Use pretty pops of green to lift any living space.
1 Standing tall
If the majority of your rooms consist of muted neutral shades, brighten things up with a large, eye-catching statement piece. This Dôme Deco glass vase from Bloomingdale’s Home will add a subtle pop of colour and contemporary charm to your living area.

2 Wrap me up
Brighten up your linen cupboard with vibrant colours, rather than the standard mauve, taupe and grey. This green Hären towel from Ikea is a fun and bright addition, and available as a hand towel, washcloth, bath sheet and bath towel.

3 Put the kettle on
If your home already features a lot of colour, but you’re keen to add a few green accents, look to your kitchen cupboards for inspiration. Items such as plates, bowls or mugs, such as this one from Excelsa, will work perfectly, without clashing with the rest of your interiors.

4 Lighter options
Smaller pieces, such as jewellery boxes, soap dishes, candles and bookends, are a great way to work green into your space. This pretty candle from Zara Home emits a wild-bamboo scent.
