Contrast Your Walls and Decor

Red curtains and a white striped wall play off the teal green grasscloth wallpaper in this space, creating an eclectic and gorgeous living room that plays with your eyes. Add similarly colored accents (red chair and green throw pillows) to bring the room together.

Try a Statement Piece

The gorgeous emerald green sofa brings a perfect touch of color to this natural-toned living space.

Emerald Elegance

A gorgeous emerald green wallpaper adorns these walls, upscaling it from simple sitting room to elegant formal living space. The gold chandelier, detailed ceiling, luxurious green sofa and a stunning mantel help complete the room's classic look.

A Perfect Pair

These gorgeous green tables add a splash of color to a room and serve as a stylish coffee table alternative.

Cool Hue for a Relaxing Space

This green hue sets the stage for a comfortable living room that softly whispers, "You can relax here." Plus, the pair of luxe sofas matches perfectly with the easy living style.

An Artistic Touch

Bring in a dark green piece to liven up your space. An added bonus in this living room: The rich green of the painting is pulled into the twin lamps.

Pink and Green Reading Nook

A perfectly placed pink chair complements the green bookshelves for a gorgeous reading nook.

Mid-Century Modern Chair

Don Draper would love this green leather chair almost as much as we do.

Pull a Room Together

This masculine den comes together with a green table as the heart of the stylish room featuring deep purple walls, an antique upholstered sofa, traditional leather arm chairs and and a bold photographic print.

Gray + Green = A Perfect Match

Emerald green wingback arm chairs bring a splash of sophisticated color to this contemporary gray space.

A Luxurious Space for the Whole Family

Although this space looks luxe, the fabrics are all durable, smart for a family with three children under 8. Rich jewel tones give an elegant, sophisticated feel.

Bold and Beautiful Color

This living room is fearless when it comes to prints and color. Green walls feel like a page out of the jungle paired with large potted houseplants, and the arm chairs are exotic in blue with a bold graphic pattern.

This Room Floored Us

Create a compelling living room by looking down for the solution. In this space, a gorgeous green rug adds color to the neutral furniture.

Go Modern With Natural Touches

Two houseplants placed at either end of this sitting room's green sofa pull the rich color out to the edges of the space.

No Green Thumb?

Curl up next to the gorgeous fireplace in this room. The chic wall art adds a natural feeling and helps brings the outside in.

Create a Bold Focal Point

The deep, jade sofa really pops against the teal walls in this space. This bold statement piece, along with the contrasting art and sconces that hang above it, creates an elegant focal point.

Awesome Accent Wall

Looking for the perfect paint for an accent wall that adds a punch of color, but doesn't dominate? The dark green in this space fits the bill by adding an earthy hue that makes the white room a bit more exciting.

The Two Gs

Green and gold go great together, as seen in these gorgeous chairs from HGTV's Property Brothers at Home: Drew’s Honeymoon House.
