They have a calming effect that relieves people of their stress and anxiety.

Warm green is a highly versatile color, as it can work as a subtle neutral wall color or a standout accent. 

In a room, warm green evokes a feeling of peace, comfort, and security, which is why it’s often used in children’s playrooms and offices.

And since it’s restful for the eyes, it can relieve people of stress and produce positive emotions. 

15 Best Warm Green Paint Colors for Your Home

Here are some of the best warm green paint colors to choose from: 

1. Benjamin Moore Limesicle 

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways 

Benjamin Moore Limesicle is a light yellow-green paint reminiscent of meadows and dunes. 

It pairs well with other light neutrals such as taupe and beige, but don’t let that stop you from using deep, dark jewel tones as Limesicle looks equally as stunning with them!

This color is best used in small rooms without much sunlight, as it can brighten a dark space and make it bigger. 

2. Behr Avocado Whip 

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, kitchens

Warm and creamy, Avocado Whip is a pale-green paint with a yellow undertone.

It’s best used in rooms with large windows and bright light so as to not turn the color into acid green. 

Pair it with browns, creamy whites, and dull blues, and watch it shine. 

3. Sherwin Williams Ancient Marble 

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens

Sherwin Williams Ancient Marble is one of the more popular Sherwin Williams colors on this list. 

Though it appears greige at first glance, it’s actually a warm sage green paint color. 

As such, it’s best complemented with shades of cool gray, whites, and dark sage greens. 

It also works in shades of brown, tan, beige, and taupe. 

With an LRV of 60, it’s neither too light nor too dark. Therefore, it can be used in both small and large rooms. 

During the day, the color appears more greenish-gray. When night falls, it’ll look smooth and dark, faint beige in color. 

4. Benjamin Moore Guilford Green

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens 

Guilford Green is a pleasing gentle green color with warm undertones. 

It’s Benjamin Moore’s 2015 Color of the Year and has since been one of the more popular muddy greens in the Benjamin Moore catalog. 

It’s warm and earthy—the perfect color to cozy up your home. 

If you’re going for a country or farmhouse look, Guilford Green is definitely a color you should consider. 

5. Benjamin Moore October Mist 

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, offices, and bathrooms 

October Mist was nominated in Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year of 2022, and it’s easy to see why. 

This gorgeous shade of subtle sage quietly anchors a space without fading too much in the background.

When placed in the color wheel, October Mist is leaning more toward a warm tone.

It has a faint yellow that looks particularly charming with similar warm shades, like Springfield Sage and Venetian Portico. 

6. Valspar Sassy Green 

 

Best for: Bedrooms, bathrooms, hallways, exteriors

If you want to add a pop of green to your space, you won’t be disappointed with Sassy Green.

With undertones of yellow and brown, Sassy Green is fresh, inviting, and spring-like. 

It’s livelier than its sage or mint counterparts, making it a great option for homeowners that adore bold colors. 

Sassy Green works well with jewel-toned colors, such as yellow, red, blue, and purple.

Similarly, it looks amazing with natural browns and creamy whites. 

7. Farrow and Ball Calke Green

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms

Farrow and Ball Calke Green add a luxurious touch to a room, especially when paired with a mix of metals. 

Whether it’s gold or brass, silver or copper, or even brushed nickel, they all work well with Calke Green. 

It also looks amazing with white furnishings, such as white cabinets, tables, and couches.

The contrast between white and dark is exquisite with this color. 

Since it’s quite dark, you only want to use it as a wall color in big rooms.

In small rooms, it works great as an eye-catching wall accent. 

8. Benjamin Moore Dry Sage

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, furniture 

With an LRV of 34.63, Dry Sage is on the darker end color spectrum.

It’s a bold sage green paint color with a notably earthy look, thanks to its deep yellow and brown undertones. 

This color is best used in spacious rooms with tons of natural light so as to not shrink and darken the room. 

It beautifully complements natural decor elements, so browns, greens, and creams work perfectly with this color.

