Feeling depressed that summer is over and we’re in the midst of an autumnal August? We say embrace the crazy monsoon style rain, rejoice that it’s making our gardens lush and verdant (there’s always a bright side, right?) and bring those gorgeous greens into your home.
Ever since Pantone made ‘Greenery’ – a fresh and zesty yellowy green – their colour of the year, its embedded itself in our home style consciousness – and not just the colour either, but the motif of what ‘green’ represents. Just look at instagrams obsession with botanicals to see that nature and the outside world are now synonymous with interior style. And the good news is, they’re set to stay rooted for more than one season.
Summer’s interior colour tropical greens are making way for Autumnal ones that are suitably richer, darker and more luxurious shades. Jade and emerald feature heavily, as do outdoor inspirations of pine, myrtle (the dark green flowering plant with a bluish tinge) and hooker’s green (a shade named after the official botanical illustrator of the Royal Horticultural Society, William Hooker) Palm leaves remain a strong motif too and feature heavily on interiors accessories: think leaf printed cushions, vases, planters and table runners that all bring new meaning to the phrase ‘Forever Green’. Here are 3 green-inspired collections from some interior stores I love:
