Creating a Dark Green Colour Scheme

If you are looking for a dark green colour scheme throughout a room or area of your home, you should start by buying some sample pots. We recommend painting your chosen samples on a piece of A4 paper and moving them around the room at different times throughout the day to see how the colours change in the different lights throughout the day. 

Dark greens can be anywhere from rich green blue tones to almost black tones so always think carefully about the shade you choose and what you pair it with. Large rooms with lots of light can take darker shades of green more easily than smaller rooms with little light. You might want to consider painting your woodwork the same colour as the walls, often seen in period properties with high ceilngs and deep skirtings but you can also paint them a shade lighter or darker green as a contrast and still achieve that colour drench finish.

Don't forget the ceiling. Leaving it bright white can throw the whole scheme off so try a warmer shade of white or a neutral colour here to avoid creating a vacuum.



Little Greene Hopper pairs well with a lighter citrine shade as shown here in a hallway. Painting hall panelling in a darker shade like dark green is a great idea in busy households with kids and dogs. 


Benjamin Moore Courtyard Green is a rich, true green paint colour. It looks as good on exteriors as it does on interiors and pairs brilliantly with dark wood.


Dulux Heritage Waxed Khaki is a grey-based green. It has a calming feel to it and works well in home offices, bedrooms and living areas.

Where to use Dark Green paint?

Dark green paint can be used anywhere in your home. If you have a large room or a room with lots of light, be bold and try the colour drenching trend of painting walls, skirting and even the ceiling in your chosen colour. If the room or area you are renovating is lacking in light, consider a feature wall or half-height panelling to incorporate the colour without making the room feel small or too dark. If you're looking to create a cosy nook in a small room, don't worry about  it being too dark and instead embrace the darkness and use soft furnishing and artificial lighting from lamps to small wall lights to create a calming atmosphere.


Farrow and Ball Beverly works well in a kitchen environment as well as in dining rooms and sitting rooms. Here it's paired with Farrow and Ball Selvedge, a mid blue tone.


Little Greene Ambleside is dark green with muted blue undertones. It works well in a bedroom where a calm, relaxing mood is needed.


Paint and Paper Library Hunter Dunn is a rich, dark green that creates a moody but relaxed atmosphere when used in a sitting room or drawing room.
