When it comes to soothing hues, few evoke an atmosphere as calming as that of a muted pastel green. Closely associated with nature, this colour has always been the go-to colour of choice for homeowners looking to bring the outdoors in.

Engineered stone manufacturer Cosentino recently unveiled its latest shade of green, inspired by the colour of the the seaweed visible at the shallows of the Mediterranean sea, and Posidonia Green is quickly working its way into the hearts of interior designers and homeowners, becoming the popular hue of the season.

Aside from the ocean, Posidonia Green is also reminiscent of olive fruits, laden heavy with oil and ripening on twisted branches, representing the best of what mother nature has to offer. As with many popular colours of the season, we are seeing this green in a toned-down version, with the slightest hint of grey.

Applied onto walls, this colour adds a touch of cosiness and warmth in the evening light. It is a hue that is not only mesmerising, but sensual and visually enticing as well.

For those who are apprehensive about its lasting nature, compliment with a mix of natural textures, such as bamboo and wood, to create a look that will remain beautiful for the years to come.
