Add verdant hues to a room and the space immediately becomes fresher, more harmonious, more alive. Here, designers share the green paint colors they love now.

It mixes so well with Carrara and calacatta marbles. We love pairing marble and mint, and we often introduce brass lighting or hardware to warm it all up. This color also works well with Benjamin Moore’s Swiss Coffee.

I’m loving saturated and vibrant jewel-tone greens. We used this to paint the cabinets in a butler’s pantry that is sophisticated and timeless. Bold colors like this are best used in smaller, contained spaces such as pantries or powder baths where you can be more creative in your color choices. Saturated greens team well with warm, white-oak wood tones, black and whites, and gold metals.

Green has a place in any room. When you play with its tone and saturation, it can be deep and dramatic or quite calm. This particular green has a little less yellow, leaning more toward a blue green. It reminds me of nature and the reflection dance that happens when the sky and surrounding green trees reflect onto water.
