The season’s color has us green with envy for its beauty. The color green is strongly associated with nature’s beauty, so it can turn any space into a serene sanctuary. More often than not, we find ourselves leaning more toward dark green hues in interiors for the cozy and calming effect it adds to any space. Dark Green has the power to make elements like brass and natural wood tones stand out, which is why we have chosen to use it as a cabinet color in our more recent remodels and builds. Today, we’ve rounded up the best dark green paint colors to use in your home!

Benjamin Moore 469 Backwoods

Backwoods by Benjamin Moore is a classic and timeless dark green paint color that goes well combined with white, gray, and wood finishes. This hue is a favorable dark green that adds a sophisticated feel to any room but still has some warmth. Angela Wheeler from Building Walnut Farm has Backwoods in her mudroom, and it pairs so well with the wood tones and classic vintage feel of her home.

Benjamin Moore HC-124 Caldwell Green

Benjamin Moore’s Caldwell Green is inspired by America’s historic landmarks and is part of the Benjamin Moore Historical Collection. Caldwell Green is a muted gray-green paint color that looks great combined with white, wood finishes, and terrazzo patterns. We love how Studio Mcgee paired this shade with matte black hardware, wood finishes, and a serene wallpaper.

Benjamin Moore HC-160 Knoxville Grey

Knoxville Gray epitomizes a moody color because it has a balanced mix of warm and cool undertones with a dark richness. This versatile blue-green color will never fall flat and add instant depth and character to any space. We opted to use this moody hue in the lower level bar at #thelakeloft and instantly loved how it paired with the brick textured walls. Between the richness of this color and the warm wood tones, this space has become the perfect entertaining environment.

Benjamin Moore HC-133 Yorktown Green

Yorktown Green is another blue-green shade that’s a beautiful paint color for both traditional and contemporary spaces. We love the moodiness and softness it brings to any room. This color is a lovely substitute for a conventional navy blue in an area where you want to add depth and interest.

Benjamin Moore HC-135 Lafayette Green

Lafayette Green has an LRV of 8, so we are getting into the darker shades of green. This shade is a cool-toned green and changes color in different lights. In rooms with lots of natural light, it can look a lot lighter, and when there isn’t as much natural light, the depth of color comes through.
