Trend Alert: Green is the new grey

Firstly a huge apology for my absence over the last few weeks - apparently organising a wedding and a house move at the same time is actually quite hectic and stressful. Who would have thought!? So I have been swamped with very boring things, but I am back and promise to be a better blogger from now on... (gulp).

Anyway today I thought I would drop some inspiration which has really got me thinking about how I am going to decorate our new house when we finally move in (expect lots of renovation posts over the next few months/YEARS - it's a real project). My default decorating setting is grey, grey grey. I love it, especially if it comes in a Farrow & Ball tin and has the word 'Pavilion' in the title. But my obsession with Pinterest has got me going green.

I love grey because its like a neutral to me, but the more I look at green the more I am seeing it that way too. It can be cosy, dramatic, fresh and zingy and looks fabulous in the Scandi inspired homes I love. It just seems to make things pop in the same way grey does, but its just a bit more exciting and fresh and change is good for you, right? I think I might just be converted, and after looking at these gorgeous rooms, you might be too...

I love the softness of this green - it just looks so dreamy against the crumpled linen and white marble

I think 5 years ago this wall would have been grey - it sits so well in the scheme even though there is only one green cushion and some cacti to pull it in

This gorgeous teal-y green adds drama and warmth to this room whilst making the wood and the floor tiles pop

A very easy green to use in any room - I just love it with the pale wood and white furniture and frames. Feels so fresh and clean
I just LOVE this colour. Works so well with the purple


Another way to use green is through super leafy wallpaper - something you are seeing everywhere at the moment. Try House of Hackney for some seriously statement fern prints

What do you think? Might you dip your toes into the murky green waters or are you staying loyal to your 50 shades?
