A touch of summer indoors

Thu, Aug 20, 2009

Green is one of the most difficult colours to decorate with. From choosing just the right paint colour to the perfect green accessory, green is one of those colours that you either love or you hate. But now more than ever, bold green can be found everywhere, from the designer runways to the home decor fabric houses. And no matter which colour trend expert you talk to, intense green is one of the hottest colours right now.
