Our colour of the month for March 2020, green is a popular choice in living rooms, bedrooms and dining rooms alike. This coveted colour has the power to take on a range of different qualities depending on the look you go for.
Associated with nature, new life and health, green can give your interior a refreshing update that rejuvenates the senses. In more muted shades like sage it can feel safe and soothing, but on the vibrant end of the spectrum, you’ll find zesty, motivating tones that are just perfect for energetic souls. It’s all about how you want your space to feel.
From eternally-popular emerald to mellow mint, there’s a hue for every home. But if you’re unsure how to give your interior the verdant touch, read on for our top tips and ideas on styling the colour green.
Top Tips for a Green Interior
- Think about the natural light available in your space and how best to work with it
- Go back to your roots with greenery in the form of real or artificial plants
- Use muted greens as an alternative to neutrals
- Create a tonal look with throws, cushions and lampshades in varying hues
- Give your green décor a flash of warmth with metallic accents
Green in the Bedroom
More people are looking for green bedroom ideas now than ever before, which proves the colour’s restful and relaxing attributes – particularly in dark green. From feature walls to furnishings, the deepest shades of forest and army green create a cosy feel that’s just perfect for a place you need to unwind in.
Green textiles will bring welcome softness to your bedroom, so load up on cushions and throws for maximum comfort. Fully upholstered in lush green velvet, the Raul Bed Frame introduces an immediate pop of colour that’s enough to make a statement in more pared-back spaces.
Looking for a little less commitment? Try a green accent chair instead, like the Melina Accent chair – not only does it lend another layer of colour, it’s also ideal for keeping hold of those clothes that you’re not quite ready to put away yet!

Green in the Living Room
If for you, the living room is a place for entertaining and a place to be showed off, then going down the luxurious route with the Orla Kiely Mimosa Sofa in rich green velvet could be the way to go.
Or if you like to feel energised and clear-minded during your downtime, be sure to opt for brighter tones like in the Ercol Cosenza Sofa, which is cosy yet crisp.
Blessed with a large, open space? Then a refreshing scheme with softer shades of green will help make the most of it. Try an oversized area rug with a pattern, like the Knox Rug. A stylish alternative to block colourways, its white Aztec design remains light and airy, while the green element offsets any starkness and helps to centre the room.
