Mix and match with olive green
Rich, warm and organic, olive green is being revitalised for 2015! Make sure to check out our most recent colour trend feature.
From muddy tones to softer shades, olive green is the perfect colour for bringing a touch of nature into your home. It’s also fairly neutral, which makes it an ideal base colour for complimenting with bold monochrome features, vivid accent colours or softer shades.
Just like teal and aubergine, olive green tends to make interiors look more sophisticated and works wonderfully with metallic shades such as copper, bronze or chrome. The perfect high-shine accompaniments can be found within Tom Dixon’s range, which includes the iconic Copper Shade Light, Etch Tea Light Holders and the Base range.

Dark olive green looks effortlessly stylish and sophisticated paired with both traditional and contemporary features.
Softer shades of olive green can help to create a tranquil and calming environment, especially when complimented with mint or sage green. Pale wood furnishings and plenty of greenery will add the perfect finishing touches to your nature-inspired look.
For something a little more contemporary, try pops of bright chartreuse or lime green.
