Colour of the week – Evergreen

When I think of winter colour it’s always the richest of colours that come to mind – it’s why over the past few weeks I’ve been featuring deep blues through to warm reds, but this week I’ve been thinking about one of winters truest colours – Evergreen. Nabbing it’s name from the trees that defy winter, by keeping their leaves through the cold, this deep shade of green is great for winter as it brings bit of the outdoors in, without bringing the cold with it. Evergreens are typically darker shades of green that are mostly blue based, but not quite emerald. Evergreen is a very bold colour, so unless you absolutely adore green, I’d recommend using this colour in small doses – a little bit of bold colour goes a long way! Check out the below images and tips for a variety of ways you can use Evergreen…. 

Use one bold feature piece – If you are wanting to commit, a bold green sofa in rich velvet is an exceptional choice for formal lounge rooms…

Add it with Art – Adding colour with art is a great way bring in bold pops of colour. The best part is – if you’re not investing in original pieces that hold high value – art can easily be stored away (under beds for example) and just brought out for the relevant seasons (aka Winter). With a softer hued wall, this room could easily be toned down for Spring with other pastel colours…. 

Dining chairs say it all –  Simply using the velvet fabric in this rich green hue gives this space impact and a real wow factor. But by incorporating these formal chairs with some casual elements a space is created that is fun and relaxed.

Prove is can be summery too – Mixed with pale timbers, bright whites and fresh florals, this evergreen hue works beautifully for more summery settings too…

Bring the outdoors in – bringing some green into your home instantly gives it a “fresher” feeling. Whether it’s a pot-plant, fresh flower arrangements or something like these green glass vessels – the additional of nature’s favourite hue is undoubtedly one of the best ways to liven up your living spaces…
