Nature has always been an endless source of inspiration for us – especially when it comes to color. So it should come as no surprise that the newest shade we’ve fallen for comes from – what else- a tree. It’s a color that’s relaxed, tranquil, and totally natural. Say hello to Eucalyptus Green.
As part of our color curation series, today we’re exploring a shade of green named after one of Australia’s most famous exports – eucalyptus. Native to down under, there are over 900 species of eucalyptus trees, some growing up to 100 feet tall. (The name eucalyptus comes from the ancient Greek words eu meaning “good” and kalypto meaning “cover”.) And besides being known as a koala’s favorite snack, the plant is most associated with its calming scent and unique shade of leaves. Ranging from silver dollar sized, to slender, to long and oval-shaped, eucalyptus leaves are instantly recognizable (and perfect for an easy and fragrant arrangement in your home).
That trademark shade of green – with undertones of silver, grey, and blue – can feel equal parts serene, rejuvenating, and invigorating. It’s a richer and more blue tone than sage green, moodier than seafoam and celadon. With a calming quality that evokes nature, optimism, and growth, and recently it’s been popping up everywhere in interiors. From bathrooms to kitchens, furniture, lighting, and tile, eucalyptus green is a versatile shade that’s easy to incorporate into your space – and we’re showing how.
