Green is Having a Moment - See Our Favorite Seven Green Paint Colors
From retro Y2K lime to down to earth olive, green in its many shades is having a full-on moment this year. The best part? This nature-inspired hue is as timeless as it gets — green kitchen cabinets or a green upholstered sofa won’t go out of style at the turn of the season.
We love punchy emerald, soft sage, and classic hunter in equal measure, so we took it upon ourselves to outline our all-time favorite green paint colors. Whether you’re looking for a modern green moment with gold accents, or an organic sage palette with airy, natural accents, we have the perfect green paint color for you.
Ahead, find our seven go-to green paint colors for every mood, style, and space:
1. Hunter Green: Caldwell Green by Benjamin Moore
For a rich hunter green with regal blue undertones, Caldwell Green by Benjamin Moore is always a top contender. This gorgeous shade is equal parts earthy and moody and creates a cozy, enveloping atmosphere in two quick coats.
2. Olive Green: Dark Olive by Benjamin Moore
Earthy and natural, Farrow & Ball’s Treron green is a beautiful, soft olive that brings depth to this modern-traditional living room. Paired with the warm cream, cognac leather, and striking black, it’s a versatile palette for the ages. Pro tip: if you’re adding green to a more modern space, go with a cool undertone to complement the aesthetic.
3. Gray Green: Pigeon by Farrow and Ball
For a hint of color that still functions as a neutral, look no further than Farrow & Ball’s Pigeon. This pale green is a minimalist’s dream — it adds just enough visual interest while still standing firmly in neutral territory with a gray undertone. Go wall-to-wall with French Gray and add contrast with dark gray architectural features and rich cream sofa.
4. Dark Grey Green: Intrigue by Benjamin Moore
Tip your toe into the world of color with this understated gray-green from Benjamin Moore. Intrigue Green is a contemporary classic with vintage charm that will truly look good in any space. Pair it with the brand’s traditional neutral Off-White for a hint of contrast.
5. Sage Green: Saybrook Sage by Benjamin Moore
It’s easy to see why sage is all the rage (sorry, we had to go for it) — this soft, earthy green is the ultimate grounded neutral that adds color to a space while remaining minimal. As evidenced by the above living room, Benjamin Moore’s Saybrook Sage truly sings with a relaxed palette and natural accents — jute lovers, rejoice.
6. Deep Sea Green: Black Forest by Benjamin Moore
If you want moody with a capital “M,” Forest Green by Benjamin Moore is an enchanting, deep sea green that feels just as deep and mysterious as the ocean itself. The blue-green paint color brings out the deep blues in the area rug while perfectly complementing the gray, cognac, and rusty red accent colors.
7. Grass Green: Vintage Vogue by Benjamin Moore
Vintage Vogue is Backdrop’s answer to a crisp, medium green with tan and yellow undertones. It’s warm, playful, and vibrant, and will lend a down-to-earth touch to any room in your home. Pair it with warm wood tone to really bring it to life!
