Get the look: Forest Geen

November 5, 2016

With the weather getting colder, we find ourselves drawn to cozy and comforting dark colours. Although deep shades may seem daunting, they are actually easy to incorporate into almost any interior. Deep colours are full of character and evoke a sense of drama and intrigue. Dark green walls have been found in houses for centuries and were popular during both Georgian and Victorian eras. We take a look at how this beautiful and versatile colour can be brought into the 21st Century.
