Green Must Be Seen

Sourced from Pinterest

There has been a shift in the design industry where elements of nature are strongly being suggested to dress our homes. Colours such as forest green, exposed timber and rich textures are used within interiors as it brings an essence of wellness and calmness to our busy lifestyles.

Introducing green to your interior palette can promote a sense of relaxation, balance and creativity. Teaming your focal green with added live greenery brings serenity to a room and introduces several hues of green to create interest visually and flow to the space. It is important to contrast bold colours, in this particular case the white walls and floor enhances the principle green and sits perfectly against the ornate dark timber bed frame. The room is balanced with raw elements and the natural greens work well for both males and females. Note: Simplicity is key when exploring trends of wellness and nature within interiors.

Reflecting Hamptons

Boasting a mix of European and American furniture, this interior above reflects the Hamptons Style, with a touch of Australiana. It is typical of this design to have a neutral palette with pops of colour, and warm timber elements that bring a relaxed but classic feel.

Characteristically, the Hamptons style works well by the sea or in a country home. If wanting to bring this look into a beach home, simply replace the darker décor accent pieces with hints of ocean Blues in say your cushions or throws, add White woven baskets and keep the iconic neutral surrounding pallet. As displayed in the image above, they have gone for a more rustic country look and added in rattan armchairs, a grand painting of a Hound above the fireplace and antlers. This is an extremely popular theme when it comes to interiors that never seems to date, it is truly a classic.
