Deep Green Interiors

Deep and dark greens make an elegant and sophisticated feel. Farrow and Ball’s Studio Green saw a huge rise in popularity in 2017. It’s one of those colours that delivers fantastic shading and tonal ranges in the light – totally worth the investment. It looks fantastic pared with white, and gold accents bring our its richness.

Dark green in a bedroom create a space in which to hide away from the stresses of the day. Used with low lighting, a good paint reveals shades and tones that are relaxing.

Dark greens also look great with leather and wood – green and brown just works so naturally together.

Blue Green

We’re not talking turquoise or even teal really, these are the true, non-arguably greens with a hint of blue. They’re more playful and a bit more vibrant that green alone, so lend themselves to different uses. Interior designers have been using blue greens to create fresh and inviting spaces and now we’re doing the same.

Blue-greens arguably feel fresher and with less yellow pigment, work better with more neutral colours, whereas greens usually work well with warmer tones.

Grey greens are less vibrant and less saturated, making them peaceful and non-threatening. They can be subtle and cooling feel quite masculine. Grey greens can work well with other more vivid colours too as they’re not shouting for too much attention themselves. They sit well with colour cool colours like off-blacks and greys, but also create interesting contrasts with dusky pinks and boyish blues. Blue and green do in fact work very well together, if the right shades and tones are selected.
