Brit Decor: It's a green thing

With the whirlwind of horticultural excellence that is the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, about to be dismantled again for another year, it has been all about green here at the cottage. I make no secret about my passion for gardening and in many ways I am living the dream with my very own cottage garden to play in and, of course, to relax in also.

Inspired by Chelsea's amazing display of creativity and expert know-how, I decided to give our living room a little green-themed update this week. This is the beauty of interiors styling - in many instances it only takes a handful of considered objects to totally transform the look and feel of a space. You can turn a scheme's palette from hot to cold or from neutral to multi-colour in an instant.

For the living room I wanted to keep my theme fresh and zingy with a palette of greens in an array of shades, shapes and textures. I find that books, asides from a good read, also offer a great quick-fix for adding colour and interest whilst houseplants, a big favourite here on Brit Decor, bring architectural shapes and texture into the mix. The fresh green tones also work well against the brilliant white walls to create a light and uplifting scheme.

Who knows what my next theme might be...happy styling folks!
