2023 has seen us turn all kinds of shades of green. From olive green to bold and deep emerald, decorating with green has been all the rage.

As the new year approaches, new shades of the verdant color are emerging. An especially notable moment was when Jonathan Adler posted the latest iteration of their Bonaparte chair in a cool grassy green on Instagram. Interior designers and design lovers alike rushed to the comments to express their admiration for the shade.

At Homes & Gardens, we happen to agree with them. Even better, we have it on authority from our design experts that we're going to be seeing a lot more of this green color trend in the coming year. Below, the experts weigh in on the reasons why they love this trend.

1. Experts love grass green because it's fun

Grass green is an excellent design choice because it adds a bit of whimsy to a space. 'Clients love incorporating green in their spaces, but that's usually in the form of forest green or emerald green ... grass is a fun twist on green and instantly adds a playful pop,' says Michal Rubin, principal interior decorator at MR Interiors

She continues, 'Implementing grass green in your home gives you an immediate sense of joy and lightheartedness. It's also completely tasteful and luxe when done in the right way.'

Sophisticated and fun? This green room idea is surely here to stay.

2. Designers like grass green because it's calming

'Grass' green is named after its plant-based counterpart: grass. Due to its natural origins, this shade of green reminds us of the outdoors and can promote a sense of tranquility. 'The benefits of implementing this color trend are a feeling of calm and
being at one with nature,' says NYC-based interior designer Joe Cangelosi.

His company won the Best in Manhattan Interior Design Award in 2016, 2017, and 2022. 

These benefits are enhanced by the versatility of grass green, which pairs well with calming neutrals for an even more relaxed feel. Joe continues, 'Green is so easy to pair with neutrals such as creams and taupes. Together these colors promote a very calm vibe.'

Experts say that this color is unexpected, giving it a unique visual appeal. 

New York-based design expert Elizabeth Grace says, 'What is it that draws people toward the grass green color trend with such fervor?' Elizabeth answers her own question stating: 'It's a combination of factors that converge to create an irresistible allure. At its core, this trend embodies a refreshing departure from the ordinary. It beckons individuals to embrace novelty and invigorate their living spaces with a dash of the unexpected.'

This trend taps into our innate desire for balance and harmony in our surroundings, providing a visual respite from the chaos of the outside world.'
