Tasting Notes: DH Grass Green

While lush shades such as DH Grass Green have been trending of late, they’ve been traditional since the Victorian era, when deep greens were used to decorate people’s grand homes and demonstrate their wealth. Evoking all the beauty of botany, the soft, elegant shade calls to mind nature and the world around us, creating a feeling of vitality and wellbeing wherever it’s used in the house.

Heritage Living Room Dh Grass Green 2

Natural beauty

Sure to stop thumbs on social feeds, DH Grass Green in this spectacular living room looks sensational, painted on the walls and woodwork for a luxurious lesson in colour-saturation. An inspired choice for the space, the effect is truly immersive, drawing you into the décor as if you were walking beneath the dappled canopy of a deep, dark forest. Tonal furnishings and accessories are complemented by stand-out neutral pieces such as the rug and period features like the stone fireplace.

Secret garden

Soft and serene, DH Grass Green makes for a soothing backdrop in a dining room, while connecting it to the colours in the garden through the floor-to-ceiling doors. Bringing the outside in, the gorgeous green walls have been coordinated with the skirting and ceiling in delicate Wishbone White, finished with an upcycled dresser in tonal Lead Grey. Cosying up the space is furniture in warm woods, while brass accents add contemporary glamour.

Green dream

Sleep amongst nature with DH Grass Green painted on your bedroom walls and over period detailing such as panelling. Creating a cocooning effect, the hue envelops and comforts, while being cosy in the winter and cool in the summer. Coordinate with a crisp neutral such as Wishbone White for the cornice and ceiling, and something clean and fresh like Fennel White for the door, with just a hint of green itself.

Looking radiant

A chill-out zone can be created using the therapeutic qualities of DH Grass Green on the walls in a chic home office. A ceiling in fresh Wishbone White makes for perfect coordination up above, while woodwork in deep DH Slate provides a tonal accent down below. Pulling the whole scheme together is a cabinet painted in warm Pale Nutmeg.

Give it the green light

Add warmth to a cool hallway by teaming silvery Green Slate above the dado rail with vibrant DH Grass Green beneath. Not only does the combination brighten things up, but it also elongates the space, making it appear bigger than it is. Elsewhere, China White on the skirting, door and ceiling brings everything together, while luxurious Forest Grey on the staircase really makes an entrance.

Commit to colour

Not only does DH Grass Green look beautiful, but it feels gorgeous under your fingertips, with a velvety matt finish for walls and an eggshell with a soft sheen for woodwork. Radiant and long-lasting, team with tonal in dark and sage greens; co-ordinate with whites and greys; or add a designer flourish with a pop of pink. Try it today by ordering a tester or commit to colour by choosing a can.
