Spring is around the corner, and so is St. Patrick’s Day, do we really need another excuse to talk about green interiors?! We’re ready for the sunshine, cool breeze and the interiors to match! Spring and flowers go together hand-in-hand, and so does green and brass!
Have you ever walked into a yellow room and felt instantly happy? Or a red room and felt passion? Colours have the ability to affect our moods, with green emitting balance and harmony. Green has a strong association with nature; therefore, it’s said that the colour rejuvenates, radiates peace and energises us. What does the colour of your interiors say about you? In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re going to look at ways in which you can incorporate a touch of green into your interiors to give your décor a refresh!
Make A Statement
Wallpaper is a great way to make a bold statement in your interior, with a number of stunning patterns and prints to choose from. Wallpaper has the ability to transform your room completely, and there are various ways you can decorate with it. From covering all your walls in a print or opting for a statement accent wall, a pattern is a perfect way to add character.

Add A Splash Of Emerald Green
There are numerous different shades of green and depending on your interior style will determine the shades of green you opt for. Emerald green is a luxurious tone which adds elegance and depth to any space. It’s a tone which can be overpowering, so incorporate splashes of the rich colour, rather than have the colour cover your walls, to energise your interior.Brooklyn Cone Wall Light – 7 Inch – Brass, £79, by Industville (Image supplied by @Archer.t.j)
For a splash of the tone add cushions, chairs or even a statement sofa to become the focal point. Brass lights pair perfectly with the rich tone as they add a contemporary chic twist.Brooklyn Dome Pendant – 13 Inch – Pewter & Copper, £99, by Industville (Image supplied by @marks_and_rowe_interiors)
Go Mad With Metallics
Adding a touch of metallics in our interiors adds luxury and glamour, whether you opt for brass or gold. Brass is a warmly toned metal which works best with bold blocks of colour rather than warmer colours. When brass is paired with green, they add elegance to any interior.

Bring The Outdoors In
As we’ve mentioned, the colour green reminds us of nature and the outdoors, so what better way to add a glimmer of green than with house plants? Plants are a great way to add a touch of green into your interior, but there are also a number of other benefits. Such as increasing the amount of oxygen in the room and adding freshness. Incorporating plants bring a room to life and make a room feel brighter, not only adding a therapeutic value but also bringing a calming effect.Sleek Edison Wall Light – Pewter, £29, by Industville (Image supplied by @lets.stay.at.home)
