How to incorporate one of spring / summer 2022's key colours into your home

Kelly Green Bedroom

Looking to brighten up your home? Green is the perfect, accessible shade to introduce a natural colour palette into any room. This Spring/Summer 2022 is dominated by Kelly Green, a colour commonly associated with the famous Irish holiday, St Patrick's Day. It's got a bright, springtime feel that is perfect to transition your home to the next season.

Picking your hue

Kelly Green can feel quite bright, so pairing it with the right green hue will help complete your look. Green hues tend to make rooms feel creative and calm, making it a perfect colour for the bedroom and living rooms. 

Some of our favourite shades of green are sage green and olive green for a softer accent. If you prefer a darker hue, emerald green or cedar green are moody shades that will bring instant calmness to your space. 

Green throws for a sofa

There's a green blanket to fit every taste, from pretty pastel green to dramatic forest green shades 

Spring in the UK can be a bit all over the place weather-wise, which is why we love having a green wool throw draped over our sofa for those chillier evenings. These green blankets will look elegant in your living space (no other decoration needed!)

Looking for a unique shade of green?

If you’re looking for a truly unique shade of green for your home, then you need to consider The British Blanket Company's latest Special Edition collection. Or more specifically, the Samphire Ripple' Merino Throw or 'Coast Ombre' Merino Throw. These green throws were inspired by the natural colours of the British coastline and are woven from soft and light merino lambswool. 

The 'Samphire' blanket combines verdant green yarns in a flowing Ripple design. The 'Coast Ombre' blanket combines seven tonal green shades on the face, with a mottled sage reverse. Both are made in an historic mill on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border.

Incorporating green into your home

Green hues make a fresh impact, especially when you set them against neutral shades like white or black. Don’t be afraid to mix textures and prints together either. We love when rooms embrace the richness of green and all the shades it offers, so don’t hold back if you want to use green across the board! As well as green paint on the walls, we’re talking green tiles, wallpaper, green worktops, green upholstery, curtains and more. Mix different elements together to make an elegant statement. 

Here are a few rooms we love that really went for it with green:

Green bathrooms have emerged as a huge interiors trend over the last couple of years and glossy green tiles can be found for all budget. Square tiles in straight lines are also making a comeback, as this upscale shower room shows

Green accents

One of the easiest ways to add green accents into your home is with plants. Keep it simple with a few key green pieces in your room like a green throw draped on your sofa, a cushion or a decorative vase. Then, use plants as your finishing touch and tap into the biophilic interior design trend.
