Since Pantone named Emerald Green colour of the year in 2013 the bold hue has been a popular choice for those looking to add drama and brightness to a space. But there’s a new green trending for 2015 which is more refined than its jewel-toned cousin.
Olive green is a muted shade that is much warmer and more organic than emerald. Whether it’s dark and subdued or a lighter, more yellowed version, olive has a natural feel and can act as a neutral in many situations.
It can be paired with virtually anything but works best when accented with clean colours like black and white. This keeps the look modern and fresh.
Combined with rich warm colours like brown, maroon and eggplant, olive evokes an old-world feel. This deep and moody shade is perfect for a classic library, office or traditional living room.
Or you can try mixing it with soft pink for a daring colour palette that is unexpected and feminine. Olive is a surprisingly versatile colour that can be styled to suit any taste.
We here at Statum Designs love the olive trend and we’re keeping you in style in 2015 with new pieces and fabrics. You’ll be sure to find some olive green in the new collection!
