The Colour of the Season: Olive Green
Strong, sophisticated, and timeless, olive green is the perfect colour to incorporate into your décor. This fall, we’re seeing this hue pop up everywhere (it’s even been established as one of the hot colour trends of 2015). You may think that olive green would only fit into the décor at a drab law office or remote hunting lodge, but scroll through our slideshow to see just how versatile, fresh, and stylish this classic colour can be.
Embrace this dusty hue and go all out by painting an entire space olive green. We love the sophisticated look it brings to built-in shelves and cabinetry, and we can’t deny the moody sophistication created when an office or library is painted in this rich colour.
Particularly rich when used for upholstery, olive green furniture looks classic in all interior styles. Worn olive green leather works well on dining chairs, and the colour looks particularly striking on velvet sofas and headboards.
If you like the idea of this colour but don’t want to fully commit, incorporate olive accents into your décor to ease into the trend. Decorative pillows, throws, artwork, and accessories are great places to start, and should your taste change, they’re a breeze to switch out.
