When it comes to decorating the living room, we often look to neutral colors. In most modern homes, the main color is white, gray or beige and it is the accessories that bring more vibrant accent colors. If you would like to choose a color that is neither neutral nor too garish, green is a great choice. Instead of incorporating small touches of green, you could choose it as the main color and get a refreshing decoration. Discover in this post some decorating ideas for a refreshing living room in green.
1. Brilliant shades of green
By choosing the shade (s) suited to the style or decoration theme of your living room, you will obtain a superb rendering. Those who want to create a cozy, warm and elegant decoration should try the lighter shades of green. Darker shades like emerald green can easily be visually overwhelming except with lavish light fixtures that will help create a beautiful opulent decor. Sage green and olive green will help you strike the balance between elegant and captivating decor.
2. Green … yellow and blue
It’s amazing, but living rooms decorated in green and yellow are much more common than one might imagine. Each color brings a unique touch to the decoration. The green and the yellow create a magnificent visual effect that sometimes the limit between the difference of the two colors is not noticed any more. Usually, a soft shade of yellow is chosen as the main color and a more striking shade of green as the accent color.
3. Light shades of blue and green
The light shades of blue and green also blend together perfectly. This helps to create a fresh and pleasant decoration and atmosphere in the living room. If yellow and green form a warmer and more intimate duo; green and blue, for their part, bring more freshness and recall the summer season.
4. Green … and texture
At one point, the wallpaper was old fashioned. However, designers quickly returned to this coating, no doubt because it provides a unique texture and the patterns and contrasts it brings are special. If you’re not sure whether to paint your walls green, you might want to start with wallpaper. You could choose a patterned model for a more striking design.
5. Fabulous accessories in green
If vases and cushions aren’t enough to make your living room feel refreshing, then the area rug, curtains, and upholstery are.
6. A warm and elegant green living room
Using green in small touches in a bright white industrial ensemble, the green living room combines freshness and luminosity. The sofa is dressed in velvet, linen or cotton, plaid or plain cushions and throws, playing on materials and prints for a fresh and silky green in a sober and elegant decor. The rooms open onto each other giving an effect of depth and natural light flows through each space for a luminous and relaxing ensemble like in the countryside.
7. A green living room with pop inspirations
It is on a floor covered with white epoxy resin that the designer Florence Jaffrain wanted to mix colors in her living room, while giving great importance to green. With a wall dressed in chlorophyll green (Tollens), she has chosen to decline her furniture in primary and frank colors. The “Bonheur” seats, designed by Florence Jaffrain, are available in yellow and blue. In the center of the green living room, two nesting tables (Fleux ‘) in steel and enamelled top echo these two colors. On either side of the space, two orange “Baloon” armchairs frame a sofa (Younow) made up of foam balls held in a net. “Full Moon” lights in red polypropylene, which made the designer’s success, are suspended from the ceiling.
8. A green living room with a nature spirit
Open to African nature, this green living room is a clever mix of colors, materials and styles: the velvet sofa was bought at auction at Ashbeys Auction, the armchairs come from Stanford Tranding, the shell armchair from Eddie Zoom , without forgetting the coffee table which also comes from an antique dealer. To recall the green of the surrounding nature, the owners have not skimped on the fabrics either, bought at auction for the cushions and the carpet at Gonsenhausers Fine Rugs. As if set up in the heart of nature, the living room puts everything on the green to create an atmosphere in the spirit of nature, soothing, which invites you to travel while showing great serenity.
