The color green is currently very fashionable, as evidenced by many decorating ideas with its shades for all rooms of the house. Shades of green have relaxing properties, they are also very versatile and easy to coordinate with other colors. In addition, the shades of this color blend very nicely with the wooden surfaces found in the decors of most designer houses in recent years..
How to use shades of green in your interior design ?
For all these reasons, shades of green are gaining more and more popularity. If you like this color or a specific shade of green, you too could consider designer decorating with it. Contrary to what one might think, shades of green are not at all difficult to integrate into a modern interior. To prove it to you, we invite you to take a tour in a magnificent design house fitted out by the Polish firm Zarysy.
The project, called Secret Garden (or Jardin Secret in French), was conceived and visualized by Zarysy. He shows us that a few touches of green is enough to completely transform the atmosphere of an interior space. The work focused on fitting out a 72.8 square meter apartment in the Lodz region of Poland.
In this designer house, bursts of emerald rub shoulders with natural wood surfaces and walls in neutral hues, such as beige and white. The living space has plenty of vertical storage designed to optimize its organization. These storage units are presented as shelves and built-in wardrobes. Those looking for space saving furniture ideas can surely find inspiration !
To add to this, the decorators of this apartment have successfully combined several styles of interior design. It thus has modern, contemporary and mid-century touches that complement each other wonderfully. Come and see his pieces one by one to convince you !
A decor with a shade of green for the heart of the apartment
The Secret Garden apartment has a large central room with an open plan. It functions as the heart of the living space and facilitates communication between the different areas of the interior. The open space is visually divided into the kitchen, dining room and living room.
Like most of the other rooms in this designer apartment, this open space is dominated by neutral colors and touches of wood. White, gray and black play the role of dominant shades. To complete them, we chose wood wall cladding. The same natural material is also used in the floor covering.
Wood is not the only natural material in this part of the apartment. In fact, metal is also included, although in a more limited way. It is used in particular as decorative accents. They are found on the legs of the dining room table and on the pendant lights in this area..
But it’s the shades of green that make this interior truly remarkable. They are also what give it all its personality. The green here is included first as part of the wall decor, with paintings adorning the walls.
These seem to be inspired by encyclopedias of biology which represent the details of different plant parts. To complete them, the decorators have opted for flower pots with indoor green plants.
The shade of dark green as a paint color
Then we find another shade of green in the mural of this open space. A dark shade is chosen in particular to emphasize the shapes of the entrance to the room.
The kitchen is also characterized by a strong presence of the shade of dark green. This appears in the room as a paint color for the base units. To further illuminate the interior, the decorators have opted for light wood floors. They also chose a white worktop that emphasizes the shade of dark green.
The rest of the kitchen furniture is painted in white color.
It is accompanied by a touch of black, chosen especially to highlight the corner of the fireplace. This combination of neutral colors and wood gives the kitchen and adjacent rooms a decidedly Scandinavian air..
Green accents for the entire living space
But the presence of shades of green is not limited only to this room in the house. Far from it, the color green and its hues are omnipresent in this designer apartment decor. We find them, more or less noticeably, also in the corridors, in the bathroom and in the toilets …
In short, the Secret Garden is a project that relies heavily on the presence of shades of green. It’s a daring bet because this color rarely goes unnoticed. The good news for the decorators at Zarysy is that the bet has paid off. In fact, we invite you to browse the rest of the images of this project to judge for yourselves..
