Each variation of the color green can create a different look.  When going for a bright apple or lime green, this can be paired with fuchsia, yellow and orange for a truly lively space perfect for the modern home.  For a light and airy color theme, combine a bright green with turquoise.

A softer mint green combines well with pink and creamy yellow for a cheerful and bright room reminiscent of a spring garden.  Complement floral patterns with stripes and plaids for a cottage feel.

For a more subtle and earthy green, sage or olive in various shades can be combined with brown, plum or terra cotta to create a very warm room that beckons you to linger.  When accented with animal prints and dark woods, this green room is stylish and comfortable.

Deep emerald green is rich and can heighten the style of a room.  Paint the walls with a high gloss emerald green to turn the room into a jewel box of color.  Paint the trim in white and use accents in gold and black for drama.

Green can be incorporated into a neutral color scheme just as easily.  Simply accent the room with a green area rug, pillows, soft throws and decorative accessories.
