Green combines the sunny qualities of yellow with the calming effect of blue. It is the color of nature, fertility, life and balance; it symbolizes self-respect, harmony and well-being. Shades range from bright and cheery to deep and elegant to earthy and comforting. If you are unsure what color you want to paint your bedroom, start with green.

When choosing your shade, consider your decorating style. A muted, mossy green works well with modern and craftsman style that incorporate a lot of wood in the furnishings. Deep green works well with a more traditional decor and can be mixed with other rich colors such as crimson, burgundy or brown for an elegant look. Apple green walls, combined with bed and window fabrics in a pattern with a touch of red, perfectly complement shabby chic furnishings. If you love ultra-bright colors, consider lime green or chartreuse, paired with purple or red for a contemporary look.

But don't let the typical combinations keep you from being creative. Green has the ability to mingle with all colors in the spectrum, which makes it a perfect choice for walls, bedspreads, rugs and even floors. Some green shades work well together; consult a color wheel to find combinations that are adjacent to one another to form an analogous color scheme. This will help create a serene mood in your bedroom. If you desire more energy from your colors, try a triadic color scheme, which uses shades evenly spaced apart on the color wheel. If you're choosing colors for a master suite with multiple areas, or for your entire house, green is also a great choice because multiple tones blend well in open spaces. Natural light will bring out the warm yellow tones of bright green shades.

You can create a neutral or black-and-white canvas with the colors of your walls, floor and bed linens, then add a color pop with a neon shade of green. Paint an accent wall, or use green with a neutral shade and paint wide stripes on the bedroom walls.

In a baby's nursery, a pale green can be gender-neutral and, if worked into a mod style with geometric touches, can be an appropriate color well into childhood. Pair green with pink in a girl's room, blue for boys. Teens of both genders may like a pale green stripe on their bedroom walls, creating a soothing backdrop for the furnishings that let them showcase their individual tastes.
