Tips For Bringing Green Into The Bedroom
If you want to add green to your bedroom but aren’t sure where to start, here are some tips and inspiration! There are multiple ways in which you can add green to your bedroom.
Obviously, you can paint your walls green, but there are other ways to add green as well. Green is a great accent color and can be added to your bedroom through artwork, furniture, bedding, and even wallpaper.
You add green curtains to a cream room to add a sense of soothing elegance to your bedroom.
A green velvet headboard paired with vintage artwork and nightstands is basically never a bad idea…
Consider using two different shades of olive or sage green, on connecting walls. Or, create a two tone effect with two different shades of green paint. This will create a soothing, earthy vibe that feels cozy and immersive. You can bring in even more feelings of being immersed in nature by adding plants, natural wood, and wood tones in your fabric and decor.
If you want to keep your room feeling fresh and bright, consider painting the walls white, using emerald bedding, and sprinkling in some green decor (including plants!). Then add pops of black through a headboard or other decor to add a bit of contrast.
Choose a green paint color with gray undertones and pair it with sage green and mustard yellow bedding for a modern boho look. Light wooden floors and brown and tan accents will keep the room from feeling too dark. The pampas grass on the round rattan table adds a nice textural element to this muted green bedroom!
Bringing in a dark green piece of furniture into your room can add sophisticated look without having to actually paint the walls.
Use a green patterned wallpaper for a traditional and textured look. Using solid bedding will add to the drama of the wallpaper making the walls stand out as a work of art. Add in some solid throw pillows to tie it all together. I have a ton of suggestions on how to mix and match throw pillows right here!
I’m loving the idea of a dark, moody green maximalist bedroom – what do you think? Wallpaper, pattern upon pattern, brass accents and velvet bedding. SWOON!
Moody Green Bedrooms
Green bedrooms most commonly come off as very moody. In my opinion, moody green rooms are also very sophisticated and cozy at the same time.
Pair your moody green with creams and tans to keep the room from getting too dark.
Add in a dramatic headboard or four-poster bed, statement lighting and your moody bedroom will feel super luxurious.
Dark Green Bedrooms
If you love the color green and want to go bold then why not fully embrace the color and paint the wall and ceiling a rich, saturated green?!
This beautifully designed bedroom below is perfect for those who love a traditional style and the color green. Plus, I think the dark walls and ceiling make the space feel super cozy.
Dark green bedrooms can be daring and give off the moody vibes that we already talked about.
However, dark green bedrooms can also be energetic and fun. Pops of color through the artwork on the wall is a fun way to brighten up a bedroom with dark green painted walls.
Monochromatic Green Bedroom
Going all green may seem a bit risky, but since green can evoke feelings of abundance and peace, why not try it out? You can always paint it another color if after awhile you decide it’s not for you 🙂
You could go for a bright look by using lighter green tones and adding variations with different patterns in your bedding or even with a green mural, such as the one below from Photowall!
Go all in (hello green carpet in the picture above?!) or dial it back a bit by keeping your floors a neutral color.
Recommended Green Bedroom Palettes
I love this pastel pink bedroom paired with a sage green velvet headboard! The rich brown velvet bolster pillow and the dark nightstand help ground the room.
Light sage walls paired with natural woods and tans will give you that peaceful feeling of being outdoors. Decorate with plants and add woven features making the room even more snug and comfy. The bedding matching the wall color helps add to that sense of serenity.
Olive and hunter-greens paired with terracotta accents is an alluring combination. Use this color combo with natural sanded floors and your own personal touches for a cushy contemporary look. The white headboard below is an unexpected choice and works really well as a neutral backdrop for the color palette.
Modern Green Bedroom Ideas
Try a more minimal look with color block white and sage walls, modern art and light fixtures. Keep the bedding neutral while adding in a gray throw blanket for texture. Sage throw pillows that match the wall will tie it all together.
If you want a clean modern look, include light wooden floors and furniture that matches.
Clean lines, like in the picture below, will also help you obtain that classic modern look.
Maybe you can’t decide if you want a green bedroom or if blue would be more your style. Make sure you check out my post on Beautiful Blue Bedroom Ideas to see if a traditional blue bedroom would be more your style.
Traditional Green Bedroom Ideas
If you want a traditional green bedroom, or a vintage green bedroom, the furniture that you bring into the room is going to make a huge difference in how the style of your room will turn out. The patterns you choose will also make a big difference in whether or not you end up with a traditional style bedroom.
Dark green walls, perhaps a four poster bed, lots of textured throw pillows, and cotton and velvet fabrics, are some of the elements that create a perfect traditional green bedroom.
The bedroom pictured below has traditional architecture but modern furnishing – a great balance! I love the dark muted green painted doorway that leads you into the gray and green bedroom.
