Autumn/Winter 2011 Interior Design Colours 3: Pear Green

With lime green hitting the top of this year’s spring/summer interior design colours we’re going to see more muted and subtle tones with pear green this autumn/winter. Green remains firmly fashionable as it is such a soothing and yet refreshing colour, with all connections being associated to nature and renewable sources for materials.

There are so many ways you can add a touch of green to your home and if you chose to coordinate it with this year’s trendy plum or sophisticated greys it will prevent it from becoming to overbearing.

Pear in the living room:
Soft pear green used as an accent colour on one wall and teamed with plain pear green full length curtains offers a soft look which has a natural warmth. This gentle colour is also ideal when used near computers and games consoles as it naturally seems to reduce screen glare. Green accessories can be used to bring the room together, with little accents in table lamps, rugs, cushions and throws.

Pear in the bedroom:
This peaceful and tranquil colour is ideal for bedrooms, giving you a relaxing place to sleep and yet sufficiently invigorating to boost morale in the mornings. For large bedroom the combination of pear green and rich plum provide a trendy and modern look. For a more sophisticated style pair with grey. Use pear coloured double duvet covers in master bedrooms and a single duvet cover with pear and white patterns to brighten a smaller room.

Pear in the dining room:
As this colour is associated with food, hence the name, it’s a fabulous colour to use in a dining room. As green coordinates so easily with natural wood its a perfect match for dining room table and chairs. If you don’t need or have the budget on a complete makeover simply use pear green for curtains, rugs and table accessories.

Pear in the kitchen:
This gentle colour is reminiscent of autumnal fruits and harvests, use it to convey this natural look in your kitchen. White café style net curtains with floral or gingham checked curtains offers a homely country cottage feel even in modern homes. In contemporary kitchens you make like to go a few shades darker to give a more dramatic look which is sleek and very stylish when coordinated with silver grey appliances and glossy grey granite worktops and tiles.

Inject this colour as much or as little as you like, don’t go overboard though as too much will make the green your main rather than accent colour. Remember this ‘less is more’ if you want to make an impact which isn’t too ostentatious or overpowering.
