Green Paint Colours

Green paint is back as a popular choice for decorating your home in 2021 and there’s plenty of reasons why we love it. The colour of nature, our variety of green paints in different shades ranging from muted olive greens to vibrant lime shades can help you to feel revitalised and in touch with the outdoors from within your own home.


Green is the colour of life and new beginnings, and it’s the shade of optimism we can all take joy from. Looking at green colours can have a significant effect on our mood, and studies show that being in a green environment lowers stress and can even extend our lives. Choosing green paint is a simple way to inject style into your home whilst helping to bring a feeling of tranquillity and calmness at the same time. Available in many different shades, the versatility of green means there’s a shade suitable for everyone too.

If you want to go green, check out our helpful guide below to help you pick the perfect shade for your home.

How to pick the right green for your home

If done right, green paint can be the perfect choice to convey a rich, sophisticated ambience or liven up a space with a brighter shade. When it comes to deciding what shade of green to paint the walls of the room, have a think about whether a light or dark tone would suit the space best, considering the size of the room and the amount of light the room receives. Different green shades work well with natural daylight, but also perform well in smaller, darker spaces too.

If you don’t want to make the room too green, painting a green feature wall instead is a great way to keep it more subtle whilst creating a focal point.

Intimate and elegant, darker tones of green such as forest greens or emerald shades are grounding, yet classic colours that encourage a sense of calm. Painting the walls dark green can create a dramatic impact yet help you feel reassured and comfortable, and will transform the room into a cosy sanctuary retreat.

A darker shade effectively establishes depth and character in any room, and the versatility of different shades mean that almost anything goes with them. But finding the right colours to match your green walls all depends on the shade of green. Jewel tones such as emerald pair well with other rich shades like navy blue and cranberry, whereas colours such as yellows, golds, and corals work well with green shades with warm undertones. Go tropical with pink and greens – think dark green with pale pink.



Light Green Paint Shades

SEA SMOKE X447

Serving up a spring fresh feel, light green shades can transform your house into a vibrant and inviting place. If you’re looking to create a sense of calm then light shades such as sage green paint have a fresh yet slightly muted tone, bringing a relaxing and earthy feel to your home. Yellow toned light shades like ANGELICA F452 are also the ideal paint colours of choice to warm up a north-facing room or highlight the sunlight reflecting in a south-facing room.

Light grey-green paint colours are a chic alternative to grey and white in interior design, and shades such as SEA SMOKE X447 can help to bring a taste of nature indoors whilst maintaining style. These shades are great as a complementary backdrop to houseplants too. 

Most light green shades work well with other soft colours and natural effects too, such as furniture in creamy neutral shades as well as pale wooden furniture and flooring. Pair sea greens with soft whites to whip up memories of the seaside. Or go for bright, vibrant shades like ALOE X381 which provide a crisp backdrop that can help your furniture pop.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and so it needs to look stylish yet be practical. Our durable emulsions are ideal for the busy kitchen space as they form an exceptionally tough film, allowing them to withstand frequent cleaning, washing and scrubbing. As a room full of activity, it’s important to think about what shades will be most suitable for all the different uses of the kitchen too, such as cooking, eating, entertaining, and even working. Light green paint colours are a great way to open up the kitchen space, making it bright and airy. Shades like sage green/pistachio NILE V386 are a good option because the fresh yet slightly muted tone brings a relaxing and earthy feel to the home. Or try ABYSS N439 for a modern twist. Give the kitchen a finished look with some complementary kitchen towels and accessories.

The living room plays an important role in the house, giving us a place to relax and take comfort in being at home, and so choosing a natural colour palette such as green is ideal. Whether you choose to create a cosy snug by painting the walls in dark green hues or turn it into a bright and airy retreat with light green shades, picking green will create a peaceful environment. Try not to go too intense or dark as this tends to be a bit too energising for the living room, and instead go for soothing tones such as SERPENTINE V447.

Turn your bathroom into a gorgeous green haven. The colour of rejuvenation, green paint is a great choice in the bathroom to provide a moment of peace and quiet before the day starts, or to wind down in the evening. Choose a rich, saturated hue such as BASILICA M384 for a luxuriously vintage feel. If you want to ensure the room still feels spacious, then try pairing it with light greens, greys, or other lighter neutral shades. If you’d rather have a bathroom with a more fresh and invigorating effect, give it a splash of refreshing ALOE X381. Pop in some plants, and add some bamboo or wood to continue the natural theme.

Our range of high performance, high-quality bathroom paints are specially formulated to resist moisture and are easy to clean, ensuring your bathroom looks great for longer.
