Kicking off 2017, we’ve predicted stabilisation in the property market with sustainable growth and high demand. Whether you’re looking to take advantage of the abundance of hungry buyers by putting your property on the market, or simply want to make your house feel more like a home; we’ve put together a series of interior design blogs, full of tips and trends to help you show your property in its best light.

This month, we’ve teamed up with Sophie Stevens, Founder of SGS Architectural Interiors to get her insight into arguably the biggest trend to watch out for in 2017; the return of green:

New year, new beginnings, and a welcome return of green to the interior palette. Traditionally associated with hope and optimism, the trend for integrating green surface finishes or foliage within our homes will come as a much sought after distinction to fast-paced urban lifestyles.

In contrast to the original toxic manufacture of green, blending arsenic and Verdigris, we now associate green with calmness and wellbeing. Letting the outside in has become increasingly popular within our workspaces and architecture, highlighted by a surge in the use of feature living walls and hanging plants.

 

Progressive and versatile, greens can be combined with a plethora of on-trend shades, such as blush pink or warm ochre tones to achieve an infinite array of styles. It can be used to add warmth and disparity to man-made finishes such as concrete or metal, while still complementing natural materials such as marble, raw timbers and leather.

For something small, adding a splash of green to any monochromatic interior will add an allure of contemporary, refreshing vibrance to a traditional palette. An air of opulence and luxury can be attained in any design with the simple addition of a deep green velvet sofa or chair.

For the brave, embracing the resurgence of colour and pattern in our homes, green can be paired with jewel tones for a rich and lavish complex colour palette to stimulate creativity.

However small, the addition of green is sure to revitalise your home for 2017.