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and accents 

Named after the gem it represents, Sherwin William Green Onyx is a classic, mid-aged green paint that works especially well with creams, terracotta, and rich dark colors. 

It has subtle yellow and brown undertones that it often goes unnoticed unless bathed in sunlight. 

10. Behr Bitter Sage

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens

Bitter Sage is a light to mid-green color that cultivates neutrality and balance in any space. 

It’s a lightened olive green, with warm yellow and tan undertones.

As such, it’s best paired with creamy whites, airy blues, and lighter greens.  

11. Farrow and Ball Lichen

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and accents 

Named after creeping algae that covers stone so beautifully, Farrow and Ball Lichen is a classic, mid-aged green that works especially well with creams, terracotta, and rich dark colors.

It has a subtle yellow and gold undertone that often goes unnoticed unless bathed in sunlight.

12. Benjamin Moore Antique Pewter 

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, and large kitchens

Inspired by the color of rich patina, Antique Pewter is a green-gray hue with a touch of warmth. 

It’s essentially the darker, much warmer variant of Arctic Shadows.

It could be classified as olive green, except it’s more modern looking thanks to its soft neutral base. 

13. Sherwin Williams Retreat

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen

Sherwin Williams Retreat is a dark green paint color with deep gray-green undertones. 

Though bold, this color exhibits an overall neutral vibe, making it a wonderful color to come home to after a stressful day at work. 

It works in both big and small spaces, but for the latter, it’s best used as an accent as it might turn a small room even smaller. 

For big rooms, pair it with creamy or stark whites, greiges, darker or lighter grays, lighter yellows, and burnt oranges. 

To give the best results, use this color in the south or west-facing rooms where sunshine can neutralize the yellow. 

14. Farrow and Ball Card Room Green

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, offices, hallways, and kitchens 

Named after Victorian study rooms, Card Room Green is a dark gray-green that comes alive when contrasted with creamy whites, lighter greens, and natural browns. 

It brings out the natural tones of wooden furniture, and links beautifully with coastal, contemporary, and Victorian-themed homes. 

15. Benjamin Moore Mossy Oak

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms

Benjamin Moore Mossy Oak is a no-nonsense warm sage green paint color with undertones of yellow, brown, and a hint of gray. 

It belongs to Benjamin Moore’s Designer Classics Collection, so it’s a beautiful and fail-safe color that works with nearly every color scheme. 

However, it works best with creamy whites and grays, browns and golds, and light sage greens. 

16. Behr Milk Thistle

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, offices, hallways, and kitchens 

Named after the dull green leaves that grow on Thistle flowers, Milk Thistle is a dark gray-green that comes alive when contrasted with creamy whites, lighter greens, and natural browns. 

It brings out the natural tones of wooden furniture, and links beautifully with coastal, contemporary, and Victorian-themed homes.

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, furniture, and floors

Reminiscent of the plant it’s named from, Valspar Warm Eucalyptus is just as soothing and harmonious. 

It’s a nice balance of cool and warm, but it leans more towards the latter thanks to its subtle yellow undertones. 

It’s a great color to use on wall accents, furniture, and floors, where you want a deep richness to anchor a room. 

18. Benjamin Moore Peale Green  

 

Best for: Living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms

Peale Green is a toned-down grassy green with a rich earthy quality. It’s dark and brooding, but not overwhelmingly so. 

It works stunningly with dark wood and brass finishes, as well as black trimmings and accents. 

Since it has a considerable amount of depth and heaviness, this color is best used in large, bright rooms.

If used in a small room that doesn’t receive much natural light, it can potentially weigh a room down.

There you have it, folks; some of the best warm green paint colors you’ll find from high-quality paint brands! 

Warm green paint can turn a space into a vibrant playroom, a serene living room, or a luxurious bedroom. 

Dark greens, like forest and emerald green, pair well with similarly rich colors like cranberry and navy blue. 

Mossy greens and sage greens, on the other hand, look beautiful with warmer colors of yellow, salmon, gold, coral, and creamy whites.
