Green and red often recall Christmas time. But, because no one wants their living room to look like Santa's coming in August, many interior designers avoid the color combo all together. However, green and red can create a space that feels both fresh and interesting when used correctly. In this living room, a subtle terracotta red mixes organically with a cactus green for a Southwestern relaxed vibe and not Santa Claus.
This Mid-Century Modern living room is the picture of uniformity. With sofas mirrored and chairs evenly spaced, this room boasts eye-pleasing symmetry. Large plants in each corner round out the design and add height and dimension to the room.
Monochromatic spaces are great for creating a big mood but can feel intimidating for people who worry that committing to one color will make their room feel intense. A great way to balance a monochromatic style with a more chill vibe is to go green. Here, the sage-colored walls and assorted green hues make the space feel relaxed and interesting but not intense.
One of the reasons why mid-century modern style has become such an enduring trend is it's practical and beautiful forms, particularly its legs. In this living room design, the armchair, coffee table, and sofa all have simple legs, hair-pin and tapered, imbuing each piece with elegant height and making them easy to clean under.
So much of the natural world is green, from the dark moody-green of the forest to the jungle's rich hues. Perhaps this ecological diversity is to thank for how versatile green can be in interior design. In this transitional space, warm pea-greens feel both trendy and traditional, bridging the gap between the more classical and contemporary furniture styles.
Play up the wow factor for your space by adding textures and materials that not only draw the eye with their beauty but delight the senses with their feel. In this space, pops of green velvet add a luxe quality to the approachable transitional style, given the space tons of exciting variance.
Add some GREEN to brighten up your rustic style! Whether its fresh (or faux) greenery or botanical leafy prints, adding a little green creates a more airy, woodsy type of feel. Switching up or adding a wreath or garlands when the season's change can also be a great way to transform your style and add a bit of interest and depth to the overall look.
This minimal living room brings the fresh vibes with pops of green! This gorgeous color makes an otherwise neutral room even more inviting and comfortable. Keeping the pops in the accessories like pillows and art makes it easy to switch out if your preferences change over time.
