Decorating With Green

Monochromatic

This sophisticated and soothing scheme lends itself well to modern spaces. It uses tints and shades of one color, staying within the same column on the color wheel. A monochromatic scheme for green might feature a range of tones from celery to deep olive.

What makes a monochromatic room so restful is that it features the same color in varying tints and shades, so it's a very soothing color palette for your eyes. And by playing with the different values – lightness and darkness – of green, you'll add depth and interest to your space.

To recreate this gorgeous living room in your own home, look at the color wheel and choose furniture, paint and accents from different tiers within the green column. In this space, the pale green sofa acts as a beautiful backdrop for the deeper greens found in the accent pillows. To balance these light and dark greens, choose a green that's somewhere in between for your wall color.

For a beautiful finishing touch, remember to reach for neutrals. A couple of cream accent chairs will do wonders for your room and keep guests from thinking that you've gone a little too gaga for green!
