I'll start with friendly frog by Behr
And here is a grey green color
SW Durations matte chatroom
|EK Ashen Green |
|I haven't figured out how to get my pics to show up inline. I tried but only get the red x. So I'll attach. |
Sorry I don't remember the actual paint color, but it is a Behr paint in some sagey name color. It was 4 years ago and I don't keep a file like I should.
The part above the mantel I mixed in a little BM Navajo White, that much I do know.

|"Nora's Kitchen Green" by Benjamin Moore...custom mixed and "tweaked" from a paint chip named "Tortoiseshell" from Sears. |
|Baby Turtle By Benjamin Moore. This is in low light where it looks darker and more rich. |
And here is a better daylight shot of this in the other end of my Living Room.

Very light-sensitive color so here's another picture looking the opposite way:

Kitchen ceiling is citron sea glass (matches our seaglass subway tile backsplash perfectly). Not sure how well this subtle color is captured by pictures.
|Dill Pickle by BM: |
|I have 2 rooms in my house that are green. Both are Duron paint and unfortunately I only have a formula without the name. (if anyone needs the formula specifics just let me know) |
BEDROOM: soft, sage shade of green
BATHROOM: almost a deep blue-ish green shade
|FR. Can't remember the paint color but pretty sure it's a BM in the sage family (that was 5 years ago!).|

|i love your greens! i have a 'history of green' den. the slipper chair is avacado from the 70's, the rug is olive and rose from the 80's, the couch is hunter from the 90's and i recently redid the walls with sage striped wallpaper and sage toile window toppers. talk about a room 'evolving' |
i see alot of shades of green granite counter tops and tiles. paint can be easely changed when it gets dated, but a counter top is sort of permanent on my budget. i don't think i would do green on a permanent fixture...mom

|BM Cheyanne Green |
|My LR green is AT Willow Wind. It is a very light sensative green can go from clear and pastel to very muddy and sagey. |
|We used Spring Lawn (a Lowe's color) in my daughter room, and it's very bright lime green - perfect for her though. And we used Eddie Bauer Chive, also from Lowe's in our master bedroom.|

|Colleen, your photo of the Spring Lawn blew me away. On my monitor, it looks just like Olympic Lime that we got from Lowes for Son's room. Also, this shot of the room is exactly the same configuration as his room. |

|Wrong picture. It didn't link. But it's the closet & doorway pic in the Lime from your album.|

Clearly, I love green.
|I'm in the process of painting my kitchen Behr's Lion--it was a very dark BM Alligator Green. Lion is a nice, light, airy green that's not too yellow or blue, not too gray or drab, not too light, and not too dark. I might describe it as a pale celery. It's a nice compliment to my white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and hardware, and orange, yellow, and avocado window treatments. (I would post a picture, but I don't know how.)|
|Pratt and Lambert's 'Floradora' |
|What fun to share colors! |
Lettuce by Valspars (American Tradition):
Bayou Shade by Valspars
|Shortgrass Prairie by Behr |
|BM Gray Mirage with Nantucket Gray trim |
|Flowering Herbs by BM. I love this color! It shifts from khaki to green dependant upon the light and from the cooler totally neutral you see here to very warm but never so much as to throw everything else in the room off. |
Dixie - I love that Shortgrass Prarie!
|Laura Ashley Moss 5 (our 4 y.o. son's room) |
Laura Ashley Olive 4 (sorry, bad picture of this color- it really isn't this dark of a green, but when I take a pic of it with the light on it make it look really yellow!)
Benjamin Moore Hampshire Gray
|Restoration Hardware (Can't remember name) |
|Remembered the name.... used two tones, lighter in the eating area, darker in the kitchen. Bay Laurel is the lighter, Spanish Moss the darker. Both matched by Behr.|
|I first did my living room in Behr Mother Nature but didn't like it..it was too green. Then redid it in Behr Spartan Stone and like it much better. It's more of a grey/green color. |

