French Green Paint Colors, Serene French Blue-Greens & Free Shipping on Samples

The other day I shared a romantic rustic cottage with French country interiors and its gorgeous green accents prompted some of us to ponder paint colors. My thoughts immediately turned to a lovely green used as an accent on so many exteriors in France: Vert Olivier (Tollens). This is the green paint color gracing the shutters on Vivi Et Margot’s French farmhouse in Western France. Today’s French Green Paint Colors are strikingly similar for those of us far from France.

    There are some greens that really speak to me, especially ones that have a quiet sort of sagey undertone.

    In my current home’s laundry room, I did a texture on the wall that resembled the old walls we saw while visiting Europe. Then I painted with PPG’s French Gray Linen in a flat sheen. It looks marvelous and quite authentic. Though the color’s name has ‘gray’ it has an enticing sagey undertone that looks great in the sun-filled room.

    Another green I’m getting excited to use in our ‘new to us house’ is the pretty 1950’s perfect condition ceramic green lamps I got from my great aunt years ago. They’ll add just the right little bit of green to the guest room.

    Green—a lovely inspiration from Nature in all her prettiest forms. 🙂

      Of course I’ll be swiftly googling that French Gray Linen – I love those green-grays. How lucky to have a laundry room with lots of light! The lamps sound perfect – what a lovely way to bring in that color without being drenched in it. Thanks so much for your beautiful feedback, Connie.

    I love this color – so warm and relaxing in any space, and how fun are the appliances? The perfect way to add a pop of color to any kitchen. Happy Monday, sweet friend!
