Green Room Color Inspirations

Green can be such a fresh and soothing color.
It's an easy color on the eyes and can be appropriate
for any room or place in the house. We can start in
the bathroom.

The living room. Love the green striped fabric
on the sofa.

A pastel green for a serene bedroom.

Light green for the kitchen and dining area.

Or a Mix of different greens paired with white
and black which always makes for a dramatic
color combination. The pops of yellow really
make the room fantastic.


A deeper olive green around the staircase.

A fun hang out room inspired by tons of green
and turquoise throw pillows.

Here's a pretty and relaxed cottage styled living
room with graceful green drapes and textured walls.

What a lovely and inviting green for a entrance to a home.

How do you like your green?

My green : like the towel in photo 4, or the walls in the last photo, only slightly darker (except that depends on the colours settings on different computers, I guess)!
Have a lovely weekend Karen.

I always seem to forget about green for some reason. What a shame. I LOVE the green in the kitchen with the chandelier and the heart wrought iron chairs

I love my green! We just started painting our dining room green. I painted the gold chandelier white, and we are going to get a white table to go with our simple, traditional brown chairs. I can't wait to finish it. I would love to have that Sea Horse in there!

I love the serene bedroom green you showed; my challenge now is to figure out how come our guest room does not have that same appeal!

I've always loved that rich sage-y green. Great find! Just FYI I gave you a shout out on Urban Flea for that amazing House and Garden interior you shared with us. Thanks so much for the find!

Nice photos! I've used Benjamin Moore's Frernwood Green, and Dill Pickle in my house...both really pretty! I guess I was going through a green phase

One's more gorgeous than the last!
Green's the color of life and is appropriate anywhere. Funny cause I wouldn't have thought of it for the bath but it makes it cozy.

I love green - I use sage green in my kitchen & a brighter, apple green in my living room. I never get tired of it.

Very cool and pleasant ambiance.

You can add depth to the green notion with photographic prints of wildlife in nature.
