Proof that all things come in cycles- hunter green is back with a vengeance this season both in fashion and interiors. Once a color I loved in the 80’s and early 90’s (I certainly had hunter green Limited Too mom jeans), the color now has a bit more of a luxe look- especially when paired with gold. It also happens to be a VERY good color for brunettes to wear specifically- making blah brown look richer and pale skin look more alabaster. Here’s some inspiration to prove my point:
I personally am loving hunter green and light dusty pink, which the the scheme for my guest room based on that amazing vintage fabric I found and made into a bolster pillow. I decided to paint the walls a light pink (Benjamin Moore’s Blanched Coral- awesome) to bring out the pink in the pillow and I love it! I also have a vintage chair that will go in here in a deep, deep green velvet, which I love next to the wall color. Please pardon this completely un-styled camera phone shot:
You get the picture though. Here are some other ideas to utilize this rich color combo in the home. Hunter green also pairs amazing with turquoise, camel and LEOPARD!
