There’s no doubt that olive green is having its moment as the it-girl colour of the year. Whether it’s a soft sage for your bathroom or a khaki kitchen, the shade is here to slay. But this spring, it’s clear that olive green is the green queen of interiors. Bask in this earthy, Mediterranean hue that feels warm to the touch and sun-kissed.

If you’re a fan of neutrals but want to add more colour to your space, olive green is your golden, or in this case, green ticket. Dip your toes in the water with a throw or cushion or give your bedding a fresh new look. It’s calming yet grounded, and perfect for adding depth and richness. If an olive looks that good in a martini, just imagine what it can do for your home.

What colour is olive green?

Olive green is a deep yellow-green shade. Technically an autumnal colour, it’s just as perfect in the summer and spring as it complements a variety of rich and bright hues, including browns, pinks, reds and purples. When it comes to interiors, olive green exudes sophistication when paired with luxurious natural materials like wood, marble and brass.
