One colour that has taken its time in returning to the foreground is olive green. Omnipresent in the 1970s, it fell out of favour for being dated and too murky, but recent trends show that it is making a strong comeback into our interiors.
This dining room shows the power of olive green at its best. By playing off the soft yellows and wooden floorboards, the olive green walls create a welcoming, sumptuous backdrop that is both natural and modern.
Gold is an element that particularly works well with olive green as illustrated in the refined bathroom below. The gold picture frames, cream wall tiles and limestone flooring all work together to create a fresh and clean space to relax and recuperate.
Because olive green is such a muted and understated colour, it can work well with outlandish patterns and colours as shown by the delightful mid-century chair below. The combination of olive green fabrics and darkened wood add a solid emphasis to the monochrome patterned cushion and give weight to the modern living space.
And this Scandinavian-style olive green table is a great example of how the simple use of a strong colour like olive green can soften and pull together disparate elements in a room.
Whereas this beautiful dresser allows the natural wood to shine through the olive green glaze, creating a sophisticated and chic sense of depth to the bright and breezy room!
