Lavender Hill Interiors May 2023
COLOUR OF THE MONTH: Green
Green is a colour that is seen to positively affect thinking and physical and mental health. Green can help put people at ease in a new place and adds a calming effect due to its association with nature. For this reason, designers often feature green in public spaces such as restaurants and hotels.

As green has such natural ties with nature, it's a decor colour that can enhance a space and encourage relaxation and calmness.
The core of Hamptons design revolves around using neutrals and natural materials, with pops of colour interspersed. The colours that add a bit of a punch are usually blues because they’re reminiscent of the sea.
Green allows you to infuse organic inspiration into your home.
For example, the contrast between the green beach dune grass along the coastline and the blue sea is a signature of coastal communities.
Green is unique and fresh, but still in line with the inspiration derived from nature that’s such a key part of Hamptons décor.
