Colour has the power to instantly convey messages and evoke emotions. Marketing teams use colour to influence our feelings and attitudes towards brands and products. In interior design, you can also use colour psychology to influence the ambiance of your home.
Green is a versatile colour. It’s inviting and brings to mind images of health, freshness, serenity and nature. In general, using green brings feelings of peace, calm and serenity to a room. A soft green is perfect for a child’s room as it creates a sense of security. I recommend Dulux Enchanted Quarter.
Emerald green also has associations with refinement, elegance and luxury. The stunning Bird of Paradise wallpaper by Signature Prints would be a perfect way to bring some luxury to a formal living room or even a walk-in wardrobe.
Incorporating green into interiors is also a great trick for urban dwellers lacking in garden space. Given all the associations green has with the outdoors, even just seeing this fresh hue is enough to encourage a greater connection to nature. Personally, I know my custom made green sofa really brings my apartment alive.
So take inspiration from these vibrant green spaces and my recommendations for statement pieces that will make your friends green with envy. My absolute favourite being ECC’s USM entertainment unit.
