Let’s talk about green colour schemes for the perfect green living room

It seems country life cultivates an affinity with green living rooms! Since we moved, I’ve become obsessed with home decor and have found myself pinning so many living room ideas to my Pinterest boards. Seriously, my Pinterest obsession is pretty extreme at the moment!

More than anything, I’m pinning colourful home decor ideas, which is a new direction for me because I’ve always been a fan of neutral tones. And that’s where green living room ideas come in. There is something about a dash of colour like a green sofa or even simply with some green accessories or plants that is really appealing. With a little one who loves colour and the fact we live in the countryside, I think it’s only natural (haha) that I’ve moved away from that white aesthetic and that green has crept in more and more to my mood boards – and I like it!

Why Choose a Green Living Room Colour Scheme?

Green is such a versatile colour for home decor. It’s no longer limited to those  avocado coloured bathroom suites because now we have gorgeous greens from muted sage tones to rich jewel tones of jade and teal. Tones of green can switch any space from relaxing, to elegant, to fun. Dulux have just announced Tranquil Dawn, a soft and highly versatile green as  their 2020 Colour of the Year, whilst Graham & Brown have announced Adeline -a deep rich bottle green  as their colour of 2020 – so we’ll be seeing a whole lot more green in home decor!

One of the great things I’m loving is that green works with every other colour – whether you marry similar muted tones, or pair with bolder complementary shades like rich blues, yellow golds and aubergine shades. I’m not usually into pink, I have to say, but I love the way the pink works so well with green, too.

So, for this post, I’m going to take you through some of my current favourite ways to decorate your living room with green –  as well as some great green home accessories and homeware that work well with green.

There will be more of these interiors posts – the obsession is real!


Gold Yellow with green Living Rooms

There’s something really calming about green with gold and yellow tones. The warmth that yellow tones bring really complement the earthy vibe that green brings.

Blue with Green Living Rooms

Green and blue can create a really dramatic, but cosy look. Pairing navy blue walls as a backdrop for rich green furniture and accessories is a really sophisticated way to go. Adding in pops of yellow and deep purples and aubergine shades helps to break up the colours for that stylish, elegant vibe.

Rich green and blue tones Greens and blues work well together, with elements of yellow or gold to add interest and elegance.

Green and grey is a great next step from the grey and white theme. Pewter and silver give a different and interesting take on the green and grey living room theme.

Metallic shades work really well with green and stacked mixed metals look really strikingly stylish, for a classic look, but with an elegant modern twist.

Layering different shades of green against a green backdrop wall works fabulously with wooden furniture. I love the look with the gold details on the wood and the accessories.


GREEN WITH WOOD AND BROWN NEUTRAL TONE living rooms

As I’ve delved deeper, I’ve found that a green and brown living room looks so much better than it sounds! Mixing the earthiness of green with wood in different forms adds so much warmth and depth. Mixing up the tones of wood with the tones of green you can create so many different looks, from dark and dramatic, to light and natural.

GREEN WITH PINK Living Rooms

Green and pink isn’t something I would have considered before, but it really works for a softer look without being sickly sweet. There’s so much flexibility when you use complementary tones – a deeper berry pink with a richer green, or a sage green with a blush pink.

GREEN WITH Bold Artwork Living Rooms

 

Sometimes a bold piece of original artwork is all it takes to make your green decor pop! One piece can change the whole look and feel of a room. I’ve been following artist Johanna Rossi on Instagram for a long time and love how versatile the bold colours in her artwork are.

Green home ACCESSORIES

If you aren’t ready for all out green, then adding green accessories to the home works really well. Because we live in the country,  I’ve brought that into B’s room for a cohesive touch with green and wooden accessories in his bedroom.

Home accessories, like a green focal chair or a green wall planter or piece of art make a more understated impact. But, there is nothing that will bring warmth and life to any room more than simply adding plants!

So, that’s my first round up of ideas and inspiration for your green living room. I have loads more home content coming up, with inspiration and the things we are doing in our little house!

Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see more of and don’t forget to check out my Pinterest boards for more style inspiration, as I’m on there everyday!

    Green is my favourite colour, but I've never thought about working into my home. I really like the look of the Navy Blue and green palette. My bedroom needs decorating so I'll pin this for inspiration!
