8 Designers on Their Favorite Green Paint Colors

With Pantone’s Greenery named the color of the year for 2017, we anticipate seeing more and more green and nature-inspired accents in home design. To get a jump on this trend, we asked 8 top designers to share with us their favorite green paint colors and show us the spaces where they’ve used this refreshing shade. From shamrock greens to deep olives, see the favorite colors below.


Benjamin Moore’s Bunker Hill Green (#566)

“White isn’t always right. In this North Carolina mountain home, green was the natural choice for the ceiling of this lodge room, which celebrates our client’s Irish heritage and his passion for sport and game. This vivid shamrock green hue complements the room’s wood paneled walls, provides drama, and creates a strong connection to the great outdoors. That’s something a simple white ceiling could never do.”


Benjamin Moore’s Mountain Lane (#488)

“Our goal was to give this dining room vibrancy and new life while incorporating the client’s antique furniture. The juxtaposition of the rich wood furniture against the dynamic backdrop of this saturated green enlivened and enriched the space and highlighted the graphic Ikat print used for the drapery and on the captain’s chairs.”

Sherwin Williams’ Palm Leaf (#7735)

“The biggest design challenge with this kitchen was that it is in the center of the house and has no windows. Instead of fighting the lack of light by painting the cabinets a bright color, we went dark and moody. This green achieves a dramatic vibe, but also brings in an element of nature—and looks great in candlelight.”

Farrow & Ball’s Breakfast Room Green (No. 81)

“This colorful home in Austin has an easy flow from room to room. In the dining room, which is right off the entry and visible from the front door, we wanted to instantly grab the eye and be a bit more bold but still coordinate with the other strong elements of the room. We chose Farrow & Ball’s Breakfast Room Green for the space because it has just the right amount of blue in it to make the transition seamless.”
