From dusty moss and zesty lime to vibrant emerald and delicate sage, green enriches our homes with one of nature’s favourite hues.

With the ability to bring the outside in, using the colour green is one of the best ways to create a welcoming space. We’ve rounded up ideas for introducing this colour in different spaces of your home.

Decorating with houseplants

Embrace nature and introduce different shades of green with the addition of houseplants. There are so many varieties to choose from, including pet and child-friendly plants, that easily brighten up corners of your home.

Plants are great for adding interest to bookcases, sideboards, dressers and desks but also have mood-boosting health benefits and are known to reduce stress. Create a bold biophilic statement and group together several different species for an urban jungle feel that pairs beautifully with oak furniture. Find more inspiration in our guide to decorating with plants.

Accessorise with green

Accessories are the perfect finishing touch and a simple way to tie a look together. Choose different shades of green to complement your scheme and use details such as throws, cushions, art and lighting to create a polished aesthetic.

In this bedroom, the sage accent wall adds a soothing touch, while the natural oak furniture, delicate pink bedding and darker green accessories create a stylish sleep space.

Go for a bold statement

Zesty brights are a playful choice, especially if you want to make a statement. In this modern bedroom, fitted cupboards and wardrobes have been given a joyful lick of vibrant green paint that really packs a punch. Accessories in slightly darker tones have been used to great effect to offset the brightness.

If you favour bold interiors, green-toned wallpaper is a contemporary way to introduce patterns. Leafy motifs, jungle patterns, pineapples, or even damask, are popular green-hued designs, with gold tones often paired with these prints.

On the walls

For those wishing to create a calm and restful space, why not try darker green on the walls? This modern shade looks perfect teamed with crisp white and natural details such as oak furniture, rattan accessories and wool rugs and throws.

If you’re wary of painting your walls anything but neutral, choose a pale green to add a subtle hint of colour that doesn’t overpower the space. Light sage greens are always a good option as they pair easily with other colours and add just the right amount of interest to your walls.

Maximalist green decor

While not for everyone, maximalist decor really brings personality into the different spaces of your home. In this vibrant living room, mint green walls are the backdrop for this eclectic decor that combines different shades of green, along with bright artwork and a variety of different textures and patterns.
