Colour Inspiration: How to use green paint in your home
Last week we focused on how and where to use the colour red in your homes. This week we are focusing on the colour of nature. Our green paint ideas for living spaces, bedrooms, hallways and bathrooms will come in handy when you are looking to introduce some green into your homes.
With this blog series I want to convince everyone not to be afraid of adding some colour to their homes. Experiment with different tones and colours as it is easy enough to rectify them experiments if you don't quite like them.
Green is a calming and strong choice for a living room as it provides a gentle statement for your space. There are a number of ways you can introduce green to your living room but my two suggestions would be combining teal green with tobacco for a classic look or going for a forest green.
Deep teal green is a flexible choice. It can make a living room feel cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. Forest green is best for bright spaces as it helps dial down the glare and can create a mellow environment.
Breath new life into the place you rest your head of an evening with a green bedroom. If you want to create a luxurious bedroom then you can't go wrong with an emerald green with touches of gold.
Using green paint in hallways can add energy to a space as well as creating a serene feel at the same time. Personally, I would suggest pairing green walls with a white ceiling and dark flooring. This is a subtle way of introducing green to your hallways without overdoing it.
Green is a great choice for bathrooms due to its association with rejuvenation. A rich, earthy green is perfect in bathrooms and can result in a chic, luxurious and calming place to get ready each morning.
