From lush vertical gardens to succulents to every other variety of indoor plants, we all know that green is big news in interiors from a planting point of view – but now it's also taking hold as a trend-driven shade for furniture and decor items.

In our June/July 2019 print edition, we focussed on bright colours – including the primary shades of red, yellow and blue as well as a fresh green and bold orange – for our directional Curate decor shoot. Our upfront shopping pages were similarly themed, as well as including their usual focus on decor inspired by the fashion world.

Green is one colour that has long been a favourite of designers who like to add touches of drama and whimsy to their interiors. And it's an adaptable shade too. Emerald green velvet curtains or upholstery look gorgeous in chic feminine boudoirs, but also work in elegantly masculine rooms, for example. And acid green also makes a strong statement – especially when used for an accent piece – in just about any space.

So, taking inspiration from our print feature, here are a variety of green decor furniture items and decor accessories that you can shop online, directly from the links featured below. Which means you can easily add just a flash of green at home, or even (for those more smitten with the shade) create a beautiful green-on-green interior scheme.
