Green With Envy: Inspiring Interior Color

Green With Envy: Inspiring Interior Color

At Remodelista, we’ve been obsessed with various shades of green lately. Perhaps it’s our yearning for spring, or simply the way this color adds life to an interior. Here are some inspiring uses, ranging from bold washes of lime to smaller accents in emerald.

Above: Furniture that has been painted a grass green and pendant lights accent this bright white dining room in Amsterdam.

Above: In the Breslin Restaurant in New York, high gloss, green and black paints add a richness to the interior.

Above: LA-based designer Alexandra Loew painted the door frame bright green in this Santa Monica bungalow.

Above: Lime green and stainless steel punctuate this modern LA kitchen.

Above: At the Casa Honoré (a “mini hotel” in Marseilles), the owners added the color green to a white room via vintage hanging lights and a bed blanket.

Above: Originally seen in the New York Times, this bathroom gets a living dose of green from various plants growing around the vanity.

Above: In this Sausalito home, the owners added color to their bathroom with vertically stacked tiles in different shades of green.

Above: A spiral staircase painted green adds a dose of color to this sparse and rustic interior.

Above: Green punctuates this workspace, from the walls, to the lamp, to the vintage bottle.

I love the Dining Room in Amsterdam. It looks so fresh!!

We redid our Living Room a couple of years ago with a dark tweed-green sofa and I think it is too dark. Maybe I should add some light colored pillows to liven it up.

I have usually had all white walls and used colours to accent. In the livingroom, I have pine furniture and on the settee, instead of traditionally covered cushions to sit on, I took flat sheets and wrapped the cushions. The coverings are easy to clean and easy to change. I use different colour throw pillows and my window coverings are match-stick bamboo roll-ups which are really good if you have cats. With these elements, it keeps the room livable and simple. In my bedroom and a spare room, I went to a mossy green for all four walls. My room again has pine furniture and additional colour, some of it green, comes from bed coverings etc. In this room a bold purple is also there and looks great. The other room has dark furniture but the name of the game is adding additional colour. Both rooms are restful which is what you want in a bedroom. The den has darker red walls which go great with a grey and black wrap around computer desk. I call this the cat room because one wall is covered in pictures and decorations of cats. This is what I call my fauna room while the spare bedroom is my flora room. I spend so much time at home, I want to enjoy my space.

Green is such a peaceful, natural colour

Green is my favorite color, and I particularly love it as the color of the Portuguese bedroom wall and the bathroom tiles in the Sausalito home.
