Is your bedroom feeling a bit dull? Refresh it with green -- the perfect color to bring a nature-inspired freshness into your personal space.
Grass green paired with crisp white gives a bedroom a bold, fresh look. When mixed with blues pulled from water and sky, the scheme feels like summer year-round.
A bold green print gives this bedroom the feeling of a reclusive retreat. Here, purple serves as a complementary hue to enhance the vibe. The bamboo bed frame and seaweed-inspired artwork add to the tropical feel of this room.
Multiple shades of green -- from kiwi to emerald -- give this bedroom a fun, informal atmosphere. When a variety of greens come from different prints and textures, the shades are easily mixed and matched.
In a room filled with light-color fabrics and natural light, soft greens can bring the tranquility of a quiet meadow to a bedroom. Try adding green window treatments for the sense of sunlight streaming through tree leaves.
Leafy green combined with sunny yellow and touches of earthy brown brings the palette of the garden into your bedroom. Here, sunflowers were the inspiration for a bright, cheery space.
Take your decorating to the next level by trying a bold color like sea-glass green on the ceiling. Featured on this bedroom's linen drapery panels and table skirt, the hue is echoed on the bed's accent pillow and the room's ceiling. A muted version of the bold hue coats the walls for a complete color scheme.
Neutral shades of brown, ranging from off-white to camel to chocolate, let green accents take center stage. When choosing bedding and wall paint, look for neutral colors with just a hint of green in them -- such as the upholstered cushions on the footstools at the end of this bed. Choosing neutral hues based in your accent color helps a palette feel cohesive.
Have a favorite shade of green? Go ahead and use it for an entire wall. Just remember, colors look darker on the wall, so consider going one shade lighter on the paint card. Then paint a test area and live with it for several days before committing to the paint project.
It is possible for multiple bold colors to share a space beautifully. It's all about keeping them in the right proportions. For two colors, strive for a 70/30 split. Here, turquoise covers about 70 percent of the room, while lime accents the palette for the remaining 30 percent. If you're using three colors, try a 70/20/10 distribution.
For a more traditional palette, pair a forest or fern green with creamy whites. When married with darker wood furnishings, this color combination creates a rich, inviting bedroom.
