6 Unique Color Combinations for Earthy Greens
Lately I can't seem to get enough of earthy green colors. From my closet to my home decor....I want it everywhere! Which is why it's today's Color Crush. As I started playing around with earthy green color pairings it was hard to stop because there are so many ways to use this versatile and timeless hue.
I've used Benjamin Moore paint swatches as a starting point but I also encourage you to think beyond painted walls. Experiment with these color palettes using fabrics, furniture, and accessories.
All paint colors in this post are paired with Courtyard Green (546) by Benjamin Moore.
Pairing 1 - Energetic Blues
Benjamin Moore Paddington Blue (791)
An intense blue adds a lively punch to an earthy green. This particular blue reminds me of the semi-precious stone, Lapis Lazuli, another gorgeous color found in nature.
Pairing 2 - Yellow Greens
Benjamin Moore Springhill Green (412)
An earthy green paired with a yellow green is reminiscent of the tone on tone color palette found in foliage. Pantone named Greenery, a yellow green, the 2017 Color of the Year. Popular home decor products using this combination include palm tree and tropical prints on wallpaper and fabrics.
Pairing 3 - Blush Pinks
Benjamin Moore Heirloom (023)
Blush pink or "millennial pink" continues to be a popular color and it pairs perfectly with earthy greens. If you love blush pink as much as I do, check out a previous Color Crush post to see more color palettes using blush pink.
Pairing 4 - Red Based Oranges
Benjamin Moore Tomato Tango (CSP - 1145)
Red based oranges add a zesty twist to earthy greens. This is an easy way to add an unexpected pop of color to a room. If this red-orange feels too energetic, an alternative pairing is a burnt orange with more of a brown base.
Pairing 5 - Earthy Neutrals
Benjamin Moore Smokey Taupe (983)
Grays continue to be the neutral of choice. Try a warm gray to balance out and enhance an earthy green.
Pairing 6 - Sunny Yellows
Benjamin Moore Dalila (319)
A sunny yellow paired with a earthy green feels like a daily dose of summer indoors. Sunshine year-round, what more could you want?
