Decorate with Dark Green to Create Cozy Rooms

In a nod to Christmas, I’m featuring rooms that are decorated with dark green. Two days ago I featured charming red front doors. Dark green is a color that most people don’t typically apply to their walls, but I think you’ll see how warm and inviting the color can be.

  1. I’m so happy to see you feature this dark green. Two years ago I painted my small kitchen a dark green and I love it. Other people – not so much. I’m always questioned as to “why dark green?” At that time I also had my builder-grade “oak” cabinets painted white, my countertops replaced with faux marble, my appliances upgraded to stainless, and my floors replaced with a dark laminate. I was looking for something different for my kitchen – something more “cozy” than kitchens usually are. My kitchen is open to my great room and I wanted a paint color that wasn’t bright or reflective off of the hard surfaces. As with most kitchens, there is not a lot of wall space, so the dark color doesn’t overwhelm. I’ve managed to pick up the color in my adjacent great room in throws, pillows, artwork and plants while retaining a light gray on the great room walls so there is still a flow from one room to another. While I don’t have the grandness of your featured rooms and it’s not a color for everyone, it gives me the calm, moodiness and coziness that is my comfort zone.

  2. These green kitchens are so pretty

  3. Love ’em…. each and every one!

  4. I loved all of the kitchens they were so cozy looking. My favorites though were the dining room and bathroom.

  5. Marlene Stephenson says:

    I liked the fifth picture with the green island and pendant lights. They all were pretty though, thanks.

  6. Oh my word! Does anyone remember Habersham green from about 30-35 years ago? It was all the rage.
