Green kitchen, living room and bathroom

Green is an interesting interior design color.  It doesn’t rank in the top 5 for color popularity for any given room, yet, there are shades of green that are popular.

For instance, olive green is used in homes with an earth tone color scheme.

Mint green is also a popular option combined with white.

But there are many additional shades and hues of green than just olive or mint.  Below we set out many green interior design examples including kitchens, living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms and dining rooms.

For each example, we include a breakdown of each color used in the room by percentage so you can get a sense of colors that go with green (and that don’t).

1. Bathroom with British Racing Green and Dark Wood

The dark British racing green and dark wood is a luxurious color combination.  It might be too dark for some people, but if you like rich and dark, this works beautifully.  The white lightens the room a tad; I think a bit more white could used, but the effect is great.

Colors used with green in this room: Black, grey and brown.

2.  Kitchen with Gold Green Cabinetry

Here’s a kitchen with gold green cabinetry combined with light gray, stainless steel and white.  I think the brightness of the gold green is too bright for my liking.  The green itself is nice, but there’s too much of it given all the cabinetry is done in that green.  Accents of that gold green would look great, but not an entire kitchen.

Colors used with green in this room: Brown, grey and black.

3.  Pesto Green and White Bedroom

For anyone who likes earth tones, pesto green is a great option.  It tends toward brown/yellow.  It’s a natural hue.  I think it works wonderfully in this interior design, especially with all the white.

One thing to note in the example below and that is how half the walls are white.  This makes a big difference.  It would be too much green if the entire wall was green.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown and black.

4.  Avocado Green and White Bedroom

That’s a lot of avocado greeen.  It’s not a bad hue of green, but it would be much nicer if half the walls were white like the bedroom above.  On the other hand, green goes beautifully with dark wood.  It’s an excellent combination.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, black, brown and blue.

5.  Green and Beige Bedroom

The green here goes well with the various shades of brown and beige used on the surrounding fireplace materials, carpeting and bedding.  The white window and door trim also work (white goes with everything).

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, blue and brown.

6. Avocado green, white and grey dining room

I hate to say it, but again too much avocado green.  It definitely works with white, but there’s way too much contrast going one between the green and white and the white and grey.  The grey is too dark and the green too bright.  My eyes jump around looking at this room.

Takeaway:  Contrast is great, but limit contrast to two colors.

Also, there’s simply too much green.  If only the upper half of the walls were green and the grey much lighter, this color scheme could work.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown and blue.

7. Green-brown living room with white ceiling

The green walls have hints of red and varying shades of green which gives it a rich look.  Combined with the white crown molding and fireplace mantel, this green works very nicely.  The only change I’d make to the room is replacing the carpet with hardwood flooring.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown, red, black, violet and white.

8. Dark green kitchen with beige tile floor

What an absolutely beautiful green kitchen.  Normally all green cabinetry doesn’t work so well, but this dark, earthy green works well with the silver hardware and light beige tile floor.  It’s an unusual color scheme but works spectacularly well.  It’s also very light despite the darkness of the green.

Colors used with green in this room: Brown, grey and white.

9.  Light green, white and cotta terra tile floor kitchen

This light green goes very nicely with white, but there’s too much of it.  Again if the lower half of the walls were white, it would work.  I also don’t think this green goes well with the terra cotta tile floor.  An earthier green would be much better suited with terra cotta tile flooring.  Instead, a light wood wood floor would look much better.  At the end of the day, this light green goes well with white but in moderation.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown and white.

10.  Light green, white and dark wood kitchen

This works.  It’s a very similar green to the kitchen above, but notice how it looks so much better because there’s less of it and there’s wood floor (I’d probably go with lighter wood though).  The dark island works well too adding a darker element to an otherwise light color scheme.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown, black and white.

11.  Green and brown kitchen

While there’s a lot of green here, it works.  Not my first choice, but the green and medium hardwood is a great combination resulting in a rustic kitchen look.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown, black, red, blue, yellow and white.

12.  Yellow green, white and medium wood kitchen

Unfortunately the wood in this kitchen overpowers the soft yellow green.  If you take out the wood, the yellow green goes nicely with the white, but the two wood tones take over the space visually.  The island and floor should have a much more muted wood tone.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, orange and brown.

13.  Camouflage green and beige kitchen

My problem here is I’m not wild about camouflage green.  My other problem is there’s too much earth tones going on with the earthy green walls and flooring.  White walls and very light wood would be a much better combination here and just might make the camouflage green cabinetry palatable.

Colors used with green in this room: Yellow, brown, grey and blue.

14.  Green accent wall in modern living room

In this living room, a medium green with hints of light brown is used effectively as an accent wall.  The light wood floor blends in nicely along with the floating wood shelves.  It’s a very simple, but attractive color scheme.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown, blue and orange.

15. Green, white, medium wood and river rock living room

The green here works really well.  It’s contrasted with an all-white ceiling and medium wood window trim (of which there’s a lot of).  It would be improved had the hardwood extended throughout the living room.  While I’m not a big fan of river rock fireplaces, it works in this design scheme.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, blue and brown.

16. Earthy green and dark wood living room

What a gorgeous texturing of green and dark wood in this visually interesting living room.  Yes, it’s dark, but it’s luxurious with the light and dark earthy greens playing off one another.  And then the dark wood blends in beautifully.

Colors used with green in this room: Brown, black and grey.

17.  Light bright green and white dining room

I love this playful light bright green, verging on a soft yellow in an otherwise white formal dining room with dark wood flooring.  The only change I would make is to make the lower half of the green wall white.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, brown and red.

18. Grey green and white bathroom

Gorgeous use of grey green and white in a large bathroom.  I have no problem with the fact the walls are all green here because there’s plenty of white balancing out the green.  It’s a nice neutral green since it’s verging onto a grey.

Colors used with green in this room: Grey, blue and brown.

19.  Green and white bathroom with dark accents

The green here would work great with the white if it weren’t for the wallpaper strips halfway up the wall and at the ceiling.  Those black and off-white strips make the room too busy; the green alone offers sufficient color and contrast.

Colors used with green in this room: Brown and black.
