If you haven't already guessed from my recent mood board inspirations, I am a major fan of the outdoors and enjoy bringing it inside. Forests, grassy fields, rolling hills, ferns, and flower stems are all green in color. Green comes in so many distinct tones that it may create a range of emotions in a room. Green, on the other hand, is calming and upbeat, serene and energetic! Green is the most natural color in the rainbow, so if you like hiking, being outside in the sun, and taking in the scenery, green could be the color for you! Are you looking for a way to incorporate more green into your home? Are you looking for a certain shade of green? What colors should you choose to complement the mint green walls? We've got all the green decoration ideas you'll ever need!

Myths and Facts About Green

Shades of Green

Green, as I mentioned in the myths/facts section, has the most hues of any color in the rainbow, making it tough to decide which is your favorite! Personally, I like mint green, chartreuse, and Kelly green; nevertheless, I believe that when it comes to green, you can't go wrong! The fact that the bulk of the names above are related to plant life, from fruits and vegetables like lime and pear to herbs like basil and mint and animals like parakeets and crocodiles, says a lot.

Shades of Green

The most popular greens to decorate with 

Mint Green, a pastel choice that works well with feminine spaces, the English cottage style, and shabby chic decor.

Lime Green, which works especially well in pops of color in contemporary and eclectic spaces. Lime green works much like yellow.

Kelly Green, a beautiful bold green that works best in bursts. Kelly green is perfect for a modern home if you're looking for a bold color choice to repaint a dresser or an accent wall!

Olive Green, a more traditional green that works well as a neutral. This darker, muted tone green works well in larger doses!

Colors to Pair with Green

Because green is such a versatile color, it pairs well with a variety of other colors. I'll use two generic colors of green for my color pairing examples: mint green and Kelly green. I'm going for a subtle, gentle green and a darker, bolder green! You may also choose different green rugs to give the room a glossy effect, such as dark green, mint green, and olive green rugs.

Colors to Pair with Mint Green

For a vibrant, modern vibe, gold is a terrific color to match with mint green. This warm metallic contrasts beautifully with the chilly mint green, producing a simple yet unique design. The modern nursery below, with mint green and gold accents and a recurring triangular pattern on the green wall decor, is one of my favorites. Despite the fact that gold is only used in limited amounts, it is a fantastic accent color! On the other hand, if you want to make your mint green feel light, airy, and feminine, combine it with other pastels, such as bright pink. Mint green and pink are a bright, joyful, and very attractive combination! Grey is my particular favorite color to combine with mint green. Both hues are cold, soft, and muted, and when combined, they give off a light, airy vibe.

Colors to Pair with Kelly Green

Kelly green is a considerably more daring hue. Unlike the mint green combinations, which are light and airy, the Kelly green combinations are bold and trendy! Kelly green with cobalt or navy blue is a bold combination that is absolutely stunning! If you want to tone down your Kelly green rather than amp it up even more, mixing it with browns/woods is a fantastic method to do so. The bright Kelly green is much more tolerable in a space when it is balanced with a complementary color, as you can see in the lovely kitchen below. You may also go for a bold and gorgeous look by mixing Kelly green with black and white. This combo is fresh, varied, and unexpectedly good.

Why not use green rugs in your bedroom because it is such a relaxing color? It's ideal for your bedchamber! Here are some ideas of how you may use green to create a relaxing resting area or a joyful, vibrant room in your bedroom! The room upstairs has a lot of green in it! Because of the bright green on the walls, this is a really relaxing area. The leafy bedding is also one of my favorites; it actually pulls the outside in! (And don't forget about the amazing plant in the corner.) The room above is an excellent illustration of how to use green into the decor of a relaxing bedroom.

Green Kitchen

Green is also a fantastic kitchen color! (Let's be honest: it works in any room.) Green may work well in a modern, minimalist kitchen like the one seen here. The combination of solid green walls, white cabinets, and floating shelves creates a stunning backdrop for a creative kitchen environment. A green backsplash is a terrific way to make a green commitment! The sea green backsplash above looks amazing when paired with very simple cabinets and a white countertop. With the plants all over the kitchen, it looks fantastic.

Green Living Rooms

In the eclectic space, I adore the green sofa. If there was too much of this dark green in the space, it would be too dark, but the white walls and bright accessories help to balance it out. I'm going to promote my own design because, well, why not? To create a nature-inspired living room, I selected dark greens. A wonderful space might be created by combining these green pieces with a bright white or cream wall.
