Green runs the gamut from cooler, blue-tinged jade greens into warmer, citrusy yellow-greens. Cooler greens tend to make us feel relaxed and soothed — conducive to getting a great night’s sleep. Warmer greens, especially the bolder colors, will help us wake up and feel more energized. So whether you’re trying to find a bedroom colour that is de-stressing and calming, or you want some help bounding out of bed in the early hours, you can look to green to help.
I’ve gathered an assortment of my favorite green paint colors for bedrooms combined with eight lovely bedrooms on that wear the hue well.

I find this pulling on green bedroom attractive to the mix of bold and soft colour as well as the charming accessories and furniture. The green walls really help the timber beams stand out, but the rest of the palette remains light and calming. It is a relaxed, airy room that I think would appeal to many — perfect for a guest room.

Rather than painting the four bedroom walls and departing the ceiling white, mix it up a bit and paint the ceiling and one wall or part of one wall your chosen green colour. Be sure to pick up the colour elsewhere in the room. Even tiny accents of it will add visual rhythm, causing the eye to move across the room and the viewer to appreciate each of the amazing information.

Here’s another instance of a green ceiling paired using light-colored walls. While the preceding example had a minimum palette of just white and green, this bedroom includes many distinct colors of yellow-green blended with whites and wood tones. It is brilliant but feels tender and harmonious.

This is a more dramatic green that offers a contemporary, fun and young vibe. This assertive shade stands up nicely to darker, cooler wood tones.
Dijeau Poage Construction
I’m a sucker for chartreuse, especially when used on just one or two walls and paired with neutrals and light, warm woods. It is another fun and contemporary palette. And in case your love to your colour must wane, it’s simple to repaint using a new favorite.
MOKULUA High Performance Builder
Here’s a cooler minty green that works nicely with a variety of decorative designs to make a restful space. Whether an all-white room feels dull to you but you aren’t a lover of bold colour in your walls, consider a shade of light cool green.

Celery green is one of my favorite alternative neutrals. If you want something soothing and light and colors of beige, white or gray just will not cut it, look for a soft green with a slight yellowish cast to it, such as this one. It is an elegant grown-up green.
Not into green-painted ceilings or walls? No Problem. Green has been enjoying a long run as a favorite colour for home furnishings, and that means you can find lots of pretty green bedroom textiles and decorative accessories to work into your space.
Pull a shade of green that you like from an existing decorative item, such as your comforter, and also have your paint retailer match it. Then you can paint any furniture that needs some TLC. You would be amazed what a couple of coats of paint at a pleasing color can do for an old dresser, bed frame or bookcase.
