Color of the Moment: The Deepest Green

Interiors & Decor

Screenshot 2014-11-09 18.56.47

First it was the palest pink, then it was the deepest navy. Right now, I’m playing favorites with deep, dark greens. Maybe this obsession was sparked by our traditional English tudor house (hunter green is the color of our trim and sunroom)– which I hated a first— and now, couldn’t imagine any other way. This color plays front and center in traditional interiors (think old libraries and smoking rooms), adding substance to even the most modern interiors. I like to think of it as a more adventurous alternative to navy. Could it be that color is making a comeback? Looks like Swedish super stylist Lotta Agtaon is having a moment with deep green, too.

    I would have never thought to incorporate this color into my home. I especially love it with the brass accents.

    I’m always drawn to this color in clothing, especially in the cooler months. But, never would have thought to incorporate it into furnishings, I am loving it with gold accents seen here but any metallic would be lovely!

    I’ve always been drawn to foresty greens. I love all of the interesting pops of color in these spaces. Great roundup Kate!

    One of my favorite colors lately. SW makes a color called “Black Emerald” that I got a gallon of like a year ago, and only just used it two months ago to paint our fireplace. It’s dark enough that it almost looks black at times. Unreal. I think they only make it in an exterior paint, though. Which still won’t stop me from dousing our entire powder room.

    hmmmm. forest green is dangerous in interior applications. I feel that it gets boring fast and would be replaced by another color…on whatever application. sometimes it works but more than often…not.
