Green is the summer 2012 decor trend
The colour green is making waves not only on catwalks this summer but also on interior trends.
According to various high profile designers, green is the must-have colour for a property’s décor in 2012 and homeowners across the UK are being encouraged to embrace the tropical trend.
Jungle fabrics were all over the spring/summer catwalks this year and the trend has been picked up in interiors too with everything from palm leaves and pineapples to exotic flowers. Retailers are conjuring up numerous ways for fashionistas to welcome the boost of colour into the home with faux-stuffed flamingos, bright cushions and tropical environments.
Dan Hopwood from the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID), advised The Independent to use “emerald and green jazzed up with lime and a splash of terracotta in kitchens or conservatories.”
If you want to embrace the trend and brighten up your kitchen this summer, here are some top tips from Britannia Living.
It is important you choose a shade of green to create a kitchen that suits your personality and the look you want to achieve. A bright, zesty citrus design can instantly lift the spirits of anyone entering the living space but if you are unsure whether to take the plunge, you can introduce the colour in small effects with various furnishings such as a green tiled splashback, range cooker or accessories.
Little splashes of green in the appliances, cutlery or wall hangings can transform the room from drab to chic - lime looks fantastic against darker wood tones or white gloss.
If you are uncertain whether you can make the bold move to revamp your kitchen décor, rest assured that green is a perfect choice for interior design because homeowners are accustomed to seeing it everywhere in the natural world. The colour is more commonly seen by the human eye than any other colour and is thought to promote feelings of relaxation and harmony. Natural shades of green like forest or lime green are considered revitalising and refreshing.
