The Best Green Paint Colors to Transform Any Room

Determining what paint color to paint a particular room is always a top question we receive from clients when we take on a project. One of the colors that is “having a moment” you could say is the color green. 

It’s often no surprise that popular colors align with the current national mood. Green offers a sense of calm as it reflects the color of nature and can feel very grounding. It’s also refreshing and suggests the idea of a “rebirth” as we look ahead to 2022.

Green is so popular that Sherwin Williams just announced their “Color of the Year”, which is as you may have guessed – green! Evergreen Fog to be exact. This is a gray-green color that the company’s in-house Director of Color Sue Wadden says symbolizes “growth, rebirth, and joy.”
