We all love a bit of greenery, and depending on what shade you choose for the walls it can be everything from relaxing and refreshing, to punch-you-in-the-face dramatic. There's a vibe for everyone, so don't underestimate the power of Green - trust us.
Here are some killer green shades of paint for you, from the subtle to the statement…you’ll be feeling green in no time. In a good way.
Not all greens are 'out there'. In fact, not all greens are that green. Opting for a neutral with a green tinge can be a great way to bring just a touch of green in, and can feel really nice and warming. Subtle warm greens will give the room a calm feel, perfect for a bedroom or study.

Warm colours are on point this year. Our fave green bedroom paint colours are tones like pale green Kind Regards - a light Greige really (green-y beige, for those wondering) with that subtle warmth. If you're not a "green person" this could work for you. Try pairing with natural materials like exposed wood and even houseplants plants to bring out the subtle green.
If you're wanting a bigger pop of colour but still want to keep things relaxed, then a nice dusty pale Teal like Hamilton is a great bet. Still light and warm, but with a kick of blue that feels fresh and modern.

Green paint colours like pale teals work well with white accents like skirting or furniture if you want to bring out the freshness. Or if you want to dial up the warmth then pair with some natural woods too. It’s the perfect humble colour to add a splash of personality, without being remotely shout-y.
If you don't fancy any blue hues, go for a true flat green. You're going to get a fresh modern feel with something like Home Grown shown below. A little grubby with a touch of Avo, it's as box fresh as they come. Pair it with paler woods and white accents to get that Scandi vibe going or include pops of green decor to complete the look.
Vibrant Teal Green
Now, we’re onto the bright green home decor - strictly reserved for the lively spaces in your home. The Posh Seats packs a punch, with some killer neon undertones there's no mistaking it's there.

Think oranges and houseplants for pairing, just like you see here, to show off the intensity. Vibrant teal shades work well in South facing rooms where they'll feel alive. In darker spaces you'll get less neon, but a nice deep mysterious vibe instead.

If you've ever felt like you need to grow up a bit, dark Greens will make that happen. Instantly. Opt for (the appropriately named) Adulting, a dark Teal, to add a sense of drama to the room without feeling obnoxious.
Or try Ditch the Tie for a more traditional rich green. This modern take on a stately shade works incredibly well in smaller spaces like offices and hallways, giving them a real sense of purpose. Don't be shy. Either of these dark Greens will do a job of making your home feel as classy and inviting as you like.

Colours That Go With Green
The amazing thing about green is how many undertones you can have in different shades of green, meaning you'll never find it had pairing it with other colours and finding the perfect colour combinations. Green decor ideas and combinations are endless, let's explore a few....
You can never go wrong with neutrals and greens. Try painting a pure white like Screenshot with a deep moody green like Ditch the Tie which will help create a modern and fresh feeling in any room. It's a classic which we don't ever see going out of date. Why not try a black like The Record Store on your skirting and door frames to really tie the colour palette together.
To get the royal, jewel-toned room look, try pairing earthy shades of green with deep blue The Establishment and rich reds like The Old Corset Factory. If you're lucky to have larger rooms and taller ceilings then you're spoiled for choose in terms of the colours you can experiment with. Be bold, go on....
In conclusion (essay vibes?) - Green really is a versatile colour. Throwing from the palest warm shades right up to dramatic darker ones, there's something in there for every space. Whether you opt for a greeny neutral, or venture all out with neon - we’ve got you. Shop COAT Green Paints Now.
