Color Trends :: Olive Green

I’ve been thinking adding a contributor for along time, but it wasn’t until I met Megan Bachmann that I decided to do it. Megan is a mother and has a great sense of style and aesthetic. She has a background in fashion, passion for interior design and writes her own blog, Otomi Home. I’m thrilled to welcome Megan to Simplified Bee!

Thank you Cristin for the sweet introduction. I am so excited about olive green as an upcoming color trend for 2015. Elle Decor recently did a feature on up & coming colors and I’m particularly excited about this one. Olive green is so lovely in interiors because it borders between being a neutral and a color, depending on how you use it. It can be bold or subtle, modern or traditional. It looks amazing paired with a multitude of colors include white, black, navy, orange, and turquoise. And of course it looks incredible paired with brass accents. Olive green just feels new again. Here are some inspiring rooms using olive green…

The olive green walls and velvet sofa feel luxurious and moody in this room in Barnaba Fornasetti’s residence in Milan.

An old standby room, also from domino, the olive green curtains act as a neutral and help to keep the turquoise painted room sophisticated.domino olive green(source)

Rustic, Elegant Row House in Brooklyn

Recently Vogue featured the Brooklyn home of  landscape designer and Vogue Contributing Editor, Miranda Brooks and her architect husband, Bastien Halard. Lead by Harlard, the rundown row house was completely renovated from head to toe in just six months. The interior design is American pastoral with rustic, yet elegant touches. And although new, the rooms are inviting and have a lived in feel I love. Speaking of love, it was the custom de Gournay wallcovering in the master bedroom and hand-painted/printed wallpapers in the girls’ rooms that had me looking twice at this home. (swoon)
