More confident with using green in the dining room? Then bring dining table chairs with gorgeous green charm to truly alter the appeal of the setting. This not only gives you an option of using green without actually repainting the walls, it also lets you use the color along with other bright hues. Combine bold green decor finds with delicate drapes in bluish-green for a sophisticated and breezy look! Drapes in darker shades of green are more apt for traditional and rustic dining spaces, and those who want an eclectic look will do well to pick ones with bold, geometric prints.

An obvious and easy way to add green to the dining room is by simply starting with the walls, and most homeowners obviously seem to prefer this uncomplicated approach. Yet carefully choose the shade of green that you want for the dining room walls, as only a color that you ‘absolutely love’ will work in the long run. An effervescent and vibrant shade of jewel-toned green might look amazing right now, but you could get bored with the look pretty soon. One of the advantages with green is that darker shades of the color seem as beautiful and apt as lighter hues even in small dining spaces.

This definitely is our favorite little way of adding green to the dining room, and it truly will bring a ‘breath of fresh air’ indoors. Add a wonderful potted plant or two in the lonely, forgotten dining room corner, and you will quickly fall in love with the look. Tiny herb planters on the dining table also work beautifully, and if you want to add more greenery, then maybe you can even switch to an exotic tropical style indoors. Another way of adding greenery would be to open up the room with glass walls so that the fabulous backyard or natural canopy outside becomes a backdrop for the dining space.

Bright greens such as Chartreuse are currently ‘in’, and they do enliven the dining room and fill it with an air of anticipation. Yet these colors might seem a touch overwhelming when used for the walls. The solution here is to keep the walls neutral and to add such dark, bolder shades of green using area rugs. Painting the ceiling is another fun idea for those who wish to go beyond the obvious! Lighter shades of green for the ceiling coupled with yellow or white walls are perfect if you are trying to shape a farmhouse or a vintage-style dining room.

The Gamble, Poynter and Morris Rooms are interlinked rooms that made up the restaurant of the South Kensington Museum. These rooms are today again being used as part of the Museum’s Café. Although they were functional spaces, the Refreshment Rooms belonged to the Museum’s public face, so they were also given some extremely lavish decorations. The westernmost room, originally called the Green Dining Room (now the Morris Room), was designed by William Morris and remains today as an important feature. The deep colours of the scheme show that at the time he was still under the influence of the Gothic Revival. He embellished the walls with Elizabethan-style panelling below a section of green plaster with a low relief of olive branches, while the stained-glass windows bore female figures painted by Edward Burne-Jones and Philip Webb.

In our Hamptons Showhouse, a double shot of a pretty pattern shells out major style: designer Meg Braff paired embroidered scallop bedding with a graphic, reverse-color wall pattern from her own collection. Differences in scale brilliantly play a figurative pattern against a more subtle abstract one. Bright accents on the bedside table and patterned green tape on the white Roman shade stick to the room’s go-green theme.

Wallpaper and grasscloth wallcoverings not only add color to the room, they also add exciting, fun patterns and another layer of texture. With wallpapers making a comeback of sorts in 2014, this is another hip, cool way to add green to the dining space, and you can start off by wallpapering a little nook before committing to a more extensive project. Patterned green wallpaper works best in traditional, midcentury and Mediterranean-style spaces. But you can even try it in a restrained fashion in modern settings if you really love the look.
