Evergreen Color Palette

An edgier take on classic forest green, this hue feels dramatic yet down-to-earth at the same time. Pair it with black, white and metallic accents for a high-contrast, high-impact space.

Inspired by Nature

A deep green with just a hint of blue, this color brings to mind vibrant evergreen trees. Even a small touch can add a fresh look to a mostly neutral space.

New Neutral

Evergreen-inspired hues are extremely versatile in home decor. They look just as good on walls as they do in textiles, and they go with almost everything.

Warm Contemporary

Clean-lined furniture combines with a rustic, woodsy color palette in this living room, creating a cozy yet contemporary space. Black and white accents look particularly striking when paired with a green sofa and wood-paneled walls.

Rock and Roll Style

Forest green doesn't have to look rustic. In this eclectic living room, it looks edgy and energizing when paired with black, white and red accents. Rock on!

Green and Gold

A gold mirror gleams against a deep green wall in this stylish space. This rich color combo is perfect for fall.

Accent Wall

If painting an entire room in this intense green hue sounds daunting, start with an accent wall. In this bedroom, a bright white ceiling balances an evergreen focal wall.

Subway Tile Twist

Subway tile is both timeless and trendy for the kitchen, but think beyond white to give it a fresh, unexpected look. Here, the green subway tile backsplash was inspired by the beautiful view of lush trees, provided by a large window.

Cozy Shower

In the bathroom, deep, woodsy green is a surprising alternative to the typical neutral tile. In this space, it surrounds the tub to create a tranquil spot for soaking away the stress of the day.

Art Deco Glam

Evergreen can look less earthy and more glamorous when paired with black, white and gold. A lush, green chaise longue enhances the luxurious look of this bathroom. The color palette is a nod to the art deco era.

Take It Outside

Evergreen hues are a natural fit for an outdoor living room, helping connect the space to its surrounding landscape. A vibrant green chandelier illuminates this patio, allowing it to be used day and night. Layers of muted forest green, beige and black complete the earthy palette.

Fresh Front Door

A coat of green paint looks great on just about any front door, complementing a wide range of exterior home colors. Here, a green door makes a statement against a gray brick facade, but green also works well with red brick, yellow, white or brown exteriors.

Earthy Exterior

Deep forest green perfectly complements Shingle-style architecture, accentuating the natural look of the wood siding.
