If there’s one question that I get asked more than any other question it is about paint color! Sometimes choosing colors can be tricky and if there is one shade that has completely taken the design world by storm it’s green! So today I’ve rounded up the best green paint colors to use in your home!

Some of you may not know but green is my favorite color so when I began seeing kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms done up in this sultry color my green lovin heart skipped a beat.

Using green paint in your home can not only be bold and make a huge statement but it can also be relaxing and refreshing depending on the shade. You can paint an entire room green or simply add a green accent wall or statement-making piece to the space. Either way, you can’t go wrong!

Dark Green has the power to make elements like brass and natural wood tones stand out which is the main reason we have choseto use it as the lower cabinet color in our kitchen renovation.

enough chit chat, let’s get down to paint!

If you’re interested I recently wrote another post on The Best White Paint Colors To Use In Your Home!

Benjamin Moore Salamander: This green-black moody hue is so gorgeous and is a go-to for many designers. I love how Shea from Studio Mcgee used it in this space.

Benjamin Moore Backwoods: For a more toned down dark green this shade is perfect for those of you that want green but aren’t sure about going super dark. I love how Angela from Building walnut farm used it in this laundry room. If you are worried you won’t like the entire wall painted green then try a half wall like she did, mixing in white to give it that extra pop.

Benjamin Moore Essex Green: So far this is one of the top contenders for our kitchen cabinets, I love the deep hue and the way it is so true to live greenery. Plus I think it will look amazing with our bright white walls. This bedroom by Angela Rose Home is absolutely stunning, using green paint for an accent wall was the perfectchoice for this bedroom.

Dunn Edwards Black Spruce: This one may be called black spruce but it is anything but! This dark kitchen by Studio Mcgee that showcases black spruce on the upper and lower cabinets works so well because of the bright white countertops that break things up. When going full-on dark be sure to add in light to balance things out.

Benjamin Moore Chimichurri: It may have a funky name but this one is one of my all time favorites! Seen here in this amazing office kitchen by Katie Hackworth and her husband who left no detail unfinished, I mean how many of you would love for this to be yours?

Clark + Kensington Pine Grove: This beautiful green can take on more of a blue hue depending on the light. I’ve always been in love with this reading room in Pine Grove by Chris Loves Julia, the dark and moody room is the perfect place to curl up with a good book.

Benjamin Moore Tate Olive: We couldn’t have a green paint roundup without including this gorgeous olive hue. I love this for a boys bedroom or a bathroom like this one on the Promontory Projectit adds a certain masculine vibe that I can’t get enough of.

If you’d like to try green out in your own home, I recommend buying a minimum of 3 samples, then all paint colors should be tested by painting a poster board (a piece of one) and moving the board around to different areas of your home. You’ll quickly notice that as the lighting changes throughout the day you may notice the color-changing as well.

This is a great way to decide on a paint color without spending the money plus the time and effort that it takes to paint an entire area only to realize you don’t like it later.

My Favorite Paint Tools + Products

Assuming you’re here because you are fixing to dive into a painting project or will be soon. If there is one thing I dislike about designing a home it is painting… The task can be downright hard depending on the size of the job and for the longest time, I avoided painting like the plague… Luckily over the years, I have found products that I love because they help me cheat the backbreaking paint system and you’re in luck because today I am going to share some of those with you below!

Frog Tape: The days of blue painters tape have come and gone… Today homeowners everywhere are reaching for Frog tape and rightfully sp, this stuff is amazing and the things you can do with it go so much further than just taping off your walls prepping for paint. If you haven’t tried this stuff out yet next time you are planning a paint job give it a try, I think you’ll love it.

Wagner Multi-Room Powered Roller: Before you scoff at this one hear me out… Yes, it can be a little bit nerve-racking figuring contraptions like this out the first time you try it but other than just feeling weird about not dipping your roller, this thing is an absolute Godsend! The amount of time you save from not bending over every few mins adding more paint to the roller makes painting so much faster and I think you’ll love it as much as we do!

Graco TrueCoat 360 VSP Airless Paint Sprayer: If you plan on doing projects like painting cabinets, doors or anything else in your home this is a great tool to add to your arsenal! It sprays unthinned paint so there is literally no guesswork and completely changes the amount of time it takes to paint just about anything, making your projects much faster. We started out with a super small handheld and have graduated to this bad boy and it is a beast! It also comes in a more expensive battery-powered version which we hope to upgrade to at some point.

Tarp: One day I decided I didn’t want to tape off or lay a tarp down before I painted… It didn’t end well, to say the least. There are lots of small drops of paint on the carpet in my daughter’s bedroom. They are mostly hidden down in the carpet and aren’t noticeable unless you go hunting for them but I know they’re there. If I had just taken the extra time to do it right that never would’ve happened so do yourself a solid and make sure you get plenty of these tarps to cover the flooring in your space.

Handy Paint Pail With Strap + Brush Magnet: When you have to climb a ladder to cut in around the ceiling and you don’t want to lug the paint can up there and risk dropping it or worse it causing you to fall this Handy paint pail will save you the hassle. We’ve had ours for years and I love it! You simply buy these clear liners that go inside which makes clean up as easy as throwing the liner away and the magnet that holds your brush is such a huge plus!

Purdy Paint Brush: Last but not least is the granddaddy of all brushes in my opinion… The Purdy! If you don’t have one get one, the quality is seriously unmatched and they come in many different sizes and shapes. The thing I love about them is the fact that we can rinse them out and use them over and over again. Plus the bristle quality is just flat out amazing when compared to other brushes.
