6 Shades of Green for the Living Room

Get green for the living room: here are six ways to use various shades of green for this part of the home.


Lime
Hip and contemporary, this eye-popping shade of lime green walls would work best with a white ceiling, white sofas, and yellow, red, and orange accents. Pair this combo with a light wooden floor for some warmth, and a black coffee table to act as a counterpoint to the bright and vivid hues.

Spring green
Try your hand at the bohemian: cobble together this colorful, textured living room by pairing warm, brownish red furniture with a light spring green wall. Best paired with a ceiling made of rich, laquered wood. Opt for a cozy feel. Throw in a couple of indoor plants and floral arrangements. 

Asparagus
A pale shade of asparagus green on the walls cobbled together with various accents, textures and patterns: black, yellow, and pink may sound unusual side-by-side with this color, but try it out and see how it pays off.

Olive
Kick back amidst a cozy, elegant, countryside atmosphere with light olive green walls paired with a rich brown wooden floor and beige or off-white sofas and armchairs. Use ambient lighting to make it feel even more relaxing.

Mint
Get mint green for the walls, a light brown carpet for the floor, some bright wooden furniture, and red leather sofas and seats. The overall effect: a tad countryside, a touch whimsical, and absolutely charming. Throw in a few indoor plants to complete the effect.

Grass
Feel like adding a touch of the outdoors in? Fake grass carpets exist. Use one as an accent piece beneath the coffee table. But take note that it's not for everyone -- or for every kind of living room, for that matter. Fake grass rugs and carpets work best within a modern living room with a neutral white, black, and gray pallete.
