Shades of Green

I love the color green! It especially makes me think of summer time with the green grass and green trees all around. I came across a variety of green rooms on Better Homes and Gardens website and thought I'd share them with ya.

There are so many greens in the color wheel and each one gives a different vibe to the room. Some are soft and soothing while others are bright and energetic. Here are just a few examples...

Organic Sage Green: Deep sage green on the lower half of these reading nook walls create a cozy ambiance, which is amplified by the warm yellow tones in the lighter celery green above. Other shades of green, such as the aqua pillow and rug, augment the color scheme while multiple patterns enliven the space.

Breezy Grass Green: The playful mood of this dining room proves you don't have to paint the walls to pour on personality. The fresh green palette, perked up with touches of pink, is inspired by the bouquet of hydrangeas at the table's center. Bright drapery panels in a trellis pattern build on the garden design planted by modern floral-print pillows.

Lush Lime Green: This dining room is dazzling with the application of lime-green paint on the walls. The balance adored by all lovers of green is achieved with the bold blocks of color and touches of complementary coral pink. The dining table gets the most colorful attention, with a multicolored stripe treatment that announces the room's color scheme.

Fresh Pistachio Green: Green is the ideal color for an open-plan house because multiple tones blend easily. Vertical taupe-painted paneling provides continuity.

Pure Celery Green: Green walls visually expand the small dimensions of this cottage-style living room. Fabrics in bold-green-and-white prints transform classic furniture styles into pieces with modern flair.

Charming Apple Green: Vibrant toile in an unexpected combo of apple green and red covers beds and draperies to set the color palette for this charming bedroom. Green is the perfect choice for a private retreat such as a bedroom. Additional accents in green and complementary red along with crisp white trim keep the vivid toile from overpowering the space.

Mellow Jade Green: Walls and ceiling bathed in luscious jade green blend this living room into the natural surroundings outside its ample windows. Green has the easygoing ability to mingle with all colors of the spectrum, which makes it a perfect choice as background for a room with colorful furnishings as seen here.

Ripe Avocado Green: Blocks of vivid avocado green brighten this dining room, creating a welcoming spot for meals. Natural light brings out the warmer tones from the yellow end of the green spectrum found in this cheerful color choice.

I just love the variety of greens displayed. My favorite green would probably be the organic shade green. I find it is relaxing and easy to decorate around!

Which is your favorite shade of green? Do you like the bright and bold shades? Or are you more of a toned-down-green person? Pin It
