Green may be the most difficult of interior colors for a designer to work with, but among the richest and most unique when executed well. Spikes of emerald green appear to be on trend, but nothing sets a room apart like the color’s warmer hues.
This designer, who works with historical and preservation projects like no other, has a personalized approach to the use of green in residential settings, be it the softness of green in a French style living room or the boldness of the deeper hue in a glorious New Orleans Garden District home or the period-perfect choice of color for the restoration of Crichel, one of England’s grandest Georgian houses. He attributes his love of green to his early affection for early Georgian interiors. It was a very popular color in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and this interior designer enjoys looking at old ideas and seeing something new in them.
Colors go in and out of style, which is often a factor of fashion. But one can argue, despite fashion—green is not only timeless, it’s a bold color to use.
