Green is a timeless wall colour. You’ll never tire of it and it won’t ever look dated. I’m not talking bright greens here of course, but pale, soft, saturated and muted greens that add calm and warmth to a room. Green also works so well with all other neutrals like white, beige, grey and black.
It’s a popular wall colour in Scandinavian homes because it’s a simple and effective way to bring the outdoors in. Green reflects nature more than any other colour. It works in almost any room but I especially like green walls for a bedroom and a living room. Here, I’m sharing five beautiful green living rooms. From the palest greens to darker shades, all these greens have lots of warmth and bags of style. If you’re thinking of going green, these rooms will inspire you. And even if you’re not, you may be tempted after seeing these rooms.

First up is this small and cosy living room painted in the palest of greens. Despite being so pale, the white furniture really stands out against the soft green. Also subtle touches like the plants and green cushion further accentuate the green. If you want to go green but keep it subtle, then a shade like this will work well. Here’s a green paint colour thats similar however as you know, every paint looks different in different rooms so testing first is a must!
There is so much to love about this Scandi living room from the mix of vintage and modern styles to the all those cosy textures. And of course the beautiful green walls that have a hint of blue in them. When we’re talking green walls there are so many possibilities with undertones, it really depends on your personal preference. I love how the wall colour really makes the simple, monochrome artworks really stand out, while the plants add a lovely contrast to the walls. Here’s a similar blue green paint colour — with undertones, it can always look more blue or green, depending on your room and lighting.
Sage green is another beautiful green that can add so much to your living space like in the living room above. The beautiful white linen sofa and the other white furniture all work so well against the sage green backdrop. The black touches add a contrast to the green while the wood floors really compliment the sage walls. As always, you have plants which add to the whole green look. Here’s a similar shade of sage green in case you’re tempted by this colour!
Another different yet equally striking colour for a living room is a muted mint green. I’m using the word muted because you don’t want to end up with mint ice-cream coloured walls! Like all greens it’s a calming shade that works well with all neutrals. In this living room they’ve paired it with greys but they’ve also got beige and black accents which all come together so cohesively. Once again, the plants really pop against the minty green walls. Here’s a similar shade of pale mint green in case you want to explore this colour.
This is the darkest green of all the living rooms and is ideal for those of you who like dark neutrals wall colours. Much like all the other living rooms, this olive green is not bright or overpowering in any way. It’s the opposite — giving off calm and cosy vibes. The grey accents like the rug and cushion really work well with the olive green walls as do all the off white and wood tones. I also love the pops of black which actually works with any muted shade of green. Here’s a similar shade of green in case you’re drawn to this colour.
From light to dark, there are so many shades of green that work for a living room. Because they’re not bright or bold, they all work well with beiges, whites and greys — the most popular neutrals. Which of these shades of green is your favourite?
