A green scheme can often be regarded as “cold”. This is true if the colour has a hint of grey or blue.
For a warmer, richer feel, choose a tone of green which has a hint of brown or yellow such as olive or khaki.
An olive green represents the traditional colour of peace.
These 3D models have been used to develop a scheme for a home-study-cum-spare-bedroom.
A botanical print wallpaper has been applied to the facing wall whilst the remaining three have been painted with a Neptune Home Olive Green.
Dark wood, natural fibre floor covering, printed fabrics, and house plants have been added to energise this green scheme.
The next step is to layer this scheme with rugs, blinds, art, and mirrors.
Olive green works well with dark wood, brass, rattan, flagstones, exposed brickwork, oak beams, and a natural fibre, or wood block flooring.
Pair with tactile textures such as corduroy, velvet, suede, leather, and brushed linen.
The addition of a rattan chair adds a contemporary vibe.
Layer with green house plants and botanical patterns on wallpaper and/or fabrics.
Cosy up even more by adding a sumptuous olive green curtain wall.
This final image is a perfect example of how natural materials and lush textiles create a warm green on-trend room.
