The color green is almost universally positive. It make us think of nature, spring and youth. Green is an uplifting color that communicates growth.
Green hues soothe and relax, particularly when used as wall paint. But how do you keep from choosing the wrong green?
Green comes in nearly infinite hues and shades. There are dark-greens and light-greens, warm greens and cool greens. Jade, emerald, forest, celadon, jungle and mint … even the names are infinite.

2 / GREEN GREY
Grey is one of the most popular neutral colors that is easy to mix and match and is great for every space. But a grey living room can look too boring and impersonal and adding different hues of greens to it, makes a whole lot of difference. This shade of green looks moody but elegant.
3 / SAGE
Pinterest put out their top 100 list of pins list and it looks like decorating with sage green is a favorite among pinners.
This green hue is a soft, muted color that’s easy to decorate with, you can use it to freshen up a space, hence why it’s being dubbed a new neutral.
