Colour Lookbook: Find the Right Combinations To Blend with a Green Colour Scheme


If you’re sat at home asking yourself “what colour goes with green?”, stop what you’re doing and read our latest Colour Lookbook. It has all of the answers and colour combinations you’ve been searching for. 

There are lots of reasons to decorate your home with green paint. Greens can be as soothing and calming, as they can be moody and dramatic. Green paint also reconnects us with nature. 

What’s more, there are many colours that go with green walls. From soft blues to cool greys, it’s all about picking the right complementary colours for you and your home. 


Here are 4 colour combinations for you to consider

Blues and greens

You can’t go wrong with a blue and green colour scheme. That’s because both shades are inspired by nature, with green representing the land and blue echoing the sea and sky.

For this communal space, we’ve chosen Tranquil Dawn and Faded Sky. Two soft, gentle shades that when paired with the earthy tones of Brave Ground, create a harmonious colour scheme that will make you feel calm and at ease.

Brave Ground and greens

Brave Ground has many special qualities – which is why it’s our Colour of the Year for 2021. This warm neutral connects us back to nature and provides a firm foundation for change. It’s also the perfect partner for green.  

You’ll find many inspiring colour combinations in its Earth palette. Why not team Brave Ground with last year’s Colour of the Year, Tranquil Dawn and bring a fresh feel to your contemporary living room?

Grey and green
Leaning towards a grey and green colour scheme? Great idea! It’s one those rare colour combinations that gives you the best of both worlds. The green brings a warmth and softness, whereas the grey adds an elegance and sophistication. Take a look at this kitchen area, we teamed Warm Pewter with Tranquil Dawn for the perfect balance of warm and cool colours.

Dark greens
If there’s a colour scheme that can hold its own, it’s dark green. Deep shades of green don’t necessarily need complementary colours to bring the wow factor. Layering your walls in forest greens like Minted Glory or jewel tones like Emerald Glade will make strong statements without any supporting colours, whatever room you’re redecorating.
