Tips for Decorating with Green Accents
If you’ve never used much green in your home decor or are just starting to move away from a more neutral color palette, incorporating green accents can feel a bit daunting. But there are so many ways to decorate a home with green – and so many green colors to choose from!
Here are a few of my best tips for using green home decor ideas:
Choose a Green Color Palette
Start by selecting a few shades of green that resonate with your style and preferences. Consider choosing various tones, from soft pastels to deep, moody shades for a versatile look you can use throughout your home.
I have two favorite greens in home decor colors that I embrace.
Essex Green by Benjamin Moore is a deep dark green, and a historical color that we used to paint the outside trim on our cedar shakes home with HERE. It’s often seen in small New England towns like Dorset, Vermont, where the downtown homes are all painted white with Essex Green trim.
Find the Best Complementary Colors for Green Decor
Green paint and home decor can go with many different colors and home finishes, but it can take some trial and error to figure out the best complementary colors for the specific shades of green you’re using.
Combining green with colors like crisp whites, blues, pinks and corals often works well, but green can also look lovely with warm, creamy off-whites, beige and black colors. Whenever possible, test green paint colors and green decor in your space before making any final decorating decisions.
Incorporate Green Throughout Your Home
One of the best ways to make a design element – like green home decor – look cohesive is by incorporating it in multiple places throughout your home. Try a green accent wall in one room and add fresh (or faux) house plants in another. A pop of green in throw pillows on a couch or bed is another simple way to incorporate green home decor.
As always, your personal taste plays a crucial role in any home decor you choose. So adapt these suggestions to suit your unique style.
