your hands on some gorgeous tile! I mean look at the high gloss lustre on this family bathroom by Kelly Mindell.
If you are really brave keep the emerald but go everywhere with it - like in this private dining room at a social club in San Francisco.
Now for the brave few, come with me to a darker side. Its gorgeous and comforting. Painting a large proportion of your walls dark green has this incredible immersive experience - it makes the space feel like a jungle or a forest. It reminds me of the brilliant Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku which is Forest bathing - this is where you spend time in a forest to reduce your stress and improve your well being! If you can achieve that feeling in your home - SCORE!
So get a load of these gorgeous spaces. We start with the stunning bedroom created by Nicola Broughton (aka The Girl With The Green Sofa). Or look at that incredible kitchen by deVOL. I love green so much I even used it in my living room.
