The One Thing You Should Be Doing Before You Decorate Your House
Add the Color in an Unexpected Space
Elsie made her laundry time cheerier with a fresh coat of paint. The hunter green adds a pop of color in an unexpected spot and creates eye-catching contrast against the white shelves—but without being too loud.
Introduce a Statement Piece in the Color
Here, this luxe green sofa adds a mid-century mod touch to the space. Because the sofa is a more vibrant shade of green than the deep hunter green seen throughout the rest of the home, it still complements the color palette without looking too matchy.
Work the Palette into an All-White Kitchen
Mix things up in the kitchen with colored cabinets in a shade that's unexpected, yet calming. The color of these deep green cabinets is also seen in the laundry room, so the repetition pulls the space together.
Let the Front Door Set the Tone
Nothing can make or break your home's curb appeal like the front door color. It's the first thing guests see, so you want to make sure it's right. Here, we made sure to swatch the green paint colors on the door before making the final selection since the color typically looks different once dry versus in the can.
