Green is the colour of 2021, and for good reason. It represents everything we are yearning for: outdoor spaces, fresh air and freedom. It’s also a notoriously tricky hue to get right. Before you cultivate a verdant scheme, start by weighing up which shade of green best suits you. Are you a shy almost greige khaki, an irreproachably tasteful sage, a gentle verdigris, or a dramatic malachite?

When you’ve found your shade, it’s time to decide how much is too much. Solid, wall-to-wall green is a bold move, and if you aren’t ready to commit, think accents instead — pot plants, vases or candlesticks, a kitchen blind or a green-on-white block printed lampshade are popular entry level greens.
