Looking for the perfect dark green paint color? Let’s talk about Behr Dark Everglade and if it might be right for your home!
Green paint is really trending right now and I personally have a soft spot for dark green.
Dark green makes for a dramatic bedroom, bathroom, dining room, or cabinet color.
We recently painted our guest bedroom Behr Dark Everglade and I love it so much I had to share the color with you here today!
Behr Dark Everglade
Dark Everglade is a deep blue-green paint color that is perfect for a dramatic green wall. In cool lighting, it reads a bit teal. In warm lighting, it is more emerald.
Dark Everglade is in the green color family.
Light Reflectance Value
Light Reflective Value is the measurement of how much light a color bounces around. This is on a scale of 0 to 100 with 0 being pure black and 100 being pure white.
With an LRV of 8, Dark Everglade is a super dark color! Shades of black usually have an LRV of 6 or lower, with 1 being pure black. So, this is a very dark color!
R: 62 G: 85 B: 79
RGB describes the amount of each color – red, green, and blue – present in a color. This is on a scale of 0 to 255 for each color. This is basically the color mix to make the color!
Dark Everglade is a deep green color with a LOT of blue to it. In natural or cool lighting (such as a north facing room) it reads as almost a deep teal.
In warm or artificial lighting (or south facing rooms) it will read as more emerald green.)
It’s very important to swatch colors on your wall to be sure they look good – day and night – in your actual space before committing.
I love using deep colors such as this one for:
- large, bright bedrooms
- small powder room (consider painting the ceiling, too!)
- front door
- trim when paired with white walls
- Behr Black Evergreen
- Behr Rainforest
- Benjamin Moore Hidden Falls
- Sherwin Williams Billiard Green
- Valspar Peacock House
I’d pair this color with light cool gray, lighter gray-greens, and gold accessories.
- Behr White Metal
- Behr Hush
- Behr Sterling
- Behr Nature’s Gift
- Behr Summer Green
- Behr Green Tea
Because of the blue tones in this shade, I prefer to pair it with a clear, clean white for trim.
- Benjamin Moore Simply White
- Sherwin Williams Extra White
- Behr Ultra Pure White
