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.

Green Inspiration Beyond Paint Colors!
Everyone seems to have a different idea of what constitutes a French green…what’s your take? Find a charming post about blues and greens HERE and another HERE. In one chapter of life, I painted a bunch of rooms Restoration Hardware sage green, in another chapter I painted my kitchen and dining room a minty green inspired by Mary Engelbreit’s St. Louis home…have experience with pistachio, moss, sage, or olive?
Peace to you right where you are.
