Gucci have just created a dining room to die for in their multi-floor Palazzo in Florence, and guess what? It’s green.

This Cement Style Tall Planter is a real hero piece for the floor, whilst clear glass vases and terrariums provide a slightly more elegant form of display for focal areas such as the coffee table.
Natural wood and industrial style metal furniture work best when styling your home with this lively tone. Untreated pale wood furniture, such as this Bronx Small Sideboard, keep the mood light and bring a real sense of nature to the space. Stylish white metal and rattan pieces also look great mixed in to this look.
