Desert Dreams

Create a cozy Southwest-inspired atmosphere in your bedroom. Start by painting the walls a rich cactus green, then add earth-tone accents. Roman bamboo shades, a rope pendant light, and stained wood furniture bring even more warmth into the room for a relaxing feel. Finish off the motif with a patterned blanket, throw pillow, and area rug.

You'll be dreaming of a relaxing beach vacation each night with an island-influenced bedroom. A mix of the key lime rug, seafoam patterned bed frame, bright throw pillows, and green ceiling give the room an energetic feel, while the white walls and furniture keep the space light and calm. Pops of pink pastel compliment the green hues and give the room a preppy look.

Lush and Luxurious

A few statement pieces can make a big impact a room with minimal effort. A four poster canopy bed is a statement on its own, but the sky-high green velour curtains are the real focal point of the space. Natural materials such as bamboo and jute create an earthy energy while a vintage bedside table adds a bit of old-world charm.

Green Bedroom Trim

If green walls are too bold for your taste, incorporate this simple and subtle idea instead. Paint the crown and base molding, window casing, and a chair rail in a soothing olive color to give the room a bit of color without overwhelming the space. Keep the rest of the bedroom neutral with tan, brown, and beige tones throughout, but feel free to incorporate more greenery in the way of fresh plants or floral patterned pillows.

Turn your bedroom into a tropical escape you'll anticipate coming home to each day. An accent wall of green palm leaf patterned wallpaper blends beautifully with the green painted hardwood flooring. Add natural elements such as a suede headboard, a pair of leather stools, and rattan or seagrass accents to add texture without overwhelming the space with more color.

Pops of Green

You don't have to commit to a paint color to incorporate green into the bedroom. Instead, dress up a neutral room with green accessories. Stick to a neutral color scheme for the walls, furniture, and bedding, while adding a few statement pieces such as the green bed bench and sage throw. Hang a mini gallery wall above the headboard using art in black, white, and green to tie the space together.

Balance with Black

While not a likely combination, green and black can make for a sophisticated space. The key is to balance it delicately. Use light-colored walls and bedding as a soft backdrop for a statement black and green headboard. Add matte black accents to white furniture and decor, then finish off the room with plush velvet pillows in green and black patterns.

Go with Greenery

If you’re a plant person, you can design a green bedroom around your favorite lively leaves. Place hanging and potted houseplants around the perimeter of the room from the floor to the ceiling. This will freshen up the room, both literally and aesthetically. Compliment the greenery with bursts of green in accessories like pillows and vases.

Give yourself the royal treatment in a bedroom draped in emerald green and rich gold. Pair green painted walls and a fabric-paneled headboard with gold curtains and a matching crown canopy. Continue the theme throughout with small details such as a green pillow with gold trim, a gold lined duvet with a matching pillow monogrammed in green, and side table decor in ornate gold finishes.

Navy and Green

Blue and green are a popular pairing, especially in nautical-themed rooms, because the combination is reminiscent of the sea. By blending bright green and navy blue, you can evoke a theme that's ideal for a kids bedroom. Green bed frames, blue bedding, and green and blue storage baskets make for a cheerful space for kids to play and sleep. Commit to the design with a rope pendant light, a nautical flag, and boat patterned wallpaper.

Make visitors feel at home in a calming guest bedroom with green accents. Dress up a set of beds in complementary colors, then add green elements such as throw pillows or bed skirts. Clean lines, like in a board and batten wall or a wood plank ceiling, make for a simplistic yet charming overall look and feel.
