Decorating A Green Room

Green and earthy tones are found in abundance in a lot of houses nowadays. There is something very comforting about these colours and that feeling is exactly what you need when you’re at home. In this article, we will be focusing on the colour green in your home. Incorporating this colour into your life can be very helpful for your physical and mental health. More importantly, green is a great colour and can make any room look inviting. So, create a room that embraces the colour green and enjoy the calming feeling that comes along with it.

How To Make A Green Room?

There are various ways you can incorporate green in your home. But it is important to remember the colours that are already in the room which include the colour of the furniture, walls, flooring, etc. Furthermore, you need to take into consideration the kind of look you are going for. Whether it is a vintage look, rustic, flowery or modern look, it will make a huge difference to the way you use the colour green in each situation. We always recommend going for a pop of green in the room contrasted with cool tones, neutrals or browns and beige.

Green Walls and Tiles

If you’re touching up your bedroom, study or living room, painting one wall green will instantly change the look of the room. Bottle green or dark green are great shades that can really enhance the room and provide a great vibe for your furniture and decoration pieces. Green walls in the living room can be the perfect background for wall art, decorative display plates, and white or brown furniture pieces. If you are planning to paint all the walls green, go for a shade such as olive green and let the decor in the room be of a complementary colour.

Green tiles are a great idea for an art deco-style bathroom. Themed bathrooms are a popular trend. If you have a bathroom that gets a lot of natural light, then green tiles are the way to go. The natural light will highlight the green tiles making the bathroom look more lively and soothing to the eyes. 

Sage Green Room Decor

There is a lot you can do when it comes to decorating your dining room. Light-coloured walls can be paired with some green curtains and table cloth or vice versa. On the other hand, light or dark green shades will sit perfectly well with a bright background as well. Moreover, if you have a wooden dining table set, there is no better colour to pair it with than green. Add a vase and a few flowers in the middle of the table. 

Pastel green is also a great way to add a bit of green to the room. If you have a bit of a pastel moment going on in your dining room, pair pastel greens with either blue or pink pastels. 

Vibrant Kitchen Cabinets

Green kitchens are a sought-after trend in the interior design world. Everything about this trend is pretty. Instead of the same old white or brown coloured cabinets, designers are going for more vibrant colours such as green apple or sage paired with white kitchen tops. Some wooden kitchen accessories, brass or black metal handles and fixtures are all you need to make your kitchen look like it’s right out of a magazine.

Sleep in the Flower Fields

You can transform your bedroom into a field of flowers with just a few products. Light shades of green can be paired with vibrant flower designs. The bright colours together will look lively and make your bedroom look inviting. Blush pink quilts with green pillow covers or white bed sheets with an artsy green backdrop to the bed; You can play with these colour combinations any way you want. Signature furniture pieces such as a green wooden cabinet or side table can add that extra oomph to the whole green theme.

Decorating A Green Room

If you’re not a fan of the main rooms in your house being green-themed or if you just want more green rooms around the house, make use of the extra rooms in the house. The study room, home office, yoga room or even the entryway to the house can be decorated green. Go for a cozy and grand look for the work or study rooms pairing dark wooden furniture with dark green cushions and a green office chair. Other than dark green you can go for a pistachio green to make it nice and bright. 

Entryways have to be welcoming and that is why they need to be decorated accordingly. Green wallpaper is a great way to brighten up the area and make it pop. If you don’t want to commit to wallpaper, house plants are also a great choice for decoration. The same goes for a yoga room if you have one. House plants can really add that touch of green to just about any room and they are naturally beautiful so you don’t really have to do much. 

What Colours Go With Green Interior Design?

When we say green rooms, you don’t have to decorate the entire room in one colour. We recommend mixing in some other colours to make the green pop. 

Analogous Colours

This simply refers to the colours that fall next to each other on the colour spectrum. Blue and green are cool-toned analogous colours. So, it is safe to say that this combination of colours will almost always look great. You can play around with different shades for different rooms. Bright colours work best for the living room and kitchen area. On the other hand, you can go for darker shades in the bedroom and dining room or you can have a combination of light and dark.

Pink and Green

There is a reason why flower fields look so pretty, especially if the flowers are different shades of pink and red. The combination of cool-toned colours and warm-toned colours is an absolute classic. While green and pink are a great colour contrast, together they can be a little overwhelming if you don’t find the right balance. Magenta and dark green look beautiful, but if you dress the whole room in these colours without any variations in the shades then it will end up looking unpleasant. Darker pink shades grab a lot of attention, so use them sparsely and couple them with different shades of green to keep things interesting.

Yellow and Green

Recreate the feeling of being in a meadow by using this colour combination in your dining area or on the patio. Yellow and green can easily light up the room and if you are using this colour combination in a room that gets a lot of natural light, you are set. There is nothing more you have to do. This colour combination speaks for itself.

Go Neutral

White or black looks great with green. While white and green give off a more elegant feel, black and green can look very regal. You can never go wrong with this combination in any room in the house. Pair it with some brass or gold decorative pieces such as a vase or a table with a metal frame. You can also use all three colours and find some geometric patterns to place around the room to make it look sharp and modern.

Incorporating the Colour Green In Your Home

There are no hard and fast rules as to how you should be adopting the colour green in your home. The only thing you need to keep in mind is the amount of emphasis you want to place on this colour. Green interiors call for a huge amount of green elements to be incorporated into the interiors.
