Dark Green in the Living Room

“My clients really like green. This blade-of-grass shade punches up the neutral sofa. And because it’s saturated and fresh, it makes a statement without weighing down the dimly lit room," says designer Isabella Patrick. "That sunny ottoman plays well with the green and ties in with the gallery wall.” (Martha's Vineyard, Benjamin Moore)

Tropical Green for a Modern Kitchen

Designer and homeowner Ashley Menger chose this perky green color scheme when she and her husband (and fellow designer at Hatch Works) built their new home in Austin. The handprinted wallpaper has a tropical feel, and the cabinets and island were painted to match. “I was tired of black-and-white kitchens,” she says. (Arugula, Sherwin-Williams)

Sophisticated Green in a Home Office

“For my husband’s home office, I wanted a color that would feel sophisticated but not stuffy," says homeowner Courtney Nowak. "He works in sports, with a focus on tennis and baseball, which inspired the supersaturated green walls and the leather sofa.” (Royal Orchard, Behr)
