Get cosy by decorating with forest green

Give a living room a warm, classic look with this confident colour

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.
