COLOUR STUDY: SHADES OF GREEN

Happy 3 days after St. Patrick’s Day! That’s a thing, right? Ok, ok – so perhaps this post would have been more appropriate on St. Patrick’s Day but #WorkHasBeenCray lately! Nevertheless, let’s talk about the many glorious shades of Green. Green has been one of my favourite shades for a long time. For a period of time, I was actually quite obsessed with incorporating all things Green in my own home decor. For those who remember our tiny loft apartment in Walkerville (Windsor), they’ll remember my love affair with this glorious hue. I’ve since grown to appreciate it even more and use it often in various furnishings for my clients. I just love the freshness it provides to any space – whether it’s in a fabric or a living plant.

Today I’ve rounded up some of my favourite green items in both Design & Home Decor!

1. ‘Mornings Away’ Painting    2. Botanical Print Curtains    3. Enamel Warehouse Pendant    4. Agate Bookends    5. Lux Velvet Pillow    6. Easton Sofa 

And can we talk about these stunning shades of green by Benjamin Moore? Buffett Green, Salamander, Vintage Vogue and Storm Cloud Gray all provide the right amount of intensity and drama for whatever the application. All of these colours are both timeless & elegant, while offering a rich saturated quality to any space.

Here are some more notable interiors where Green rocked the space!

And if you’re looking to add some more vibrancy into your own personal style or home decor, here are three more pieces I just adore:

Do you love Green as much as I do? It truly is such a versatile colour in that every shade offers something new depending how it is used. Whether bold & dramatic or light & airy – green can transform any space. Give it a try and let me know how it goes! I promise you won’t regret it!
