Color Of The Month: Green

Above, hunter green walls create a gorgeous yet intimate feel in Frances Merrill’s home, featured in Domino.

Green is an under-appreciated color that makes an incredible impact in a room. From a decorating standpoint, greens have the power to make a room feel soothing. It’s true no matter how intense the hue: A living room in soft greens has a calming presence, while a more intense emerald gives a cozy quality that’s also unmistakably luxe. But green may make a big comeback in the new year — Pantone named an intense yellow-green shade called “Greenery” its color of the year for 2017. No matter if you go with soft or saturated shades, a hint of green might be what you need to update your interiors. Here are just a few of our favorite pieces currently available at Viyet, all in green:

Vintage Custom Faux Malachite and Black Lacquered Wood Console

Why we love it: An elegant form gives this custom wood console a sculptural feel. But the main reason we fell in love with this piece is the faux malachite veneer. All in all, this console is a piece that makes a splash in any setting.

Vintage Green Lacquer Side Tables

Why we love them: A deep green lacquer is an unusual yet chic choice for these side tables curated by The Good Eye Gallery. The tinted beveled glass top allows you to glimpse the well-crafted classical forms from any angle. Genuine bronze accents also add an eye-catching quality to these unique tables.

Michael Berman Limited Gran Strato Swivel Lounge Chair

Why we love it: Not all greens have to be intense to make an impact in a room. This gorgeous accent chair is upholstered in a muted green that reminds us of sun-faded sea glass. The linen upholstery visually softens the unique shape of the chair, allowing it to fit into a wider range of décor styles than a bolder hue would.
