4 fresh green interior ideas for the new year
Associated with nature, abundance, and vitality, kickstart 2022 on a fresh, lively note with the color green.
1- Give the kitchen an elegant update with Pantone 17-6030 Jelly Bean
Undertones of luxurious jade create this lush color reminiscent of peppermint and greenery – great for adding subtle drama to a modern kitchen diner. “Experiment through little pops like dinnerware and throws, or kick it up a notch by giving your cabinetry a fresh coat of paint,” says Rebecca. “A warm oak dining set pairs exceptionally well and helps to balance this cool green, as do small pops of a soft peach-like Pantone 5175 C.”
2- Energise the bedroom with pops of Pantone 13-0443 Love Bird
“In the bedroom, use little bursts of Love Bird for a boost of energy and positivity, and layer with a deeper forest green to tone things down,” suggests Rebecca. Experiment through soft furnishings like bedding and throws, or brighten up a nook with a Love Bird accent wall. Choose a warm oak bed to get a soothing, natural look and decorate with natural materials like plants or candles.
“These bright, citrusy tones are great for creating a color pop behind artwork or photos. They also make stylish backdrops for taking pictures,” she says.
3- Experiment with playful prints in Pantone 14-0156 Summer Green
Summer Green is a pleasing, almost pastel shade that works well in an airy bedroom or living room. “Use removable wallpaper as a rental-friendly hack to instantly transform any space. In this fun, tropical-inspired bedroom, the Summer Green botanical print adds character in a chic, curated way,” says Rebecca.
Complement this cool tone with plenty of white and pops of teal, pastel pink and mint green to create a contemporary space.
4- Brighten up a living room with accents of Pantone 16-6340 Classic Green
Bring the outdoors in with a vibrant green half-wall in the living room and matching accessories in a similar hue. “Classic Green is a lively color that reminds us of freshly-cut grass and evokes the same invigorating feeling – perfect for an airy, contemporary space,” says Rebecca. “Balance these bold tones with a soothing grey sofa, modern black accents, and brass finishes for an elegant touch.”
