Dark Green Rooms

As summer gives way to autumn, a fresh coat of paint can help cozy up interiors. However, many homeowners are opting for moodier hues like darker green, such as dining rooms, powder baths and bedrooms. Dark green walls can create an intimate yet inviting space where relaxation is at its core – choosing the appropriate shade and pairing it with complementary accent colors are keys to successfully pulling off this hued trend – read on for some examples from designers who successfully embrace its hue!

Step one in designing a dark green room is to analyze its natural lighting. Determine whether the light source is cooler or warmer and then choose an aesthetically balancing shade such as cool-toned blues that go well with dark green, while warmer-toned browns pair beautifully with warm green hues. Next, coordinate fabrics, curtains and bedding in order to maintain balance – Kate Marker Interiors went with fresh, leafy olive green walls which she balanced out with duvet cover, white linen curtains and wood carved headboard for an overall harmonious result.

If the thought of painting an entire room dark green seems daunting, try choosing a smaller space like this powder room designed by Fabrizio Casiraghi and painted in Farrow & Ball’s Sap Green hue. Its glossy surface helps bounce light around, making the small bathroom seem larger. Plus, adding darker tones adds character and provides a unique flair – especially with brass hardware and black mirror accessories as finishing touches for an elegant aesthetic.

Dark green rooms can be decorated easily if you use neutral colors as the basis. Pale, earthy hues like white, beige and taupe create an ideal background to offset this moody hue. For a bolder style, pair dark green walls with yellow or gold highlights for added vibrancy or combine a palette of greys and browns instead.

A deep green wall serves as the star attraction in this modern living room, drawing attention away from the clean lines of its furniture, such as its sectional and wood furniture, to woven baskets, classic gingham pillows and simple embroidered bedding that keep their decor minimal to allow the wall color to truly stand out.

Textured wallpaper brings depth and dimension to this bedroom, pairing well with its natural wood carved headboard and natural rattan pendant lamp. The blend of greens is offset by warm yellow-toned light from a wooden table lamp as well as floral patterns in artwork and bedding. If you’re uncomfortable trying out dramatic colors in your bedroom, try testing out dark hues in smaller spaces like powder rooms where dramatic hues won’t overwhelm as easily – consider painting a built-in bookshelf or cabinet in dark green for instantaneous decorative impact; once complete add horizontal and vertically stacked books as well as decorative objects and sentimental items to complete the curated look of curated shelving space!
