3 Color Tips – Introducing Green into the Living Room

With the ongoing love of botanicals and nature-inspired interiors, green is one of the trendiest colors this season, and rightly so. Victoria Atkin, from UK brand Atkin and Thyme, shares three design tips on how to introduce the green color crush into the home interior.


  • Pick the Perfect Spot
    “Add a spot of green to areas where it can best reflect the tones of Mother Nature, such as bay windows. It will draw the eye while seamlessly linking the indoors with the outdoors. Alternatively, add it to windowless rooms such as bathrooms to lighten and expand the space.”
  • Pick Purposefully
    “Use the color with purpose. Green is in its element when placed in bright south-facing rooms; effortlessly creating an ethereal look. When adding it to a darker, north-facing room or those with a blueish hue, opt for warmer tones with complementary contrasting colors, such as deep purples, to create a sophisticated feel.”
  • Small Statements
    “If you’re not ready to paint the walls or invest in a larger piece, try a smaller statement such as an emerald green footstool. Complement this rich jewel hue and add a touch of luxury with plush velvet and metallics.”
