September Mood Board “Night Watch”

Just as September is coming to an end I am bringing my green lover followers this unique and sophisticated mood board. This is the first of many to come boards, one for each month. So if you are not a big fan of this shade of color, not to worry, just keep an eye out for next month’s mood board.

This month’s board is inspired by 2019 color of the year “Night Watch”. A deep forest green color that works well for fall interiors. Today I am elaborating on my previous blog, to bring you different ideas on how to use this color in your interiors. But, first you have to make sure that this color resonate with you, do not just use it because it’s the trend.

The psychology behind this color:

The color green suggests nature, harmony and balance. It is often used in interiors to bring a calming effect & relieve stress. But beware, because this year’s green is a darker daring tone and although it might have the above effects but it’s dark undertone can totally change your interior experience to more of a grand, luxurious and majestic one.

This mid-century color can be used in a very contemporary way by mixing it with metallics, other greens or blush pinks. On this board you can actually see that I have mixed my tones of greens and used gold as my metallic to give it an edgy look. This palette works well in airy interiors with lots of light coming in. I can see a big accent half wall painted this color with white wainscoting, in a very high ceiling, & very lit space, pairing it with a lighter shade of green or having an accent wallpaper wall next to it; would bring the space together nicely. A light green rug to bring this color back on the floor and pop of furniture with lots of plants suggesting the same colors can make a big difference in this space experience.

However, if you are not a big fan of statement walls (me!). You can always use this color on small accessories or furniture, paired with black metals to give it more definition or blush pink to give it a romantic, chic and luxurious feel. You can emphasize the last look by combining it with rose gold/copper instead of the gold and black, something unique for the daring ones.
