Green interiors can be great ambiance builders when crafted in deep shades, but once the background colour is on it can be difficult to get a grasp on where to go with the theme. These four interiors illustrate how to furnish and accessorise an all-green room, as well as how to build colour via furniture items themselves. We have green living rooms, green bedrooms, green bathrooms and a green kitchen to feast your eyes on, and gather tips to craft your own gorgeous space. You might just colour your friends green with envy!
Our first green interior belongs to a young energetic couple with a free outlook on life and style. A retro floor lamp and a modern chandelier inject shape into the room, along with a bold terracotta, blue and yellow design rug.
A streamlined blue sofa teams up with yellow 1950s style armchairs, against a shade of green that falls almost into the neutral palette. The vibrantly coloured furniture is able to stand proud against the backdrop, without the sterile atmosphere brought by many white interiors, or the safeness of beige or grey.
Home tour number three has a crisp monochrome backdrop, where heavy areas of black crash abruptly into icy white expanses. It’s the modern sofa that brings the green moment.
The green sectional stretches out in front of a clean white kitchen, and meets with a grey upholstered counterpart. A terrarium bowl grows a mini moment of greenery on a modern coffee table down in front.
Green tinted modern artwork enlivens a plain white wall.
Sofa tables run along the back of the green seating, and break between the two contrasting coloured sofa sections.
Green tiles and an all-green double sink bathroom vanity build a solid green vanity wall in the bathroom. On the other side of the room, a tiled bath and splash zone make up one entire emerald green wall.
We take a sudden leap from the green theme to a pink bedroom design, but the ribbed gypsum wall panel and modern wall sconces combo prevails.
The second green bathroom is a wet room, tiled top to toe in dark green tile.
