Green continues to have a moment in design, and it truly always belongs when you’re after a lifegiving organic feel at home. It’s not as if you have to paint all the walls in a room green to enjoy the paint color. Find a vintage accessory or piece of furniture to paint. If you love it, maybe grow bolder and paint utility room, kitchen, or bathroom cabinets. Find Serene Green Paint Colors to Elevate Your Next Project in this gallery of inspiring projects.
Serene Green Paint Colors to Try
Farrow & Ball Card Room Green No. 79
This gorgeous dark grey green is named after the study-like rooms favored in the Victorian period. Farrow and Ball calls it “unapologetic in its strength.”
Strong AND serene? I think so!
In this living room (above), Card Room Green is used only on the fireplace wall. The fireplace pops against it.
Smoke Green No. 47 by Farrow & Ball
Here’s a serene green paint color that appeared on my radar when Charlotte Reiss painted her French kitchen cupboards this color:
Isn’t it the perfect color with the antique reclaimed terracotta floor Charlotte chose for it!?!
Here’s the color’s description at F&B: “A smoky green blue, this colour was popular in interiors during the late 19th century. It has an irresistibly inviting deepness and weathered familiarity when used in exterior situations, while evoking calm and serenity when used inside.”
As you can see above, this green pairs well with warm wood and gold toned hardware.
Green Smoke also looks classic and gorgeous against dark brick on exterior shutters and trim.
I’m not sure a pretty white range (the one above is Ilve) has ever looked so good than this one next to Green Smoke painted cabinets. And that artisan-made pendant! I shared some favorite light fixtures recently:
Serene Green Paint Color Idea: SW Acacia Haze
When you’re after a sophisticated grey-green…
I love how Acacia Haze was used in a renovated bath:
The color looks so perfect in casual environments like this bedroom with a board and batten statement wall:
Need an idea for a color for a front door? The black accents work so well with this serene green.
Here’s the project where first I spied Acacia Haze:

A Unique Green to Make a Statement: Bancha No. 298
I have a sample of this unusual green which you may describe as olive green.
Farrow & Ball calls it a “mid-century modern green…perfect for those who want to embrace stronger colour in the home, its sober tone creates rooms that feel calm and serene – especially when combined with soft pinks and browns. Named after Japanese tea leaves, Bancha, like a cup of green tea, provides a feeling of security.”
Don’t you love it with terracotta?
Is it more bold than serene?
It creates a decidedly modern mood in the dining space above, yet seems perfectly suited for a traditional one below…

And how about a wild card!?!
