Colour Report 2019: Colour focus on green
24 January 2019
Green is set to be big on the colour scene in 2019. Zoe Anderson from design destination W.A.Green shares her love of ‘natures colour’ in part 5 of her brilliant Colour Report.
Part five - Green is seen as the colour of nature and this has seen its popularity surge in the past few years via the introduction of botanicals and urban jungle trends. Green brings natural elements to the forefront and evokes a feeling of calm. It’s a colour of security, as people feel grounded and secure when surrounded by it.
Green symbolises growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility, referencing the clean and tranquil colours of trees, grass and springtime. It works wonders to bring the outside in. The different shades of green, from yellowish tones to olive hues and emerald shades, can bring around different feelings and this makes it a very versatile colour that can add contrast when alternate shades are used together.
The key colour from Painthouse:
Kamilla Green - A sophisticated, luxuriously rich green paint, with depth of character and a surprising warmth.
“Green is clearly a favourite at W.A.Green and both Kamilla Green and Elvis Green from Painthouse are firm favourites of mine. Green holds natural colours extremely well and makes them look contemporary - Kamilla is the perfect accompaniment for the brown and caramel colours that we are going to see introduced more in 2019.
It’s a bold choice but still extremely versatile and can be used in almost any room. Emerald greens specifically work well in small rooms with little natural light - perfect for cloakrooms. I love to match a lighter green with jewel coloured velvet curtains. For a darker shade, it can look really interesting when paired with a brighter colour such as orange or create a really contemporary look amongst a very crisp white. I adore how you can decorate an entire room with greens and have contrast, drama, richness, and balance.”
Add green naturally by introducing a mixture of real and faux plants. Nothing beats a corner of the botanical stuff!
