With Wimbledon fast approaching, we couldn’t help but notice how gorgeous the crisp tennis whites look against the lush green lawn courts, and how easy it is to bring this cool colour combo inside. So we’ve brought together a volley of interior inspiration that will leave your home looking champion.
There’s something soothing about green and white, which makes it perfect for bedrooms. The association with nature is emphasised in this pretty Willow Bough print, taken from the William Morris archives. Originally designed for wallpaper in 1887, it’s been brought beautifully up-to-date as a cotton duvet set, available at John Lewis.
Game, set and match
The fresh green and white stripes on this gorgeous hand-painted terracotta dinner plate from Designers Guild will look striking against a smart white tablecloth or on a rustic timber table top. Made in Portugal, the dinnerware can be mixed and matched with plates and bowls with a wider stripe pattern. Nab them now while they’re in the sale.
The subtle matt hue of this Buddy Lamp from Northern Lighting will introduce a stylish splash of colour to a neutral background. Place it in a home office, study or on a dressing table, its directional head makes it ideal for reading and other close tasks, and the handy base container keeps pens, pencils or make-up brushes where you need them, cloudberryliving.co.uk
If you’re hosting tennis-watching parties or other indoor gatherings, a pair of luxurious cocktail chairs will lift the occasion. The Westbury chair from Cox and Cox has a stylish fluted back, solid hardwood frame and upholstery in forest green cotton velvet, combining Art Deco elegance with rich verdant tones for a winning formula.
Colour blocking looks cool and the contrasting style of the My teapot from Jansen+Co brings a contemporary edge to traditional teatime. The mix of white, green and grey is beautifully boosted when teamed with the colourful coordinating tones of the milk jug, sugar bowl and mugs in the collection – an ace serve, for sure.
Pure and simple
White walls and lime-washed timber flooring; the gently pleasing palette of a pale interior creates a feeling of calm that is further enhanced with white furniture and accessories, like this Carlton console table from The White Company. Bring in balance and depth with a monochrome print and natural green plants.
Leaf it out
For an invigorating burst of verdant colour, the Jangala embroidered cushion from Made.com is a great choice. Its luscious leaf pattern can be easily styled with coordinating digitally-printed cushions in the collection, creating layers of leafy tone and texture for a tropical palm house feel that will enliven your living room.
