There are so many reasons why green is a go-to color for the home. Not only does it bring the vibe of the outdoors into your space, it can make you feel calm and relaxed after a long day, too. If you’re on the fence about this color choice, we’ve got tips and photos that can help you decide.

“Green is easy to work with since it gives a feeling of being connected to nature. It’s the same as the color of leaves, which basically matches anything around us. It’s like having the color of the garden and bringing it inside the home,” shares interior designer Van Acuna-Solana. Whether you’re using it as an accent hue or as a combo with another refreshing color, you can always count on green to turn your home into a mini oasis:

1. Welcome guests with an enchanting entryway.

Liven up a green entryway with a huge vintage mirror. Complete the look with a unique console table that can hold a table lamp and a vase of flowers. With conversation pieces as part of your welcoming committee, you can limit the accessories to two or three.

Find similar pieces at Crate & Barrel.

2. Use it as an accent color in the living area.

Whether you're planning an accent wall or shopping for wallpaper, green can be on top of your list. It can easily work as an accent color injected through pillows, curtains, upholstery and even plants. A dark green wall can pop out when paired with white or neutrals.

3. Combine it with white for a calming cooking area.

According to Van, you need to choose color combinations carefully. Green is a versatile choice that can work with white, blue, pink, or red. "As long as you stick to a theme or the same tonal color, meaning, keep it all in the family of pastels, or all in the tonal theme of brights," the designer says. In the kitchen, you may opt for lime green tiles set in a herringbone pattern as your backsplash. When paired with white countertops, shelves, and cabinets, you'll surely feel inspired to whip up meals in minutes.

4. Turn your bedroom into a paradise-like escape with pastel green.

There's nothing like pastel green in a cozy bedroom. Whether you're painting walls, updating linen, or bringing in small accessories, green can help you achieve a resort-like bedroom you'll never want to leave. Van affirms the use of green hues in the family room or bedroom as it's perfect for rest and relaxation. She suggests working with celery or light pistachio tint as options as these are easy on the eye.

5. When paired with wood, green can help you achieve a country-inspired T&B.

Feel like you're in a secret cottage each time you take a bath in a T&B with light green walls and wooden flooring. Choosing the right kind of flooring that will last in a bathroom is a bit tricky—you have the option of using engineered wood and laminate flooring. It's best to discuss this with a design professional. Complete your luxe experience and invest in a clawfoot tub.
