7 Enchanting Homes Embracing 2022's Biggest Colour Trend
From subtle sage to bold emerald, green is a versatile colour that can be used to enliven a home. The green colour trend is an understandable one given how physically easy this hue is on the eyes and how it helps us embrace the outside world. In the language of colour therapy, it is associated with serenity, making it a particularly good choice for a bedroom.
Whether employed as a feature wall, bedding, or furniture choices, it's hard to go wrong with introducing green into your home as it adds an earthy, elegant element to a space that won't go out of style.
Take design cues from these seven rooms that have embraced lashings of green and that will inspire you to swathe your home in the colour du jour.
7 Green Interior Design Ideas
1. Verdant bedroom
The sunroom turned bedroom nook that sits within Alex Draper's boho abode acts as a relaxing space to unwind, particularly during the warmer months. Here, Olive and Sage linen pairs beautifully with the hanging devil's ivy and greenery peeking through the windows. It's a verdant hideout that feels serene when paired with wicker accents and bathed in natural light.
2. Striking kitchen
If you're looking to add colour into your kitchen design but feel shy to do so, opting for more natural tones like greens and blues could be the way to go. This stunning forest green kitchen in Amanda Callan's converted church home is a showstopping example of a cooking area that embraces colour yet still looks sophisticated.
3. Elegant bathroom
The elegant freestanding bath in Pandora Skye's Victorian terrace adds a classic yet interesting aspect to the space that acts as a a great complement to the pink details throughout the room.
4. Lavish living room
Rugs are an easy way to lay down some colour in a space. Here, in ceramicist Jessica Choi's living area, the mint velvet rug, mid-century black chairs, and travertine coffee table cohesively work together to create an inviting place to entertain guests.
5. Nature-inspired kitchen
Another beautiful example of how green can be employed in a kitchen, this statement island bench in a muted tone makes for the perfect contrast against the warm hues of the flooring, walls, and furniture. These juxtaposing shades work so well together because they mimic natural landscape hues.
6. Maximalist living space
Filled with colour and personal pieces, the Manhattan rental of Jordan Ferney is anything but boring. The seafoam joinery and Olive tablecloth work together to create a verdant display against the yellow chairs.
7. Artistic touches
Bobby Clark's bedroom features a beautiful olive green artwork that perfectly complements the Sage linen and plant. "I painted the huge green piece in the bedroom when I was 36 weeks pregnant. I was really restless sitting at home and waiting for our baby to come...I drove to Porter's Paints, found the perfect olive green and painted it in about an hour," she shares. Paired with Oatmeal linen, it's a dreamy and restful haven.
