Apple Green Accents

An oversized, chevron-patterned rug brings a fun punch of color to this neutral kid's room. Playful fabrics on the window and bedding add a dose of kid-friendly style.

Crisp Bookshelf Hues

A lime green shelf pops in this white, contemporary kid's bedroom.

Bold Bathroom

A bright, apple green sitting room leads to a navy and white powder room in this bold and cheerful space. A plain wicker chair and wooden end table help tone down the vibrant colors and patterned curtains.

Unexpected Color

Stained-glass doors add color and bring a little extra light into the master bedroom. The painted rails (seven shades plus white, in random order) lead to a blue and green playroom upstairs. See more of this home from HGTV Magazine.

Dressed in Green

This dining room is mostly for holidays and big occasions, so it's dressed up with bright green trim on the ceiling and around the windows. The floor has a gradated green wool and linen rug. See more of this home from HGTV Magazine.

Apple Green Showpiece

This master bedroom is a surprise of color and light in a scale-appropriate setting. White plaster walls meet dark oak floors in a room anchored by a green-tiled fireplace flanked on either side by French doors and green chairs.

Cool Bedroom Throw

Plant-based motifs, like these block-printed ferns, are cropping up everywhere from bedding to wallpaper to throw pillows. Green accents add the perfect amount of color to this neutral-toned room.

Accent Piece

An apple green chair is the perfect piece to accent a mostly neutral living space.

Contemporary Dining Room

A braided rug anchors this contemporary-style dining area where a trestle-style table, fashioned from mindi wood, becomes its own focal point when surrounded by Parson-inspired dining chairs.

Traditional Feel

To ensure the vintage apple green stove remained the kitchen's focal point, designer Regina Bilotta ditched the original plan of dark, stained kitchen cabinets and decided to paint them a bright white instead.

Playful Bunk

This adorably stylish bunk bed nook is a space-saving dream. Pull the curtain and it's entirely hidden away; open the curtain and reveal two cozy bunks decked out in dapper stripes with under-bed storage drawers.

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.
