In The Press : Featured in Cotswold Style
Updated: Nov 14, 2018
We are proud to be featured in the March edition of Cotswold Style, having written their interiors article.
Interior Trends - Spring Greens
With the Cheltenham racing festival galloping through March, we decided this month to give you a quick guide to using British Racing Green in your interior schemes.
“Emerging out of a cold wet winter, the colour green is a welcome sign of spring. The current trends in interior design incorporate bold colours and fresh vibrant wallpapers, in a move away from the calm neutrals and greys.”
Now don’t get us wrong, we love greys as they are a fabulous backdrop to complement all colours but in recent years we have created a nation of grey interiors and when our weather is generally on the grey side too, we would like to encourage you to be brave and move away from the safe option – inject a zest of colour into your homes.
Kitchens are a great place to start and as a good example, deVOL have combined green cabinetry with sumptuous marble tops and brass fittings for that warmer tone. We particularly like the wall shelf for displaying artwork as it adds a more personal touch to the kitchen. If you have the opportunity, it is always beneficial to leave some wall space cabinet free.
If a block of dark colour on your walls is a step too far, there are some amazing wallpapers out there. Botanical prints are hugely popular and can give the feeling of bringing the outside in. Cole and Son have a great range as do the Black Parrot and Mind the Gap wallpaper suppliers. These can be used on whole walls or alternatively on the back of glazed cabinets and bookcases to add interest to your scheme.
Our favourite wallpaper at the moment is Indie Wood from Glasgow based firm Timorous Beasties. This comes in four colourways and looks phenomenal climbing up a stairwell.
A soft green velvet always looks wonderfully inviting on a sofa and the image fromthe Alice Lane Home Collection is a good example of how a deep green fits so well within a grey room scheme.
Sofa Workshop also have a good range of furniture and the Lady May sofa in moss green contrasts beautifully with the dark blue walls.
Alternatively, Designers Guild have some wonderful cushions including a range by Christian Lacroix, which give a softer nod to the green botanical theme.
