Here’s How to Go Green in the Living Room

Posted by

Commonly associated with the beauty of lush grass and trees, shades of green have been found to relax and calm the mind — making them a popular choice for serene living spaces. Whether it’s with an accent piece or you’re going for a full monochrome look, there are endless ways to bring greens into a living space — most notably with a fresh coat of paint. You can also weave in a pop of color with a green velvet sofa, decorate with houseplants or layer in green accents like living room curtains, carpets and throw pillows. If your interior doesn’t yet feature a touch of green, we’ve rounded up gorgeous green living room ideas that will convince you to redecorate.

Greens are incredibly versatile and pair beautifully with almost any color — from whites, creams and grays to blues, pinks and reds. Depending on your existing color palette and design style, you may choose to embrace a moody deep tone, vibrant hue (like lime green) or a neutral green (some shades can appear almost white). Sneak peek: we’ve included a ton of living room paint color suggestions.

As you scroll these stunning interiors, you’ll find styling tips like how to create contrast with other bold hues, add gold fixtures and decorate with complementary decor. For our crafters, we sprinkled in a few DIY home decor projects (like a genius accent wall).
