In the March 2012 issue, House Beautiful declared green as “the neutral that goes with everything!”. Because it is a color that can be dressed up or dressed down, it is very versatile. There are many shades that can be paired with a variety of different colors. A sophisticated environment can be created when combined with other classic neutrals like white, black or chocolate brown. A space can be lively and energetic when paired with other vibrant hues. When considering which shade of green to use in a room, think about the mood you want to create and how people will use the room. Lime and chartreuse are modern and vibrant, blue-greens are cool and calming, olive tones are rustic and cozy.
Here are some green color combinations that work well together:
Lime green + pink
Palm green + burnt orange
Kelly green + navy + crisp white
Pale aqua + raspberry
Sage green + silver
Small doses of citrus add a punch of color and balance to the brown and white color scheme.
Glazed cabinets in moss green create a vintage look along with the crisp white bead-board back splash.
