Get the Look: Going Green – inspired by St Patrick’s Day
Green is synonymous with St Patrick’s Day, not to mention, this colour makes us green with interior envy, which is why we thought it was a great time to embrace green in all its glory and show you our vivacious and vibrant green décor ideas. Not to be confused with unnatural and garishly green, tacky décor, these natural tones of fir, sage, olive and emerald are all on-trend, and incredibly sophisticated shades to introduce into your interiors. This monotone look provides a calm, elegant and cohesive scheme that we think works perfectly for a mid-century living room.
Since it is St Patrick’s Day, we couldn’t overlook our Easy Velvet in Shamrock – the most vivid and sumptuous choice for a mid-century shaped sofa like our Philo. This rich, jewel-toned hue radiates mid-century style and is an effortless way of introducing a bold green colour to your space. We’ve chosen some stylish and subtle posters to adorn the walls, which are painted in Ambleside by Little Green; a greyish-green that is a natural, grown-up and calming shade. Pops of brass lift the monotone look and prevent it from looking too “flat”. We’ve introduced texture and some subtle pattern by overlapping two rugs; which is a top interior tip for 2019.
Use this Get the Look as a basis for the start of your green transformation and build on it by introducing plenty of house plants and other sophisticated pieces of art to create a monotone gallery wall. If the total green look becomes too much for you, then adding some soft pink shades will help break up the block colours, plus pink and green is a growing trend throughout 2019.
