Lately, we’ve showed you a lot green, eco-friendly designs, but I think it’s time we give the color green a little love. Green is often used to create a calming environment, but it can also infuse a space with natural energy, depending on the shade.

Dig in to some of my favorite green rooms on HGTV.

    We have a ceiling to floor fireplace that is painted
    white we want to paint it, do we have to use special
    paint? It is wood burning and we do use it in the winter.

    The wall next to it is Sage Green on one side and Celery green on the other, we wanted to do a sand beige??

    Thanks for your input.

    i am also loo king for a warm soothing color for my master bedroom and bath. i like the spa looks but i think i want something different. i have golden hardwood floors and beige tile in my bath. i get much natural lighting in the bath but not too much in the bedroom. i have dark brown furniture in my bedroom that has specks of gold around the trim with a tall headboard ( about 2 feet from the 8 ft. ceiling) i really don't like my bed any more but i have to live with it a little longer. i am open to all suggestions. thanks

  7. I have a very small bathroom with the old avocado green fixtures. The master bath is attached to this room. I have oak wood flooring with a cherry bedroom suite, cherry louver doors on the closets, cherry wood blinds and cherry trim throughout. Can you suggest any color combos for bath and bedroom to make the compliment one another. If I need to, I will paint all the trim, louver doors and blinds. Please give me any help you can for the avocado green has me stumped. Thanks, Lillian
