Choosing the Right Green for Your Home

The process of choosing the right colours for your home is important and significant. Colours can set the tone for a space, as well as influencing how we feel and interact within. The right colour choices can transform a room from mundane to inspiring, from chaotic to calming.

Green, in particular can reference nature, tranquillity, and growth. Depending on the shade of green, it can also be a bold colour choice too! When it comes to incorporating green into your home, it’s essential to find the perfect hue to achieve the mood you’re looking for.

To help guide you through the process of selecting the right greens for your home, there are a few factors to consider such as location, the impact of light and permanency. At Fairhaven, we understand the importance of selecting the right shade of green that complements your space flawlessly. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of choosing the perfect green for your home, considering factors like location, lighting and longevity.


Where is it going?
Before you choose a shade of green, you need to know where it’s going. Each room has its own purpose, and your colour choice should be aligned with that. For example, while softer, lighter greens create a refreshing living space, a darker intense shade of green could be a great option for a home office.

By evaluating the purpose and characteristics of each room, you can tailor your green selection to enhance the overall function and look of the space.


The impact of light
Lighting is critical to consider when incorporating green into your home. The lighting conditions can influence the appearance of green shades, causing them to look cooler or warmer.

Rooms with abundant natural light tend to enhance the coolness of green, while those with limited light may bring out its warmer tones. Assess the lighting in the area you plan to introduce green elements to get it right.


Permanent VS non-permanent feature
Sometimes you might want a colour to be a fixed feature of your home. Or, if you like to have the flexibility of changing up your home decor something less permanent could be preferred.

Before deciding how to incorporate the colour green into your home design, decide whether you want it to stay long term or short termFor non-permanent green styling, consider artwork, soft furnishings or light fittings.

To establish a longer lasting design concept, more permanent green features such as accent walls, furniture or cabinetry can be excellent choices. Choosing the right green shade becomes even more crucial in this case, as it will set the tone for the entire space.


Exploring shades and depth
There are numerous shades of green that can be introduced into home design. Lighter, pastel greens can speak to freshness and tranquillity, making them perfect for bedrooms and bathrooms. Meanwhile, deep, earthy greens exude warmth and richness, making them ideal for creating a cosy atmosphere in dining areas or a bedroom.

Think about the depth of the green shade too — a single shade of green may appear differently depending on its saturation. A subtle, muted green can provide a sophisticated and calming vibe, while a bold, vibrant green can introduce energy and personality into a space.
