The Best Green Paint Colors


There’s been a huge resurgence in the trend for green paint colors over the past few years, in particularly sage and moody shades of green which look amazing on both walls and cabinets.

Sherwin Williams Clary Sage may just be the perfect green. It’s soft, peaceful and inviting. Clary Sage is a great wall and cabinet color, but looks really beautiful as a front door color, too!

Retreat is a slightly grayed-out sage green that adds a modern look to any space.

Essex Green by Benjamin Moore is the perfect shade of dark hunter green for an accent wall. It looks amazing paired with warm woods and leather, and is a color that appeals to both men and women.

Salamander is the darkest of the greens that I’m featuring today. It’s a perfect compliment to honey oak furniture, trim and doors and adds drama and moodiness wherever it’s painted.

While Backwoods is still a dark green paint color, it has a fresher appearance to it. It works well alongside Benjamin Moore White Dove to create a wall board and batten wall treatment, but would also be beautiful as a cabinet color or on a full wall.

I don’t usually feature Dunn Edwards paint colors, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to showcase these green kitchen cabinets. This shade of green looks perfect with the warm brass cabinet hardware and clean white countertop and backsplash.
