Top Trending Shades of Green
2022 décor predictions have highlighted a wide range of green shades. Assess your current décor to determine the best hue for your unique space. For example, if you have a predominantly warm space, experiment with cool-toned greens like teal and mint. If your space is filled with cool neutrals like grey and taupe, opt for a warmer green like grass green or olive. For a sophisticated touch, a hint of emerald green can blend a classic and contemporary aesthetic.
ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz recommends using green to bring the outside in. 2020 and 2021 were spent mostly indoors, which is why earthy colors are popular for 2022. Celebrate your connection to nature with the color green. Sáenz describes green as a comforting, peaceful shade.
Speaking of earth-inspired hues, preview our blog post on the top trending cool colors for 2022 with this excerpt on “Olive Sprig” by PPG Paints:
“There’s something meditative about olive groves, and their rich, green color. The shade “Olive Sprig” puts a lighter and brighter twist on the classic olive. While dark olive green was hot for 2021, 2022 is adding a softer touch. Pair this color with trendy texture like pampas grass and wicker furniture. Embrace the natural look with wood, stone, and both warm and cool neutrals”
Green Wall Art: Choosing the Right Size
Wall art is a great way to add a splash of green to your space. If you’re on a tight budget but you’re itching to incorporate current trends, wall art is the perfect solution. Affordable and easy to swap out, wall art is a low-cost, low-commitment option. Make the most out of your green artwork by choosing a size that acts as a statement piece. Use your print to tie together your overall color palette, and create a stylish focal point. The biggest mistake beginning designers make is choosing décor that is too small for the wall. Always order a size larger than you initially anticipate for your space.
Discover the perfect wall art dimensions for your room with this equation from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide:
“Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space, the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.”
Green Wall Ideas: Trending Shapes & Layouts
After you select your size, think about which canvas layout will look best on your wall. While green is automatically going to make your space look trendy, you can take the modernism a step further with a trendy canvas set. Our two-piece split canvases are a top choice for 2022 décor due to their rule-busting ability. While wall art used to be hung in only odd numbers, even numbers and symmetry are ultra-popular.
In addition to the layout, consider whether you want a framed or unframed print. The pros and cons are outlined in our expert article on the two distinct styles:
“A framed canvas looks like a single panel canvas, but this style of wall art features a third layer - a wooden frame that creates the illusion that the artwork is floating. A framed print adds a refined touch to your space, and the solid black border keeps the focus on the art itself.
Unframed canvases are the more modern choice. These chic prints are loved for their sleek and contemporary look. The minimalist look blends well with trendy furniture.”
