While you’ll certainly be seeing more green in the month of March—everything from hair to food is tinted—there are plenty of reasons to consider adding this vibrant shade to your home as well. In addition to being on trend (green marble, we’re looking at you), this energizing hue also provides a nice break from our obsession with neutrals. Here are five shades to consider trying now.
Highly saturated with a little more yellow than blue, this shade manages to straddle the line between bright or more dramatic depending on the other colors you combine with it. White will brighten it up, while more natural shades calm it down, so it also acts as a lovely accent color.
This chic jewel tone instantly makes a small room feel rich. It also works exceptionally well with warm metallics. In a neutral room, emerald can be used as an accent, providing just the right pop of color.
This deep shade of green works surprisingly well in both modern and traditional spaces. It pairs perfectly as a versatile cabinet color with neutral kitchen surfaces like white subway tile and marble countertops. Or if you paint an entire room this color, it provides a bold energy to your space.
Calming and soft, this cool shade really shines on appliances, furniture, and textiles. It can also lend a playfully vintage vibe to kitchen cabinets, dressers, and picture frames.
