How To Decorate Your Home With Green
Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up, and what better way for us to celebrate than with a holiday inspired blog post? And maybe a Guinness or two! With green being the color of the month, we wanted to showcase 10 of our favorite emerald colored spaces that make up the real gold at the end of the rainbow! Scroll down to get inspired and shop the green looks!
Green is such a bold and rich color that most homeowners tend to shy away from. However, when mixed with the right neutrals and used in the perfect proportion, it can become an unforgettable space to live in! For instance, this kitchen’s bohemian modern design is accomplished through the abundance of botanical elements, rustic open shelving, and a balanced stripe of color. The added glossy texture of the mosaic tile is simply the cherry on top of this delicious pistachio ice cream sundae!
Studio McGee not only used one bold color, but two in this vibrant living room! The emerald and navy combination is a match made in design heaven in this moody and romantic atmosphere. If your space has an abundance of natural light, then you can incorporate more dark elements, like in this room. You can see that clean and modern lines were used so as to not take away from the main theme that is the dramatic color.
Add huge impact to a small bathroom by painting your freestanding bathtub a bright green. The use of the contrasting black and white cement tile with the pop of color creates a minimal yet modern feel.
Banana leaf prints are taking over homes left and right. The large scale tropical pattern enhances spaces and pairs well with complementary colors to achieve an eclectic design, like in this bedroom. The playful and feminine vibe is brought out by the bright pink pom pom pillows, the curvy brass wall scone, and delicate flowers. All of these tiny details contrast perfectly with the wallcovering.
There’s so much small scale pattern going on in this glamorous powder bath! For those of you who do not want to fully commit to green, go with a small accent piece like this malachite vanity mirror. With just the right amount of color, the main features of the space, such as the polka dot wallpaper and brass console sink, will be able to shine!
Glossy green is an up and coming kitchen trend of 2018. The glossy surface alludes to a cleaner more polished looking kitchen for those of you who are constantly cooking up a storm! Paint your cabinets in Benjamin Moore’s Green Bay to make a statement and spice up your kitchen! To add even more character, pair this hue with brass hardware and a complementary vintage runner.
Sometimes emerald green can be subtle, like in this mid century modern kitchen. The bold color has been toned down a notch by having a darker area rug and warm wood table to harmonize the richness of colors and textures. These vintage spindle back dining chairs are the perfect addition to the structured lines of the planked flooring and the subway tile.
We’re pulling back the curtain to reveal the unexpected pop of emerald in this elegant dining room. The rich velvet texture of the green curtain panels add sophistication to this coastal space. The window treatments contrast seamlessly with this rustic beaded chandelier and charcoal gray paint. Gray and green has never looked so good together!
This large southwestern style area rug gives this narrow space some structure and depth against the overall bright white elements. A Palm Springs-retro vibe is achieved by hanging unique vintage artwork and using modern dining chairs. Overall, the rug works in perfect harmony with these elements to create a dine-in oasis!
We can’t forget to shine some light on these green and brass pendants! These can work above a neutral kitchen island or a black and white themed dining area to add an industrial flare. This earthy green tone would definitely get me in the mood to cook and eat!
So, there you have it! I hope this guide to green has gotten you excited for St. Patrick’s Day and that you have been struck with interior “greenspiration”!
