15 Green living room design ideas

A fresh living room is exactly what any home needs. The living room is usually the largest area of the house and the space where we receive guests and spend time together during the day. A simple and great way of creating a fresh interior design is by using the color green. Let’s take a look at some tips that can teach us how to use the color green in the living room.

Soothing pastel walls complemented by green accent cushions

If your living room is directly connected to the kitchen, then green is a great color because it can create the visual separation between these two spaces. Also, in this case you should use a more neutral tone in the kitchen for a simple décor. This way the living room will be like a pop of color. Still, don’t exaggerate.

You can mix different shades of green and also play with textures

The green walls give this living room a fresh touch

You could use a softer tone of green for the walls or you can leave them white and use green for the furniture and the decorations. Accent chairs, lamps, pendants or colorful decorative pillows are great ways of bringing some color into the room. Green living room designs will also be fashionable and fresh.

The white and green combination is always refreshing, especially with beige accents

There are lots of different greens out there and one of them is lime green. This would also have to be one of my favorite colors. It’s so vibrant and fresh but it’s also a strong color so try not to exaggerate. If you want to create a modern feel for your green living room then you should focus on the furniture. Also, try big decorations in bright colors, in this case green.

Of course, a green living room design doesn’t have to be exclusive. You can also create beautiful color contrasts by combining tones such as orange, beige, brown, yellow and include them for example in the decorative pillows, drapes, walls, etc.{1,2 and 3 from here,and rest from bhg}
