The One Shade Of Green You Should Avoid Painting In Your Home
Olive is one of the best green paint shades, as the green shade exudes earthy, sophisticated vibes. While neon green hues can appear too youthful and overpowering, olive green will provide a more elegant look. “I’ve always been a proponent of olive green and find that it adds warmth and depth to almost any space,” Cathie Hong of Cathie Hong Interiors told Architectural Digest. So, instead of taking inspiration from bright limes for your home, consider looking to savory green olives.
TikToker @goldenhourabode posted a video demonstrating how beautiful olive green walls can warm up any room — including kitchens — making them appear classier. While the kitchen from the video initially had dull neutral walls, the TikToker upgraded them with olive green, which made the kitchen look significantly more chic and attractive, pairing beautifully with the cabinets’ creamy hue. Impressed viewers commented on how much they love the transformation, writing, “I didn’t like the cabinets at first and then when you painted the green I loved them. Suits your kitchen well,” “Omg yes,” and “so slayy.”
