There’s nothing new about our love of green for your interiors, from the zingy foliage green that Pantone called its “colour of the year” to deeper, jewel-like tones that are sumptuous and perfect for the change of season. Our focus turns to the latter, so think emerald green, olive green and forest green shades that provide the perfect backdrop for brass, copper or nickel accessories.
Let’s take a look at our collection for the best pieces to capture this season’s hot new trend, and you can rest assured that with a few updates, it will continue to look relevant for years to come.
A great way of introducing this colour into your home is by adding striking wallpaper to one of your walls. Accentuate with a golden wall lamp to create ambience and mood.

If you’re wondering how to match this ubiquitous colour, we suggest adding it to deep blues, terracotta or mustard yellow schemes. Opting for jewel tones like emerald, teal or amethyst will also work wonders with deep green. Don’t forget to accessorise with coloured glass, throws and statement lighting.

You might also want to think about combining these rich deep green hues with natural materials like wood, or even, tan leather luxury gifts. Gubi’s Adnet Circulaire Mirror features a bold leather strap that supports the large round mirror, creating an equestrian feel in your home.

If you don’t want to go all out on green furniture, think of smaller and more introvert ways to add this colour. For example, introduce small ottomans, add glassware to your collection or scatter cushions to your sofa for added cosiness and comfort.

An easy and effective way of adding a little green into your home is through your choice of home accessories. We suggest using a golden, monochrome or marble tray to display a collection of trinkets in varying hues of green.

Take a seat
A compromise between going all out and keeping it minimal when introducing colour is by thinking about your seating arrangement. Think about mixing and matching chairs in your dining room for a more ‘unintentional’ feel or keep the same style throughout for a more elegant look. Don’t forget to throw in a couple of lounge chairs in your living room!
