This week in the Wylde blog the colour scheme is green! Interior design is an art form that relies heavily on colour to create mood, evoke an emotive response, and set the tone for a space. Among the vast palette of possibilities, green stands out as a versatile and tranquil colour choice. It’s a colour that not only pleases the eye but also soothes the soul! In this Wylde insight we’re exploring the world of green in interior design, delving into colour theory, colour psychology, and the relaxing properties that make green a top choice for creating serene and inviting spaces.

The last few months have been busy, we’ve just had the last bank holiday of the summer and it’s time to slow things down a bit. Green has a calming effect on the human mind. It’s often linked to feelings of relaxation and tranquility. In interior spaces, this makes green an excellent choice for areas where you want to create a sense of peace and serenity, such as bedrooms, lounges or break out spaces.

Green is located at the centre of the colour spectrum, making it a colour of balance. It can help harmonise other tones in a room, making it an ideal choice for creating cohesive and visually pleasing interiors. It’s also strongly associated with the natural world, representing growth, renewal, and vitality. Incorporating green into your interior design can bring a touch of the outdoors inside, creating a connection with nature also known as biophilia!

One of the most compelling reasons to use green in interior design is its relaxing properties. Green’s calming influence can help reduce stress and promote a sense of tranquility within a space. Using green in combination with natural materials like wood and stone to enhance a connection to nature. This can make a space feel like a peaceful retreat. To prevent overwhelming a room with green, balance it with neutral colours like white, beige, or grey. These shades can create a serene backdrop while allowing green accents to shine. Still not feeling green-keen? Green can also be introduced through accessories like throw pillows, rugs, and artwork. These accents provide a pop of colour while maintaining a peaceful ambiance.

By understanding the principles of color theory and harnessing the psychological effects of green, you can transform your spaces into a sanctuary of tranquility and well-being. Embrace the green, and let its soothing symphony harmonise your interior design scheme – check out our gallery for some inspo!
