I found myself buying a sleeveless olive green military style jacket this month to wear from now through fall. I’ve always loved the color, in fashion and interiors too. Olive tree branches are a go to botanical for me, we have five in our yard and every other month I’ll place branch clippings in a vase, they last several weeks and look beautiful on the dining room table with the light filtering through them.
Pantone has included “Dried Herb” as part of the fall fashion palette, it’s an earthy and muted shade of olive green so it’s not surprising we are seeing olive green popping up among some early fall collections.
Olive is a common color in my area, much of the landscape is planted with olive trees and so many of the glass wine bottles are this color too.
You can’t go wrong with a dramatic deep green curtain, we have Scarlett O’Hara to thank for that.
Olive green is divine on cabinets from contemporary to traditional, it pairs well with brass, nickel, or oil rubbed bronze hardware. A muted green is at the top of my list in cabinet colors for an upcoming remodeling project.
