1. Forest green wallpaper

This bedroom set up shows off the Forest Green decor trend beautifully. The busy print of the Glasshouse wallpaper (£65 per roll, Graham & Brown) is ideal for a feature wall. When paired with the Glasshouse matt emulsion (£42 per 2.5ltrs, Graham & Brown), it gives a real woodland effect and can make your space appear bigger. If you’re looking for a similar light, try the Där Tower ceiling pendant (£58.49, Lighting Direct). For similar bedlinen, try the Linen bedding bundle in Clay (£179 for a double, Bedfolk), and try Loaf for similar velvet cushions.

You can also keep a forest green colour light by keeping the background predominantly white and adding in a warm neutral with gentle pink undertone. Colours that go with forest green include pale pink blush tones like Farrow & Ball’s Setting Plaster (£56 per 2.5ltrs). This Flora Vintage Tropical wallpaper in white is £66 per 7m roll from Bobbi Beck. For a similar tasseled pendant light, try the Naya pendant light in white macrame, £142 from Maisons du Monde.
