It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the power of paint, and I’ve written a lot about the topic over the years. Not only is it an affordable way to update your spaces, but the right color can completely change the vibe in your home! I’m especially loving the resurgence of green tones in the kitchen (all cabinets or just an island) as well as deep and moodier versions in home offices or dens. If you’re wanting to try large, pre-painted samples, I’d definitely look into Samplize for picking the perfect green color for your home! Their peel and stick samples are made with real paint (not dyed to mimic the color) so it can definitely help narrow down your top picks. Shortly after we moved in, I painted our master bedroom Sherwin Williams Sea Salt.
Although Sherwin Williams Clary Sage didn’t make the graphic, I felt the color was worth mentioning because I love it especially on kitchen cabinets! If you’re looking for a green with a bit more of a yellow undertone, Behr Avocado Whip is a gorgeous choice.
Sherwin Williams’ Evergreen Fog is a new addition to the list, after being named their 2022 Color of the Year!
It has an irresistibly inviting deepness and weathered familiarity when used in exterior situations, while evoking calm and serenity when used inside. From Benjamin Moore, Palace Green is a mixture of Prussian blue, white and naturally occurring yellows. I love how Benjamin Moore Lafayette Green changes colors throughout the day and dependent upon lighting.
It has a blue undertone, making it appear slightly teal at times and I couldn’t love it more in this kitchen from Rosa Beltran Design. It was used in the 2016 Southern Living Idea House kitchen and they have great examples of the color in both a brighter light as well as low-light situation. A gorgeous gray-green paint color, Sherwin Williams Pewter Green reads like a neutral in many spaces but also adds so much personality! It’s perfect for that modern farmhouse vibe, and is great color choice for cabinets or accent walls and paneling.
If you’re looking for a darker color with a bit more blue undertones, Benjamin Moore Tarrytown Green is a beautiful choice! Since it has a slight blue undertone, it comes across as a pretty true hunter green option (especially the more light you have).
Historically I’ve also loved the Restoration Hardware line of green paints (in the Sage family), but I know those are harder to access for some. I recently created a free paint color organization printable set that I think you will all love!
