Our Favourite Green Paint Colours of 2023
To begin with, it will be a good idea to take a deeper dive into the sort of green paint colours that are on-trend today. It doesn't matter whether you end up feeling a sense of inspiration from any of these, however, because you may well prefer to save other shades in your basket. Even so, it is still often helpful to examine some of the trendiest greens to understand why they're so popular.
A good case in point is Aquamarine Dream. This mid-tone green paint is very versatile and would suit a bedroom just as much as a living space. A billiard green with an azure undertone, it would even suit a games room. Boulder Lichen, by contrast, provides a glass bottle green tonality with a vine-like undertone. It'd be perfect in a bathroom or shower room.
Night Watch is different again. Save this dark green paint for an impressive feature wall or in truly grown-up spaces where you want your paint to create a sense of jade-like aqua-green sophistication. This shades works beautifully with lighter greys.
Light Green Paint Colours
Jade is a light, minty, teal green
Spring Rosemary is a mid, dusty, aqua green
Botanical Retreat is a mid dusty aqua
If you are unsure about using a vibrant green on your walls, then opt for light greens to begin with as you adjust your home's colour palette. Jade is a superb light green shade with a matt finish. It can be used as an interior bathroom paint.
When painting sheds, fences and weatherboarding, a light tone like Spring Rosemary or Botanical Retreat would be ideal choices from our extensive stock. Both offer sumptuous, if subtle tones, and help to protect wood.
Dark Green Paint Colours
Forest Green is a dark pine forest green
Ivy Sky is a dark jade and turquoise green
Forest Stroll is a mid, muted, viridian, forest green
Another outdoor wood paint worth considering is Forest Green. This dark green subtly sits in the background, especially when it is sited next to evergreen plants. Indoors, our dark green paints are no less impressive. Choose Ivy Sky if you want a deep green for a feature wall. There again, Forest Stroll comes in washable and anti-bacterial versions, ideal for any food preparation space such as being used as a kitchen wall paint.
A dark, shaded and verdant green, Midnight Clover comes with a teal undertone that would look vibrant on any wall. Ideal for home offices or guest bedrooms that double up as studies, this thoughtful hue matches well with gold trim and pure whites in equal measure. Create a serious space with a sense of nature with this delightful, green paint.
Sage Green Paint Colours
Natural sage green with avocado tint
Gentle Willow is a mid, muted, grey, sage green
Dusty Fern is a dark, muted, grey, sage green
Sage green walls evoke nature and add warmth. Natural Sage is a good colour if you want to coordinate green tones inside and out since it is an external masonry paint as well as an interior wall and ceiling paint. You can also obtain it as a wood and metal paint that offers a quick-drying, smooth finish.
There again, Gentle Willow is a green paint that is ideal for external applications. It is a part of our Woodcare Garden Colours range. Dusty Fern also belongs to the same range and is one of those greens that has a subtle touch of grey about it.
Olive Green Paint Colours
Amphibious is a dark moss green
Ripe Olive is a mid, khaki beige with a touch of olive
Hemlock is a mid, muted, grey, sage green
In The Dale
A superb olive green wall paint, Amphibious would serve as an inspiration in a guest bedroom or master bedroom in equal measure. It is available in matt and soft-sheen finishes. By contrast, Ripe Olive is designed for external use. This green can be bought as a 15-year masonry paint for long-lasting coverage.
If you want a wall paint for a kitchen or reception room, as opposed to one of your bedrooms, then how about Hemlock? It is a colour that is deeply verdant without being too demanding on the eye.
Grey Green Paint Colours
Delicious greyish lush green
Relaxed spring green with a pistachio tint
Light spring green with a pistachio tint
Any grey-green colour you could choose for your room would strike a balance between inspiration and subtlety. A green wall paint colour like Dry Grass, for instance, offers a restful mid-tone, grey-green that is lush thanks to an organic green undertone.
Modesty, on the other hand, is a green that has a soft, spring-like quality with a pistachio undertone. It is a colour that can be used in any room or outside as you see fit. Pale Pine also has a pistachio undertone but is a colour that offers a slightly lighter hue. Great with soft blue tones.
Muted Green Paint Colours
Deep peacock green with a hint of seafoam
Deep muted chartreuse green
Energising green with a hint of seafoam
Muted green colour choices like Pine Thicket or Derby Green also offer inspiration without overdoing things. Both have a peacock-green tonality with a seafoam undertone. The main difference is that Derby Green is saturated whereas Pine Thicket is not.
A muted, chartreuse green paint with an electric green undertone, Golden Grass should be paired with a yellow colour or splashes of floral accents. It is ideal for the main wall in any room but would be particularly suited to a reception room.
Warm Green Paint Colours
Delicious neutral grassy and foliage green
Clean subdued toad green with an ivy tint
Looking for a warm colour for your room? If so, the saturated yet neutral, grassy green shade of Tapenade - along with its foliage undertone - is likely to be for you. There again, how about Duck Pond which pairs well with off-yellow and tan hues? It offers a soothing toad green colour with an impressively fresh ivy undertone. This shade would be outstanding as a shed or fence paint.
