Hints of sage, mint, and moss can add colorful character to your custom home’s interior and exterior living space. However, if used too generously, your home can turn into a Leprechaun’s lair. Just like it is found in nature, green pairs well with both neutral and vibrant colors. So how do you pick the perfect paint? Here are a few inspirational color combinations to make your home scream green this St. Paddy’s Day.
Sage and Cream: Warm, inviting and the perfect backdrop for eating a magical bowl of lucky charms cereal. This white and green color combo does wonders for the kitchen. New home builders Tampa can pair accent walls (try Sherwin Williams “Great Green”) with creamy white trim and cabinetry for a calm and collective kitchen. To go even greener, incorporate a soft sage colored center island.
Celery and Dark Brown: For both indoor and outdoor living areas, these colors work well together to offer a relaxing, yet appealing vibe. Tampa custom home builders love the look of rich brown flooring, accented with green paint (try Sherwin Williams “Mesclun”) and fabrics. Bright leafy houseplants will complete the look of your living area.
Guacamole and Charcoal: This bold mixture creates a sharp contrast that adds depth to small spaces, making it a great option for the laundry room. This cool, light green (try Sherwin Williams “Witty Green”) looks great in Key West inspired new homes in Tampa Bay. If you’re feeling really lucky about your laundry, add a tiled backsplash with a variety of green hues.
Mint and Sky Blue: This cheery color palette creates a neutral vibe for both boy’s and girl’s spaces – which is why it works great for shared homework nooks and playrooms. Try Sherwin Williams “Baize” paired with spots of sky blue, white built-ins and upbeat furniture and décor. Your children will be inspired to study and complete homework projects.
Sea Foam Green and Stormy Grey: This warm and muted color choice takes the lead for bedrooms and bathrooms. Whether coastal inspired or contemporary, these colors balance each other well. Mix white marble vanities with grayish cabinetry and delicate paint shades and tiles (try Sherwin Williams “Cucumber” ). This color combination will make your guests green with envy.
Key Lime and Pretty Pink: A no-brainer for a girl’s bedroom or playroom, this bold and bright color combination (try Sherwin Williams “Dancing Green”) is fun and feminine. It also works well with either white or darker brown woods for furniture and built-ins. Although teenage girls are notorious for changing their mind as often as they change their clothes, these colors should last them from the age of 8 to 18.
While St. Paddy’s Day typically brings thoughts of four-leaf clovers and the perfect pint of Guinness, it can also evoke inspirational color palettes. To learn more about how we create one of a kind homes tailored to each individual homeowner’s lifestyle, contact us.
