Lighting Inspiration for Green Toned Interiors

Think forest green kitchens, palm leaf wallpaper and sage coloured walls.

Luxury paint from environmentally friendly companies is especially popular this year. Recyclable packaging materials and water-based formulas are fantastic options when caring for our environment. It is important to support companies who strive for this whilst still achieving incredibly high-quality matt emulsions, ideal for inspiring character with rich pigmented colour. We often see paint companies trending on Instagram offering stunning heritage style paint and fantastic sustainability.
Green painted walls are a great way to bring a sense of earthiness to your bedroom that is synonymous with nature, offering a serene ambience to a room. The subtle vibrancy is perfect for bringing a touch of the outdoors in, add to this look by implementing foliage and potted plants on your sideboard or windowsill, giving a lush variation in green tones. If you’re looking to achieve an organic appearance in your home that complements your eco-friendly paint palette, the glass Carmella Ceiling Light displays a glossy sheen when reflecting natural light, making the surrounding area appear more open and radiant.
