Green has taken the interiors world by storm over the past couple of years due to its obvious connection to nature and has a beautifully calming effect within a space. Here we take you through a journey of green and talk about what kind of green you should use as your next paint colour.
Getting the right tone:
Greens with yellow undertones feel warmer which is perfect for north or east facing rooms. Pale greens with blue undertones are cooler and work perfectly to balance the warmth you find in south and west facing rooms.
Pale green walls can really encourage peacefulness into your room. Perfect for a lounge or bedroom, a pale green will exude a relaxing feel. Combined with natural woods and earthy tones, you will never want to leave the house again.
