It's your lucky day, because we are talking about our favorite green paint colors! There are so many shades and hues of green, it can be tricky to pick just the right one. We've narrowed down our top six green paint colors and they range from "is it green or is it neutral" to "yep, that's for sure green".
Our Top 6 Green paint colors:
01. Palm Leaf
If you're looking for a timeless green make sure not to over look palm leaf. This paint by Sherwin Williams a yellow green that can pair nicely with just about any warm wood tone. It does take on a life of its one depending on what it's surrounded by. It will pull more yellow, and feel a little more on the bright side when paired with light woods, and white. But it can also feel nice and rich when paired with walnut tones and darker neutrals.
Pro Tip: Don't be scared of color. Find a timeless color that speaks to you and make sure you get samples so you can see the color in every light before you take the plunge.

Some More Pro Tips For Selecting Paint
How to know which shade is right
When selecting paint it's always best to order samples. At Glass House Collective we like to use Samplize for all of our paint samples. These samples are 8" x 12" with an adhesive back so you can move them to any wall at any time of the day. We highly suggest doing this and even leaving a couple options up for a couple days.
Samples are also important when paring whites. Most often we like to use crisp bright whites for our base boards and casing and soft whites for our walls and ceilings. When painting walls and cabinetry we usually use two different shades of white to give visual interest. But we also rely on the paint sheen to give our shades of white subtle contrast.
What about sheen?
Paint sheen is an important aspect in selecting paint. Here is a quick list of what sheen we like to use where. For an in depth view of paint sheens be sure to read our blog post all about paint finishes.
