Green is a popular colour for interior walls due to its versatility and the positive, natural vibes it gives off. This means it’s no surprise that as we head into the spring of 2021, many of us are opting to spread these hues throughout our homes.

There are many different interior styles that can successfully incorporate the colour green, so we’ve put together some creative decorating ideas to inspire your next project.

Bring a layer of excitement to your living room by using green to create a nature-inspired feature wall. We love the floral-inspired above that has used patterned wallpaper to bring beauty and immense detail to the space.

Rocking the green vibe doesn’t have to mean statement dark colours, it is equally appealing in pastel format. We love this gorgeous set up with plenty of natural light and greenery.

Mix up the pastel vibe by combining with another colour on alternate walls. The beauty of this shade is that it’s so versatile, especially in its pastel form so there are plenty of combinations that will work beautifully.

One colour that always look wonderful with green is pink. Whether you mix up the wall combinations or add pink accessories to a green colour scheme, it always works.

Panelling has grown in popularity over the last couple of years, and we think it adds stunning detail to this bedroom. The green pastel hues blend in seamlessly making the panelling pop in this bedroom set up.

All about the accessories

Overhauling your interiors can seem quite drastic on the basis of a trend, but adding a few accessories is a much easier feat. We love the uplifting impact the green cushions, rug and plant life has on this setup. It’s easily achievable but no less mesmerising than the paint jobs we’ve already showcased.