BM Baby Turtle in daylight:
|SW (Martha Stewart) Fen. LOVE it! It's a little deeper in person than in the photo. A very eye-pleasing tone neither too olive/brown or too yellow. Looked darker and more of an army green in the sample "swatch" on the wall. But perfect when the room was complete. |
|SW Sassy Green |

|Thanks for bumping this thread. |
rebazel, do you have pictues of your son's lime green room?
|Benjamin Moore - Dry Sage |
|I like those shots of Georgian Green and also the Bayou Shade. Nice. |
Here's that LIME from my son's room, Olympic paint.
|Oh my... My favorite color... This is a superb thread... |
My countertop in my kitchen is Moss.
|Another BM Olive Branch |
Gosh I LOVE green! Beautiful thread of rooms!
(Spolina that room with a view is spectacular - I would never want to get up and could just sit and read a book there for hours)
|Behr Athenian Green |
|Redbazel, I just noticed your posting of your son's room. Thank you - I love it.|
|BM Brookside Moss |
|Tracie...Oregon, I love your dining room. Its soooo beautiful.|
|Any more Ben Moore "Dill weed" out there, I'm thinking about it in my new house, would love to see your rooms...Thanks, Cindy|
|Bumping up the thread again ;)|
|I was looking for Fen and I found Fenland. Is that the color you used in your dining room. It is SW 7544.|
|Behr's "Tate Olive" |
|BM Misted Green |
|Your Misted Green is gorgeous and so spa-like.|
|I wanted to post this on Taupes & Browns, but I guess I have to play nice. I was looking for a much more neutral color to repaint my dining room, that had been Woodbine, a perky warm pear color from ICI. So I found Ben Moore's Northampton Putty, which looked like a taupe brown with a hint of olive. None of my family saw any real green in it, but now that it's dry.......it does have a brown green feel. I love it with my red persian rug and warm woods. Some walls look more grey and some more green. |
|Do paint colors come in and out every year like fashion clothing? I have a partial can of paint a friend gave me and I think I'd like to use the color in a semigloss sheen on cabinets. It's called Retreat, but I can't find it in Sherwin Williams color chart. |
Oh, and another question: what is the best sheen to use on kitchen cabinets? High gloss or semi-gloss, or satin or eggshell? What's in style now for cabinets, if you're doing 'em in a bright color like green?
|BM Saybrook Sage |
|The paint color is Great Barrington Green from Benjamin Moore's historic collection. |

None of these rooms are finished. Still working on new accessories, window treatments, etc. The kitchen ceiling has been painted since this picture was taken.

|Love the Greens thread. Anyone have some new photos to show? |
|sassyMNmom, what color granite is that? I can't tell by the angle. |
mindstorm, pretty kitchen and pretty sagey color.
boopadaboo, love the bedroom and dark green walls.
brutuses, I'm a huge fan of BM Grecian Green. There are too many pretty posts to comment on them all.
|Another BM Saybrook Sage, which I picked after seeing on this thread! It's a wonderful color, I'm very happy with it and never would have gone with it just based on the color strip (it looks more gray there). |
|I have a question. I am planning on painting my new house with lots of greens and neutral khaki's from Sherwin Williams. If given the choice, would most of you use the same color green on the ceiling or one shade lighter? |
I LOVE green and this thread is great. I want to see more! lol
Brutuses- I really like your two tone example of a lighter shade on the ceiling. Do you think I could do that in a large room with a cathedral ceiling? Or would I be safer doing all one color with a sloped ceilling?
|soonermagic- are your bath cabinets black or a dark stain? love your bathroom! |
we are sooners too!
|I love this green - it is called Cactus Park from CIL. |
Greenery on the archway is a holiday decoration since taken down.
|BM Van Alen Green on walls and ceiling. Room is not nearly finished. Just for paint color. |
|Another BM Saybrook Sage |
|I used this color in my old house and I'm trying to figure out where I want to use it in my new house! |
Behr Olive Sheen
|More and more my home is becoming yellow and green. Never knew I even liked green until I started updating bedrooms and painted two of them green and got some compliments. I do not have the color of the bathroom green but it's close to the Sprig Green by Behr that I used in the bedroom. It just looks a lot richer. I really like it. |
|Hi Peachiepie, |
I like the green color in your bath. Is it sprig green from Behr or is it a custom mix?
I'm looking for a fresh green color for my kitchen.
Your color really caught my eye.

|Here is "Grass" by Serena & Lily (one gallon, low VOC and water-based, matte-finish paint is $45): |
|Glad you bumped this one. I just finished painting our kitchen with Dutch Boy color from Wal-Mart so I believe it is called Color Place Paint. The Dutch Boy color is called Lil' Sprout #702 and the card says Better Homes and Gardens on it. So figure it out I can't. Hehehe |
Close up. Really hard to capture this color.
Doing some abstract mosaic on that trunk top. Hoping I can tie it to my cottage look. I went off my rocker and fell in love with a dark green and gold abstract rug.Just the corner of the rug shows.
|can you please post any picks of guilford green, benjamin moore if you have it? thanks!|
