I don’t know why I haven’t written earlier about green walls, even myself, I have started weeks ago to test different shades of green on my walls. It’s time to make a round up on different tone proposals. Publishing this color trend a little later is has the advantage of finding lovely material on the net and confirm an interest ! So yes, green walls are trending, and lately a darker shade of green seems to be the winner.
Where is this paint color trend exactly coming from? It’s no secret that everything green has been surrounding us for quite a while. The Green Trend in the Interior Design World has started 3-4 years ago and we have seen much evolution ever since. Botanical, Jungle, Succulent, Tropicana – all these are tiny Micro Trends under the same umbrella.
In addition, Dulux has come up with a 2016 Color Palette that embraces dark green in its Future Past theme creating a new version of the old. The image I have included above, has been repinned from this post I published a while ago more than 10K times! That gives a pretty clear impression on how popular the idea of a green wall color is. They call this tone Okete.

My favorite place to hang in Barcelona lately is exactly this lobby. Can’t get enough of the kind of green shade they have on their walls. The feeling is rather nice and cosy, glamorous and relaxing, all characteristics which obviously have to do with the overall decorating as well. But it’s very handy to ‘live’ it before you go and paint your own walls. G, x
I love green walls and have some in my own home too. Beautiful
Thanks for commenting, Mary!:)
I painted a room green, but the color is too bright, so I have to repaint. I love the green color recurring above, any idea what colors they may be? Would card room green or green smoke by farrow and ball be similar?
Hi Anne, the first image is from paint company Dulux.You should find your requested information on their site.
I would love a muted green colour in my dining room like the one in the last photo. It seems to be a hit with French art deco hotels too. And I love pink with it too!
Yes, the muted greens by Farrow&Ball are lovely in case you are looking for a reference!
