It’s no secret that blue is my favourite colour (I explain why I love this colour so much in this article), however there is another colour that I have been loving A LOT for quite a while – a few years at least, so I know it’s not just a passing fad – and that is olive green. This colour has been increasingly making its way into my wardrobe. Really, I’m surprised I haven’t brought more of this colour into my interiors yet. When the building work for my home renovation is done, I will definitely be fixing this. Olive green works beautifully with lots of other colours; I especially love it with black and white, pale pink, red, blue, gold and wood tones. Here are 10 inspiring spaces rocking olive tones:

This is another image of the restaurant above: La Forêt Noire, designed by Claude Cartier. This might just be the sexiest restaurant I’ve ever seen. Velvet, curves, black and gold… a total showstopper!
What do you think of olive green in interiors? Does it remind you of decades gone by or do you love the modern take on this colour?
