HOW TO USE GREEN IN YOUR HOME
SOFT FURNISHINGS are easy and cost effective. New cushion covers in moody, muddy greens will freshen up a tired sofa while creating a sense of calm; add a textured throw or maybe an ottoman and you’ve transformed your living room in one afternoon.
HOMEWARES such as vases, decorative bowls and accessories, like picture frames, clocks and accent pieces, are also an economical change or addition to your existing interior scheme.
PLANTS are a sure-fire way to incorporate green into your home. They bring in great colour and the positive effects on wellbeing that only living plants can provide. Larger plants are best in living areas, but in bathrooms and for styling on coffee and side tables, consider succulents. They come in a range of muddy greeny tones, adding texture and interest to the room.
BIG-TICKET ITEMS such as a sofa, dining table or bed frame, are usually selected in quality “neutral” finishes. This way these larger items of furniture will date well and last a lifetime but, when you desire a change, can be easily and cost-effectively updated with accessories and soft furnishings in a wide range of different colours and finishes.
