Seven ways to work the GREEN trend right now!

Green. We can’t stop seeing it. Ever since our time at AmericasMart last month, we’ve noted a trend. And it’s pretty fabulous.

We keep seeing green in tones of moss and emerald specifically, many with metallic silver or gold touches. Such as the above green velvet (yum!) tufted ottoman from Design Legacy.

Whether green is showcased on textiles, hard surfaces or even simple decorative accents, it consistently adds a rich, luxurious touch!

Those pieces above spotted in the Worlds Away AmericasMart showroom are stunning in photos and even better in person. True showstoppers.

All of these green beauties had us searching our showroom to find our own gloriously green items – available right now…

We are head over heels for this new Cotton + Quill wallcovering, available in custom green hues. It’s called “The Hunt,” and between the bird theme and the beautiful colors, we’re done for.

Our classic alpaca throws by Alicia Adams are made from 100% baby alpaca. They are hypoallergenic, extremely soft and warm yet light weight. And this “Racing Green” colorway in a subtle herringbone pattern is lovely. Toss it over a chair in your reading nook, at the foot of your bed, or alongside your sofa for chilly evenings for a beautifully soft green accent.

You know we love some acrylic drinkware around here and this lovely green “Milly” tumbler is the perfect example of why… It’s stylish, durable, and this green hue is especially eye catching! Of course, a set will be ideal for your outdoor entertaining space, however, a single tumbler can make an especially stylish impact and has so many uses around the house – toothbrush holder, pen cup, etc.

And we couldn’t share a post all about green without mentioning the “Cypress” color in our signature steve mckenzie’s textiles… We’re especially fond of the Cypress colorway in the Scallop print fabric! A settee covered in this stunning textile would just take the cake in any space, while a table simply set with Cypress Scallop print fabric napkins is a more subtle way of introducing this trend. Either would be a surefire winner!

There you have it – our top six finds for introducing this wonderfully green trend into your space! If you’d like assistance creating a design, full of trendy green hues, reach out to the McKenzie Design team today!!
