It all started last weekend while touring the Hickory Chair showroom in High Point when I spotted a single, velvet pillow in a beautiful hunter green. It was paired with teal and I thought, "how magnificently unexpected!" After that I kept spotting the same green everywhere I went. And so a new color obsession begins!
I think a lot of people are afraid to use green in their home. It's not as safe as our standard blues and grays, nor is it poppy enough to come to mind as a first choice accent color. But when done correctly, it can be wonderfully luxurious and create quite the statement.
In this charming home, owned by British designers Stephan Eicker and Gavin Houghton of Eicker & Houghton, they opted to pair it with warm colors, like reds, yellows, and golds. The result is a traditional space that's positively lovely and perfectly layered.
To speak a little more directly to my own aesthetic though, I'd actually pair the green with other cool colors like blues, purples, and even teal (as seen in Hickory Chair) for a more contemporary, updated look.
How would you use green in your home?
