Sure, copper is our official color of the month, but vibrant green is the unofficial color of every March thanks to spring and, oh yeah, a little holiday full of green beer and four-leaf clovers. But this year, it’s also having a moment on it’s own, from spring fashion runway pieces (green shoes!) to home accent pieces to bedding to House Beautiful‘s March cover story. In honor of this fabulous hue (and St. Patrick’s Day), here are 5 rooms that celebrate vibrant green with style.

Designer Tobi Fairley blanketed this room with a neutral backdrop to allow the bold kelly green fabrics and lamps to shine.

Designer Emily Henderson gave this small sunroom a burst of color and pattern with vintage-inspired carpet and ’50s vinyl chairs.

Green and Red Bedroom

Design by Brian Patrick Flynn

Red and green? It can work post-December. Really. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn’s secret: Add dark brown. Depending on which color is selected as dominant, this combination can take on either a masculine or feminine vibe.

Bold, saturated greens can lighten up the darkest of spaces, like this no-window walk-in closet. Vintage white accents juxtapose the super-preppy green-and-brown color scheme.

Linda Woodrum Dream Home Bedroom

Design by Linda Woodrum

The lush green shade on the walls of this bedroom in HGTV Dream Home 2009 is at once bold and relaxing. Designer Linda Woodrum used the same hue for walls and ceiling to create extra height in this luxurious space. Feeling, ahem, green with envy yet?

What do you think: Is there a bright green room in your future?

  6. Tell Emily those chairs are a hit! I am sticking with Retro and Copper is always going on at my place. Green can be fun in March but I love it outdoors always. Looking for some 4 leaf clovers around here. Green is popping up everywhere here!

    That bottom bedroom is seriously almost perfect. I love bold, bright colors. In fact, I just re-did my room, and my accent color was BRIGHT orange. I found alot of cute stuff on Wake Up Frankie's website, along with IKEA and target.
