Top 14 Green Paint Colors Recommended by Designers

This summer, green in all its varied hues—from vintage Y2K lime to earthy olive—is having a major moment. It has been dubbed the "it" hue of the year by both fashion publications and design periodicals, and as designers, paint immediately comes to mind.

Find below the 14 go-to Benjamin Moore green paint colors in NYC used by designers for every mood, style, and space:


1. Gray Green by Benjamin Moore-:
Look no further than Farrow & Ball's French Gray for a dash of color that yet serves as a neutral. This soft green with a grey undertone is a minimalist's dream since it adds just the right amount of visual appeal while remaining firmly in the middle of the spectrum. French Gray should be used throughout, with dark grey architectural details and a rich cream sofa adding contrast.

2. Moss Green: Wethersfield Moss by Benjamin Moore-:
The painted wainscoting in this moss green setting is everything we've ever liked about painted wainscoting. Imagine how different the woodwork would look if Benjamin Moore's Wethersfield Moss had been used instead. It also works beautifully with the feather grey wallpaper and cognac bedside chairs.

3. Sage Green: Saybrook Sage by Benjamin Moore-:
Sage is a gentle, earthy green that is the ultimate grounded neutral and provides color to a room while remaining simple, so it's understandable why it's so popular (sorry, we had to go for it). Benjamin Moore's Saybrook Sage actually sings with a laid-back color scheme and natural accessories, as shown in the living area above. Jute lovers, rejoice.

4. Teal Green: Teal Ocean by Benjamin Moore-:
Teal green is not a color for the timid, yet it is a staple in glossy, vibrant environments that are bursting with character. Although Teal Ocean by Benjamin Moore is undoubtedly dramatic, it pairs well with neutral hues like grey and white. Without a gold accent, teal just isn't complete (or 10).

5. Juniper Green by Benjamin Moore-:

When looking for a distinct, organic, and striking green paint color, a smokey juniper green offers everything and more. Floor-to-ceiling paneling completes the aesthetic. Combine Farrow & Ball's Green Smoke with soft wood textures and black accents for visual contrast.


6. Olive Green by Benjamin Moore-:
Treron green by Farrow & Ball is a lovely, soft olive color that is earthy and natural and adds depth to this modern-traditional living room. It's a timeless color scheme when paired with soft milk, cognac leather, and striking black. Advice: If you're adding green to a more contemporary environment, choose a chilly undertone to match the style.


7. Mint Green: Kennebunkport by Benjamin Moore-:
Kennebunkport by Benjamin Moore is a charming, traditional, and slightly preppy paint color that brings the warmth and charm of coastal Maine right into your home. This minty color really shines when combined with pure white, organic textures, and a hint of warm cream, as shown in the bedroom above.


8. Jade Green: Deep Jungle by Benjamin Moore-:
Kennebunkport by Benjamin Moore is a charming, traditional, and slightly preppy paint color that brings the warmth and charm of coastal Maine right into your home. This minty color really shines when combined with pure white, organic textures, and a hint of warm cream, as shown in the bedroom above.


9. Laurel Green: Great Barrington Green by Benjamin Moore:
If you're looking for an organic yet rich green paint color, laurel green is a great option because it's natural and saturated. For a somber, laid-back atmosphere, we especially adore Benjamin Moore's Great Barrington Green on the walls, ceiling, and trim. A short can of paint will do wonders to update worn-out wall-to-wall wood paneling.


10. Deep Green: Hunter by Benjamin Moore-:
Want to add some flavor to your room without straying too far from tradition? All indications point to a stunning hunter green, specifically Benjamin Moore's Hunter Green. In particular, when combined with a stunning oak table, an antique area rug, and a roaring fireplace, it reads as punchy but still classic.

11. Emerald Green: Buffett Green by Benjamin Moore-:
Emerald is a bright diamond in the realm of jewel tones, which is understandable given that it is elegant, assertive, and slightly energizing. We especially adore Benjamin Moore's Buffett Green painted from top to bottom in glam, mid-century modern settings because it absolutely screams when combined with warm, dusty pink wood and a touch of yellow.

12. Deep Sea Green: Narragansett by Benjamin Moore-:
Narragansett by Benjamin Moore is a captivating, deep sea green that feels as deep and enigmatic as the ocean itself if you want moody with a capital "M." The blue-green paint hue wonderfully complements the grey, cognac, and rusty red accent colors while bringing out the deep blues in the area rug.

13. Pistachio Green by Benjamin Moore-:
Narragansett by Benjamin Moore is a captivating, deep sea green that feels as deep and enigmatic as the ocean itself if you want moody with a capital "M." The blue-green paint hue wonderfully complements the grey, cognac, and rusty red accent colors while bringing out the deep blues in the area rug.


14. Avocado Green: Shady Lane by Benjamin Moore-:
Bright avocado green accent walls may give your room serious style points, especially when combined with gold, black, and a hint of current cane. Benjamin Moore's Shady Lane paint color has the ideal bright yellow undertone and feels just a touch retro.
