Interior Design Goes Green – Literally

Going green is big in design lately, and not just in terms of sustainability and eco-friendliness. We’ve also been seeing the color green all over the interior design world, including in some of our favorite shelter magazines. Elle Décor recently did a feature article on using green in home decorating.

At Home on the Range, we love incorporating green into our interiors as it works well with the natural materials often used in Western Design style and helps to bring the outdoors into the home. We find that when there is snow outside for 5 months out of the year, we crave greens to warm things up inside! Here’s a look at some of our interiors that showcase green.

The antiqued green finish on the kitchen cabinets in this Western Homestead Ranch at Lake Catamount was custom done by D. Andrew Cates, who is renowned for his reproduction furniture and wonderful finishes.

The rich blue-green of the bed skirt complements the walls in this Mountain Arts and Crafts-style bedroom, and the white trim adds to the mountain cottage feel.

We carried the green to the walls of the suite’s bathroom as well, and again accented it with white trim, cabinetry and mirrors.

In this bedroom we used a soft gray-green paint on the wainscot paired with cherry trim to create a cozy look.

Shades of green will continue to be big in design this fall, and they work in every room. How will you incorporate the color into your home?

I realize this is nearly three years ago, but I'd love to know the paint color you used in that bathroom. It is stunning!
