Getting inspired by nature is the ideal way to create a truly revitalizing home space. Start here with the color green: from subtle seafoam to bright limes, the versatility of this color means it carries with it a feeling of calm. Whether this be in the colors of your walls or floors or through accentuating your space with accessories, soft furnishings or houseplants, here’s how to transform your home into a natural paradise.
When going green, there’s actually a myriad of different shades and tones to choose from, but keep your palette small and subtle to prevent things from turning sickly. Make sure you’re selecting colors that are actually found in nature, steering clear of chemical neon.
We’ve nominated earthy greens, pairing them with a monochrome geometric pattern that makes the bed linen pop, providing the link between the rich olive of the sheets and the mid-tone grey of the painted timbers which make up our Arlette bed. These soft textile details do really create a dreamy feel that’s ideal for the place you lay your head.
With this look, it’s unsurprising that we’re centring the concept around botany trends (it is a greenhouse, after all…). Creating a home for houseplants is about more than just bringing the outdoors in (though this is a huge ethos of the trend) – styling your houseplants in unique and interesting ways will be a source of endless delight.
For evergreen freshness, dangle some plants above and around your bed, letting them swing freely and frame a statement piece like our Original Rustic nightstand. The inclusion of rustic oak furniture helps the look retain an underlying warmth that softens walls, floors and, in this case, corners thanks to its honey-colored finish.
Greenhouse living room
Inject a bit of New York loft style into your home by experimenting with textures: the marriage of industrial metal and solid oak we see in our Brooklyn collection has utilitarian undertones thanks to its use of hard materials, however, characterful weather-worn plant pots add that much-needed sprouting of life.
This coffee table, in particular, is a real gem for those needing extra storage space while not wanting to compromise on style.
Greenhouse dining room
In this collection, our dining sets can be found with either six chic bistro chairs or with two chairs and two benches, giving you the opportunity to surprise and delight guests with your super-relaxed family dining arrangement.
Our strictly cool green palette is pleasantly disrupted with the help of our Arlette console table; its clean and modern painted finish adds brightness and variety to your design scheme. It’s also an ideal spot to allow your houseplants to flourish.
Greenhouse home office
