Re-emergence of Green
Green is one of those polarising colours that definitely doesn’t tickle every interior enthusiast’s fancy. Since its re-emergence in 2013 with “Emerald” crowned Pantone’s colour of the year and again with the top spot going to “Greenery” in 2017, the use of green in interior design has certainly increased in popularity.
A sense of harmony
If you want to delve a little deeper, when it comes to the psychological properties of Emerald Green it’s reported that the colour promotes balance, harmony and the feeling of being connected to nature. While Greenery is a refreshing and revitalizing shade, symbolic of new beginnings. And if that doesn’t appeal to your holistic side, green communicates luxury and elegance, as in the jewel (emerald).
Accessorise with green
Be aware if you are using greens with blue undertones in a room that receives little natural light it may make the room feel a little cold. If a green paint scheme feels a little too risky for you, adding plants or a few green cushions and accessories can produce a similar result without the commitment.
Sense of luxury
Are there any rooms in the house that particularly lend themselves to the regal tones of Emerald Green? Any room in which you would like to create an atmosphere of sophistication, luxury or elegance, and that doesn’t mean you need to own a castle! If you have a library or a reading nook, green paint or wall paper creates a sense of calm and cosiness.
