This summer, we’re catching serious island vibes with the color of the moment, a palm tree green that comes in various shades ranging from a dark emerald to a faded jade. The bold shade is perfect for eye-catching accents or striking centerpieces, with a natural energy. Palm Tree Green is great for dressing up your home in a tropical atmosphere that’s almost as enjoyable as the real thing.

I love the richness of this deep green. It would look striking against white trim and other white accents in a sunroom….think lacquered white bamboo chairs and other white garden accents. It would make a fabulous front door color against Crisp Linen SW 6378 on the exterior siding.

I love SW Talipot Palm SW6726. Dorothy Draper dressed the walls of many amazing rooms in Palm Greens. I love the fact that tropical colors can bring the outside into your home. Palm Green is often used to define the architecture of a room. Used in fabrics, draperies and accessories, it always adds glamour and vibrancy to any space.

Amy Howard’s One Step Chalk Paint in “Easy Street” is a shade of green that looks as though it were plucked right from the garden! It’s a pretty spring green that’s deep enough to carry you through every season. For your spray painting needs, try Amy Howard’s lacquer spray in Easton Green.

My favorite shade of Palm Tree Green is Rosemary by Sherwin Williams SW6187. This is my favorite green go-to paint for cabinets and built-ins. It’s a very classic color that works well with anything. This green in my eyes is magic!
