Green on the Scene

“Color as a designer is everything,” says world-renown designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. “It informs the vibrancy of a room and is like adding stunning jewelry to an outfit.” One of the vibrant enamel finishes Bullard unveiled in his new color collection for the iconic La Cornue French range is a classic shade of green, adding excitement to the kitchen. Other manufacturers such as Big Chill®, Blue Star®, True Residential® and more have introduced a range of green hues to their latest appliance offerings as well.

In 2022, shades of green are indeed having their moment, with four major paint brands declaring green as their “Color of the Year,” ranging from sea-glass to olive, sage and leafy greens. Perhaps there is no coincidence we’ve seen a surge in green-hued upholstery, cabinetry, tile and across a broad range of home accents. Thinking of embracing nature’s palette in bold or subtle ways? Take inspiration from our roundup of the latest green-hued schemes.

Fluid lines, supple texture and antiqued teak table tops enhance the look and feel of this boldly woven style, punctuated in this room with fresh lime-green accents in the drapery and rug. | LEFT: Penny Lane is Artistic Tile’s take on penny-round mosaics, elevated through the use of luxe natural stone in a true penny size laid in an offset pattern.

The secret? Durable pillow covers are made from solution-dyed acrylic rather than printed on fabrics and come with down-feel inserts wrapped in water-repellent covers.
