Another movement in the interiors industry responding to the need to get back to nature is to literally ‘go green’. Feel free go to town painting those walls sophisticated shades of green - our personal favourite Farrow & Ball choices are Cooking Apple Green, Arsenic and Studio Green. If you need a little tempting, green looks incredible with pink the colour of the moment as well as copper or gold, our favourite metals!
But if that is a little too literal, the green movement can be interpreted through bringing plants back into our environments. Plants remove toxins and pollution, and are therefore a wonderful way to help create a relaxing detox home environment, whilst also adding pattern, colour and texture. Just look at living walls which have become incredible statement features in many top hotels and retail shop displays. Check out Anthropologie and the Athenaeum Hotel who were pioneers of this.
On a slightly smaller but no less beautiful scale there are terrariums, miniature landscapes which include, moss, plants, succulents, cacti and even in some cases crystals. They also happen to be taking the styling world by storm!
For a little inspiration on how to interpret the green trend by bringing plants in your home have a look below:
A fabulous pairing who have well and truly embraced the trend for all things living in the home are Igor Josifovic (one of our fellow Amara Interior Blog Award 2014 winners for his Happy Interior Blog) and Judith de Graaff. They created an inspirational online community - Urban Jungle Bloggers, dedicated to all things green! For amazing ideas, beautiful plant pictures and infinite blogs on the subject head over to Urban Jungle Bloggers.
We love trying to squeeze a bit of greenery into our imagery when styling our photoshoots, it has an instant lifting affect and literally, brings a picture to life!
