Getting inspired by nature is the ideal way to create a truly revitalising home space. Start here with the colour green: from subtle seafoam to bright limes, the versatility of this colour means it carries with it a feeling of calm. Whether this be in the colours of your walls or floors or through accentuating your space with accessories, soft furnishings or houseplants, here’s how to transform your home into a natural paradise.
When going green, there’s actually a myriad of different shades and tones to choose from, but keep your palette small and subtle to prevent things from turning sickly. Make sure you’re selecting colours that are actually found in nature, steering clear of chemical neon. Before you begin, get clued up on decorating with green.
We’ve nominated earthy greens, pairing them with a monochrome geometric pattern that makes the bed linen pop, providing the link between the rich olive of the sheets and the mid-tone grey of the painted timbers which make up our Arlette bed. These soft textile details do really create a dreamy feel that’s ideal for the place you lay your head.
With this look, it’s unsurprising that we’re centring the concept around botany trends (it is a greenhouse, after all…). Creating a home for houseplants is about more than just bringing the outdoors in (though this is a huge ethos of the trend) – styling your houseplants in unique and interesting ways will be a source of endless delight. For evergreen freshness, dangle some plants above and around your bed, letting them swing freely and frame a statement piece like our Original Rustic bedside table. The inclusion of rustic oak furniture helps the look retain an underlying warmth that softens walls, floors and, in this case, corners thanks to its honey-coloured finish.
Greenhouse Living Room
Lighting is really key to bringing the outdoors in. Add a scatter of houseplants to create an indoor environment that’ll make your house guests green with envy; an oxygen-rich environment flooded with natural light will be hugely beneficial to your physical and mental health.
This signature indoor-outdoor feel is perfect for Summer: bring exterior touches into your interiors with details such as upcycled gutter pipes used as wall-mounted hanging plant holders.
Inject a bit of New York loft style into your home by experimenting with textures: the marriage of industrial metal and solid oak we see in our Brooklyn range has utilitarian undertones thanks to its use of hard materials, however, characterful weather-worn plant pots add that much-needed sprouting of life. This coffee table, in particular, is a real gem for those needing extra storage space while not wanting to compromise on style.
Greenhouse Dining Room
Dining rooms don’t have to be dull. Create an informal, open dining experience that harks back to alfresco eating with the dining furniture from our Brooklyn range. In this collection, our dining sets can be found with either six chic bistro chairs or with two chairs and two benches, giving you the opportunity to surprise and delight guests with your uber-relaxed family dining arrangement.
Our strictly cool green palette is pleasantly disrupted with the help of our Arlette console table; its clean and modern painted finish adds brightness and variety to your design scheme. It’s also an ideal spot to allow your houseplants to flourish.
The greenhouse trend really is paradisiacal. See the effect of incorporating this theme into your home study: confident furniture and plenty of houseplants creates a private oasis, an ultimate respite from the chaos of a family home.
