How to Decorate with Green

Green makes me feel optimistic and refreshed. I find it's the easiest on the eyes and should be used to relax and create balance in a design. It's also a really versatile colour to decorate your home with but having incorporated into mine many times over, I’ve come away with a few observations and tricks I’d like to pass onto you…

  • The first, is to be sure to scan the natural light before selecting a green paint colour. If you’re working with limited natural light, consider going a few shades lighter on the green paint because it’ll inevitably look darker once it’s on the walls.
  • Should your light have warmer tones; reds, pinks or oranges, you’ll want to counter that in the green colour you select by choosing a cooler hue.
  • If in doubt, go for a muted shade of green paint. I really like Bone by Farrow & Ball. In general, lighter and less-saturated colours are more soothing on the eyes, you could even mix your green paint colour with a dash white paint to get a more pastel green. The lighter the colour, the larger the space will seem.
  • If you don't feel comfortable committing to painting your walls, consider installing linoleum on the floor which will give your space an instant refresh. Sinclair Till has a lovely range. I particularly like their forrest green one.
