Greenery has long been a favourite in the KLD HQ so we we’re pretty pleased to see the significance of this shade brought center stage again with Pantone naming it as their colour of the year for 2017.
From elaborate interior planting schemes to beautiful tones of marble, the many shades of greenery symbolise fresh starts, earthiness and of course the great outdoors.
Colour experts have also long documented the popularity of green as an interiors colour for its closeness to nature, suggesting that it is a colour we respond more positively to due to its association with all that is naturally occurring.
And it is for this reason also that many people cite green as being particularly easy to live with in terms of interior design.
And if that isn’t enough to convince you to go a little green, take a look at some of these beautiful spaces for a little inspiration…
This deep forest green covering the walls, unit, skirting, architraves and doors has a really rich and powerful impact, creating an opulent scene and the perfect background for the vibrant floral stems to really stand out.
A colour pop on joinery units is a great way to bring personality and colour to a design like this custom made storage in our Dublin Residence project.
By layering tones of green in the upholstery and using this green marble surround this is a restaurant booth becomes a slick and beautiful space.
Layering tones of greens can be so effective, especially given the variety of shades, from deep teals to light mint green and everything in between. However we also love the shade with a little blush pink. A wild card but one that works!
Combining green in interiors schemes such as the upholstery or paint can really increase the dramatic impact of planting in an interiors scheme like this stylish restaurant.
A blank canvas with lots of green accents can also be an effective way to make a space feel both colourful and interesting while still having that clean, slick appearance like this stunning kitchen design.
Paneling brings a great sense of depth and elegance to an interiors scheme and this mint green paneling with gold detailing in our Ranelagh Residence is a great example of an effective use of green paint in a design.
