Is anyone else noticing that from the cat walk to casual classics, military green is appearing everywhere? In varied shades from dark olive to soft army green and teamed with all the popular neutrals; black, white, grey and tan it’s popping up all over the place! And where fashion goes, interior design follows. I am predicting that military green will become the new must have dark interior colour as we move into spring this year…

Military Green Works with all the Current Interior Trends…
All things natural are on trend right now. Indoor plants, handcrafted decor such as macrame decoration and chunky knitted throws. Think raw, worn and aged timber finishes, stone, paper and linen. In this setting military green makes for a perfect on trend accent colour that brings the outside in.
Nordic interior design is here to stay with its abundance of natural light, space, and simple, well-designed furnishings. Imagine dark green as a paint colour creating a woodsy backdrop for typical Scandi finishes such as hides, fur, leather, linen, cork and raw timber.
Bleached White with Dramatic Black
The black and white combination is a classic that will never go out of style, but for those of us that can’t live without colour, soft or faded military green as an accent can add depth or subtle interest.
Free spirited Boho is always an eclectic mix of pattern, texture and colour including brick, orange, amber, mustard, green, light aubergine, deep red, and chocolate brown. Military green slots easily into this extensive mix with its slightly grunge tones.
If you love an opulent and luxurious interior, military green works here too. Think rich materials such as velvets, satins, and silks, contrasting with woolen felt, concrete, and flannel. Heavily influenced by history, portraits and still lifes are the perfect addition as large wall art or on smaller objects such as trays and paperweights. Metallic favourites sit flawlessly alongside all colours deep and mysterious like dark army green, burnt browns, murky magenta and deep blue.
Angular geometry and artfully painted effects such as watercolor or colour gradients are still featuring heavily in contemporary design. Transparent is cool too because it creates visual space, so metal wire furniture, lucite and glass are enormously popular contrasted with textured materials such as a felt and wool. Military green has the ability to bring this style back down to earth.

Military green has attitude, it’s strong yet safe, cool but not cold and is anchored to the outdoors. No matter your style, you can sneak it in somewhere…
