Colour Study: Green

Known to symbolise and represent health and new beginnings, green generates a feeling of renewed energy. In this colour study, we take a look at a number of green accents that can elevate any room.

Colour Study: Green
Interiors painted green offer a natural sense of reflection and allow us to blend our indoor and outdoor living zones. But opting for a rich and vibrant green wall can limit your options when it comes to selecting lighting, homewares and furniture. We find that offsetting the viridescence of a space with the warm naturality of timber is a great option. Marz Designs timber lighting products are available in a number of different timber varieties including walnut, a deep tone that gives off a classical elegance against coloured walls.
On the other hand, if working with a neutral palette, curating a selection of green accents can intimate a connection to nature. Below are some of Marz Designs’ favourite lighting, furniture and homeware products that sit on the green spectrum. Check out how these shades of sage, olive, moss and more work effortlessly with neutral spaces.

Marz Designs Terra Lighting Range


Our Terra lighting range explores a number of different variations in form and colour. From the Terra 0 Short Articulating to the Terra 1.5 Pendant, each iteration presents a ceramic fitting with unique differences that are organically created during the handmade and kiln firing processes.

Terra’s ceramic sage component is popular across all wall, ceiling and pendant lighting options and perfectly suited to any interior space where a touch of verdancy is desired.

The Terra Lighting Range is available in a choice of Olive, Slate, Vanilla Bean and Clay, with brass, brushed black or white satin fittings. Find out more about this product here.

Marz Designs Bermuda Wall Light – Moss


The colour green is known to provide a lift of natural tone throughout an interior. In conjunction with tone, our Bermuda Wall Light in Moss also adds an earthy materiality through its marble hue. 

This sculptural light is an attractive centrepiece when in use, and when switched off, permeating a terrene interplay of exaggerated geometries. Learn more about the design process behind the Bermuda Lighting range here.

This functional design, in its muted mangrove tone, is calming and decoratively shaped to rest on the bookshelf as much as the by the garden.

The Skipping Stone Vase is a bold and natural addition to any space, and much like the Bermuda Wall Light above, elicits a tranquil yet stormy ambience through both materiality and tone.
