Deep forest green is the perfect autumnal hue, making any room feel cosy and enveloping as the weather turns colder. This colour works all year round, though, as it will give a living room a cool and shady feel in the summer months.
Whether you want a living room that's rustic or glamorous, this colour exudes quiet confidence. Bring it to life with both warm and pale woods, and leathers that have an orangey undertone for a pairing that's direct from nature.
Add depth to this scheme with walls, fabrics and accessories in deep forest green. Sumptuous textures, like leather and velvet, will keep things cosy.

Mix in a few unusual pieces that will add a quirky touch to your scheme. This office-style cabinet would work well as a side table in a living room.
