Colour trend: Summer green

July 21, 2023

Create a space for nature within your home with one of this season’s hottest shades – summer green. It lends itself perfectly to every room, but we like it best in bedrooms, living rooms, and perhaps most controversially in bathrooms in a throwback to the green bathrooms of the 1970s!

Good Homes has rounded up the best styling, decorating and accessories using summer green for you to explore, read on for plenty of inspiration…
