Video: Wall design living room - the urban jungle look
Green, greener, greenest! The trend around green plants, wallpapers and furniture is still very popular! We show you how you can implement the trend in your home.
Do you like the colors yellow and blue? Then you will probably also love shades of green - because this secondary color is made up of exactly these shades. Green comes in many different tones: from pale pastel green to a strong emerald tone. Every color has a certain impact on our well-being - so green has an invigorating, harmonizing, refreshing and at the same time calming effect.
What do we associate with the color green?
Lush meadows, forests and fields, spring and summer and therefore joy and harmony. It is all the more wonderful to integrate these aspects into your own home and to feel comfortable in the long term. There are many ways to decorate your home with this color. Be it just a green wall, lots of green plants or a little more with green pieces of furniture and decorative elements.
You can create a greenery environment with just a few accessories such as pillows and pictures.

The urban jungle look
If you want to follow the jungle-like greenery trend, you should buy the following: Plants, plants, plants! Permanent green plants are best suited here - such as: succulents, bonsai trees, yuccas, violin fig, Kentia palm, green lily, window leaf (Monstera), ornamental banana, agave, arrow leaf, birch fig or elephant foot.
The following plants are suitable for wet rooms, such as the bathroom: aloe vera, maidenhair fern, moss herb or money tree.
Modern urban jungle look
Color and material mix: Different shades of green can also be combined well. The light green velvet sofas harmonize well with the forest green wall.
You don't always have to paint entire walls. Greenery wallpaper on a wall is often sufficient to integrate the shower-like style.
Dark tones such as forest or olive green should only be used extensively in large rooms, otherwise it will quickly become oppressive. Otherwise, this color combination has a calming and harmonious effect, especially in combination with wood.

You can create a little holiday feeling with a motif wallpaper in greenery look, like here with palm trees.
A wall in a Dschugel look: if you keep the rest of the interior subtle with light colors, a wallpapered wall can only really appear.
Strong emerald green in combination with shades of blue creates a pleasant and slightly opulent atmosphere.
A rich and matt mint green can be perfectly combined with yellow tones. This is how you create a very happy and summery space. If you like it a bit more discreet, combine colors like anthracite with many green plants.

The comeback of the houseplant
"Every plant needs its own room and every room needs its own plant", says the author Ulrike Herzog in her book "Green Living". Not only does it hit the greenery with plant lovers - the urban jungle hype is still on a growth path and many allotment gardeners and bloggers present either their small city gardens or their abundant green apartments. It says: More is more - at least as far as plants and shades of green are concerned. Three big yuccas in front of a dark green wall? Of course! Green in combination with green? Yes, please!
Furnishing and decorating with plants: In the book "Green Living", author Ulrike Herzog gives many tips for a green home.
