Here are examples of the best interior and exterior paint colors using green for your next home improvement project. Here is a list of the colors I heard over and over plus a surprising popular green in the Nashville area that isn't even on the Sherwin Williams chart. Each hue will have a photo featuring a person who has used that color and how they used it from green walls to the exterior.
Light green can be used on cabinets, accent walls, exterior, doors, or whole rooms. Let's look at popular light green paint colors and how they are used in these homes. One of my favorite all times shows on television is This Old House and they knocked this kitchen renovation out of the park.
If you are a lover of green then you will adore this Clary Sage SW 6178 paint color. Green is such a great cool hue color and it matches so many things. Krafted Renovations did a beautiful job using this light green color by Sherwin Williams in this dining room.
In fact, it is so trendy until we wrote a whole post featuring examples of using Sherwin Williams sea salt and Sand and Sisal was one. If you're wrestling over which green paint to settle on, you can't get much better than the January 2022 Color of the Month from Sherwin Williams, Evergreen Fog. The shiplap accent wall ties in lovely with her bedding and the black hexagon lined pattern.
When we gave my daughter's room a makeover, we were looking for the perfect paint to tie in the accents on the bedding. We browsed through the popular Sherwin Williams green paint colors and came across Escape Gray SW 6185 and knew it was the perfect fit. Dark greens are rich in tone and give a feeling of nature and wealth. These colors look amazing on cabinets, front doors, shutters, and accent walls. Savas Construction captured a beautiful modern farmhouse feeling by painting ripe olive on these cabinets and kitchen islands. Great ways to use this olive green color are on front doors, shutters, accent walls, under the chair rails, trim, and cabinets.
You can use a dark green color on interior walls but you will need much natural light to keep it feeling like a cave unless it is your media room. Pewter Green looks so pretty in this laundry room and it goes well with this arts and crafts style wallpaper. Isle of Pine was brought up the most as a dark green when I called stores throughout America.
I saw so many different ways to use this color but when I came across this photo pinned by Sherwin Williams I couldn't resist sharing. If you're looking for a Sherwin Williams green paint color that will help you with a statement piece in any room we have you covered. I love the story my friend Alieta Casey tells of this piece.
The assumption when Alieta bought this dresser, was that she would paint it a shade of gray and while that wouldn't have been wrong, this green color gives the piece so much personality. Sherwin Williams Rosemary SW 6187 is what Kendi Everyday painted her kitchen cabinetry and island. This warm color looks like you picked a sprig of fresh rosemary. Paired with wood flooring, Rosemary green gives off a great earthy feel to the room.
This lovely accent wall not only has a fun pattern with wainscoting, it is also a fantastic deep green called Shade Grown SW 6188. It fits in a neutral category and could be made masculine by pairing it with blacks, whites and woods.
Or you could give it a feminine feel by adding a touch of pink in the room. But for now, let's talk about this gorgeous shade of green that is called Boxwood in the milk paint line.
The cool thing about Boxwood is that Marian included the formula in her blog post in case you want to have Sherwin Williams mix it.
There is a photo of the formula on the can of paint she had mixed in her blog post called Boxwood Recipe and Glass Hardware. Now let's look at another fun discovery I found when I talked to a Sherwin Williams employee in Nashville. This green is a fantastic color for shutters or front doors which is why I couldn't wait to share with you this beautiful photo by The Potted Boxwood.
If you want a unique custom Sherwin Williams color that only you will have in your neighborhood then this might be your shade of green. Years ago jewel tones were popular and hunter green was the coveted color. I used Benjamin Moore Essex Green many times on the interior and exterior of the home.
Recently while visiting The Grove Museum in Tallahassee, Florida I saw these shutters and it reminded me of Essex Green. My favorite place to use it was on a front door and shutters but people used it on accent walls, under chair rails, cabinets, and even a trim color. In her mudroom, we built a floating shelf unit to bring style and organization to this entryway from her garage.
If you are looking for a darker tone green Behr paint Vine Leaf is a great color to consider. There is one thing I noticed while writing this post on popular Sherwin Williams green paint colors.
Light and dark green paint colors look amazing with any wood tones.
