Decorating With Green

MonochromaticComplementarySplit Complementary


Perhaps one of the most pleasing palettes, analogous colors reside right next to each other on the color wheel. For example, a green analogous color scheme includes blue-green and yellow- green. Since they share a common component, these hues always look good together.

Go with a green analogous color scheme in your dining room and everyone is sure to admire your good taste! Green, blue-green and yellow-green make up this easy-to-love palette that borders on beach chic. And what's better is the combination is subtle enough that you likely won't tire of it any time soon.

If you're inspired by this dining room's refreshing tones, take the plunge and paint your walls a muted minty green, a close cousin of blue-green. With this pleasing hue as your backdrop, take the opportunity to sprinkle in subtle yellow-green accents to brighten things up a bit. This color can be a little intense if overused, so remember, just a few wisely chosen pieces will do.

To complete your enviable analogous color scheme, feature an area rug with threads of blue-green that tie back to your wall color. When selecting your furniture, medium- to light-oak wood tones will work wonderfully with your overall color palette while adding to your room's calming atmosphere.
