Balance a palette of leafy colours with delicate floral designs and vintage butterfly prints

 Nature Inspired Spring Green Dining Room 2

 

Love this dining room

  • Contemporary and traditional elements work in perfect harmony in this space. Try combining a rustic table with Scandi-style chairs.
  • Define your dining area with a statement rug. A grass-green colour complements the nature-inspired look.
  • Introduce prints featuring flora and fauna with curtains and cushion covers – designs on fabric soften the impact.
  • Don’t be afraid of mixing lots of green shades – just use plenty of foliage to tie the look together.

Good Idea

A sculptural chandelier and baroque-style mirror add a beautifully decorative touch to a dining room.

 

Styling Tips

Just like yellow, citrus greens work best in sunny locations. In darker rooms, stick to serene shades of olive or pistachio, which will suit a wide range of locations.

 Design an elegant display by combining a statement vase, a botanical print and a modern candlestick. Position an empty picture frame behind them for an arty effect.

Trend Watch

Classic Look
