How do I choose the right shade of olive green paint?
As you already know, olive green is quite popular for interior design right now, so we’re not surprised you chose this one to freshen up your walls.
It’s interesting how this shade is both calming yet bold, perfect for an all-over wall shade or to introduce subtle pop of color.
But when it comes to choosing the right olive green paint color, things start to get tricky.
Namely, there is a vast array of different shades that only vary slightly from one another.
So, the best way to approach this task is to look at the overall picture, i.e., the details of your home.
Consider your furniture, decor, carpets, and other important elements you won’t remove after you paint your walls.
Also, look for inspiration online by searching for olive green home aesthetics to understand which hues will best match your layout.
Try to determine at least whether you’d opt for lighter or darker shades, as this will help you choose an exact tint much easier.
