A Modern Living Room decor with Olive Green: be inspired by our selection


With Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore, Behr, PPG and Farrow & Ball all announcing different shades of green paints to be their colours for 2022, there’s no doubt we are in for a season of simplistic, nature-inspired interior images popping up across the industry. Even though each of the colours mentioned above feels on point if we are talking about interior trends for 2022 we believe there is one more shade of green that needs to be brought into the spotlight – Olive green.

To be fair, olive green is more than a trend. It’s a forever-in-style design icon, powerful enough to bring depth and a sense of elegance into any space. 


Decorating with olive green

Olive green can double as both an accent colour and a neutral, and, depending on the environment, either make the space more relaxed or give it a spark. Versatile enough to feel at home in any of the popular interior styles today, olive green is often featured in mid-century modern, rustic farmhouse, retro, Scandi or even traditional interiors. 

Other than being a team player, what makes olive green feel so appealing in 2022 is its ability to signal hope for renewal in the struggling post-pandemic world. Being closer to nature and protecting the planet are becoming increasingly important, and the interior colour palettes follow the pulse of society.

Modern living room design in Olive Green


Security, grounding and tranquillity, with a lot of charm – this is how I would describe this reminiscent living room mood board. Or maybe a subtle throwback to the Japanese design, with strong Scandi bones and a 70’s soul?

For a sophisticated ambience, I introduced velvet, a marble lamp and some elegant black accents. The rug, coffee table and pendant are there to dial up the texture and warmth introduced with warm wood tones. It’s some kind of vintage meets retro, meets contemporary aesthetic, and I just love it! How about you?
