You all know by now that I love plants as I’ve previously featured a few product ranges designed to help us bring the outdoors into our homes including the Satsuma plant stands from IKEA and the Typographic Plant Pots from Design Letters & Friends. But you will also be aware that I am pretty bad at keeping plants alive, except for really hardy varieties such as Dracaena and cacti. Nevertheless, this trend for bringing more greenery inside is one that I have embraced in my own home. When we bought our flat in October 2013, the first room we decorated was the livingroom. I opted to paint the walls in a deep shade of green called Moss Blanket by Dulux. I find green very calming and tranquil and I love how it makes me feel connected to the outdoors without having to spend too much time outside (I’m more of a home bod than an outdoorsy type). This worked really well with our furniture, which we bought from Next. The Hoxton range (which is sadly no longer available) brings the warmth of wood into the room and really compliments the green walls. Then last year we really upped the ante when we decided to create a feature wall using Graham & Brown’s Honolulu Palm Green Wallpaper.
Above you can see that I have created a small collage showing some of my favourite products that feature in my livingroom. These include (clockwise):
- Honolulu Palm Green wallpaper from Graham & Brown
- KOTA Charcoal fabric 2 seater sofa bed from Habitat
- Moss Blanket paint from Dulux
- VQ Bardot DAB Radio
- Shelving Unit from Nordic Bliss
- Multiple Dracaena plants
- The Hoxton furniture range from Next
There are still a few updates I want to make to the livingroom, which you can read about here. It’s a work in progress but we are slowly getting there. And almost three years after decorating I am still totally in love with our green livingroom and the trend for greenery in interiors.
What do you think about the trend for greenery in interiors?
