The world of interior design has been witnessing a strong trend for the colour green over the last few years. From earthy tones to jewel tones, shades of green are popping up everywhere in home interiors, from the walls to furniture and accessories. Green is particularly great for creating a sense of balance and harmony in a room by combining it with other colours. For a calming and sophisticated look, pair green with earth tones such as brown, grey or beige. For a bold and contemporary look, combine it with shades of pink and blue. For a more traditional feel, pair green with golds or reds.  

So, if you’re looking to add a fresh, vibrant touch to your home, look no further than the trendy colour green – it’s sure to give your home a unique and stylish makeover. 


The colour orange is making a big impact in the world of interior design in 2023. This trend, which is often associated with warmth, optimism, and vitality, is now being used to create inviting spaces throughout the home. Orange is also associated with many positive and uplifting qualities. It can be used to create inviting, energetic spaces that make people feel energized and inspired. It’s also a great colour to use for accent pieces, such as artwork and furniture, as it creates an eye-catching contrast to the other elements of the room.
