One color that we cannot get enough of this year is green! The color green is strongly associated with the beauty of nature so, it can turn any space into a serene sanctuary. More often than not, we find ourselves leaning more towards 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!
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 we think it pairs so well with the wood tones and classic vintage feel of her home.
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.
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 will add instant depth and character to any space. We opted to use this moody hue in the lower level bar at #thelakeloft and instantly fell in love with 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.
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 traditional navy blue in a space where you want to add depth and interest.
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 really comes through.
