Green symbolizes nature and the natural world, evokes feelings of tranquility, health and peace, and provides comfort and relaxation. Because of its relaxing effect, use green paint in any room where you want to feel rested, such as living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms.
A yellowish green is warm and inviting, while a bluish green is cool and calming. Soft, muted greens also can be used as neutral colors and go well with beige and brown. When used with complementary purple shades in muted tones, khaki green brings relaxation to spaces like living rooms. To keep khaki green from being overwhelming, balance it with black and white so the green paint pops as an accent. It can also be toned down with neutrals like cream, beige and brown.
