Green is so relaxing and when paired with complementary colours, will create a warm and inviting environment in any room. Now is the perfect time to give this on-trend colour a go and brighten your home with some bold accents.

Ranging from dark and dramatic to pale and interesting, green is a versatile shade. A colour that is in abundance in the natural world, it is so easy to bring a touch of this beautiful hue into your home.

Look for fern and floral prints to wake up any room. Printed wallpaper in subtle tones of green and white will complement neutral fittings or furniture, or highlight a traditional feature in the room, creating a wonderful mix of the old and the new.

Choosing a green colour scheme in the kitchen or bathroom will make the most of this functional space. Jade or pale green kitchen units will bring a touch of spring style to the room all year round and will look beautifully understated when teamed with accents of white. Mint tiles in the bathroom will go with both modern and traditional schemes and look striking against cold and stark fittings.
