We have been harping on about how homeowners are veering towards all things ‘eco-friendly and sustainable’ in the last few years. It is barely a surprise then that a shade of green is one of the most sought-after colors among homeowners and designers alike.
Olive green is a particularly interesting shade of green and one that is versatile, offering a wide range of hues and tints. These many shades of olive green allow you to try out different themes and styles in your home with ease. By nature, darker shades of olive green are sophisticated in visual appeal while the lighter shades feel cozy and earthen. Depending on the theme of the room, you can choose from these different hues and get started with a smart and easy home makeover.
Paint experts share their trade tricks for working this bang-on-trend shade.
This combo of green walls and rich-brown furniture looks confident yet classic. Paint the skirting in the same tone as the walls to score extra style points. Start in the bedroom, where olive green can help to create a serene environment,’ says Charlotte Cosby, head of creative at Farrow & Ball. ‘It’s also suited to rooms that overlook nature. The colors from the great outdoors will further enhance the green tones of the walls and create a relaxing outdoor feel in your home.’
