Looking for a light and bright green paint color? I am obsessed with Behr Riverdale! Here’s the undertones, coordinating colors, and trim colors!
Green paint colors are really on trend. But, green can be intimidating to use.
Here are my favorite green paint colors!
A light green paint color with gray undertones is the easiest way to use green paint. Gray undertones keep colors looking a bit more muted and neutral.
Behr Riverdale N410-3
This is a green color. It is sometimes labeled as a gray – but I really think it is a green and not a gray.
Light Reflectance Value
LRV: 55 – on the lighter side of things
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.
R: 190 G: 197 B: 186
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!
This color is green with a lot of gray undertones. That gives it a muted look. I see it described as a gray with green undertones sometimes, but it is DEFINITELY green in person.
We used this color for our bathroom – it gives an instant spa-like feel. It also makes for a great light, bright guest bedroom, living room, or kitchen.
- Behr Engagement Silver
- Behr Rhino
- Benjamin Moore Gray Whisp
- Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray
- Valspar Irish Moor
I like to pair this color with light shades – like a white, light gray, or tan. This is best for a spa-like look. For a more modern, high contrast look, pair it with navy blue, charcoal gray, or black.
I prefer to pair this color with a crisp white paint color for trim.
Bright white trim colors:
- Benjamin Moore Simply White
- Sherwin Williams Extra White
- Behr Ultra Pure White
