There are 2 things that you need to think about when decorating your bedroom with a green paint color palette. 1) What shade of green paint do you want to go with, and 2) How much green are you going to use? The green bedroom ideas below will help you transform your space.
1. The Shade of Green
Dark greens create a more intimate, romantic, and luxury feeling in the bedroom – just like the bedroom in picture (1). Then you have the lighter greens, seen in bedrooms (2 – 4).
The bright green in picture (5) combined with the wainscoting is ideal for modern homes.
And then you start getting to the really light green, like the mint green bedroom in picture (6), which will create a bright and spacious feeling room.
What makes the dark green bedroom in picture (1) look so good, is that the paint has a subtle texture to it. This creates some depth to the flat wall. This can be easily achieved by using a sponge and two different shades of paint (Textured Wall Painting Ideas: From Faux Wood to Linen Effects).
2. How Much Green?
If you only want a little bit of green, and want to avoid repainting the room, then go with white walls and decorate the space with green linens, green furniture, or green bedroom decor – the bedroom in picture (7) is a good example of this. If you go with white walls, you could simply change the sheets to a different color (blue, grey) to give the space a complete color palette make over.
On the other side of the spectrum you have the space in picture (8), with all of the walls painted green and even the ceiling is painted green. But it is the large window that brings in the natural light, and the use of white bed linens that help make the space not be a dark and gloomy place.
A good middle ground is to paint a feature wall green. This is one wall in the room that you choose to stand out, while the other walls are painted a neutral color (white, grey, black). In the bedroom, this feature wall is usually the wall behind the headboard.
