You will be with these fab shades to propel you into fall.

High Park is a rich green, perfect for autumn, but classic and subtle enough to enjoy year round. From Benjamin Moore’s Classic Collection, it’s easily paired with gray and cream accents.

Pros and cons


Green takes us down a notch. It’s on the cool side of the color spectrum, so we associate it with nature. Think lush forests and trees, and that’s where green gets its restful reputation.


Of course, interpretation is subjective, so if you’re not in the best mood, green’s inspired calm could lead to sadness or indifference. Don’t go there.

Shades of green; what’s your fave?

We asked a few folks and got their take on the color’s many nuances.

Contented paint color “The subtle green undertones of Contented is an unexpected neutral that creates a soft, soothing, inviting space.”

— Kate Nisbet of Kate Nisbet Designs



“Lou Lou, one-step chalk-based paint by Amy Howard at Home is a wonderful mossy green that will beautifully compliment any fall décor.”

— Laurie Ledbetter, owner of Affordable Chic Lou Lou paint color



This vibrant green of Fiddlehead Fern is perfect
for an accent wall, outdoor space or small project. Bright and spunky, it’s perfect for
a children’s bedroom or playroom.
