Is there a warm green paint?
While you might typically consider greens to be cool tones, they actually are very often warm toned. It all depends on their make up! Think of it this way: green is a secondary color made of primary colors blue + yellow. More blue = cool tones, more yellow = warm tones.
What are warm green colors?
Warm toned greens are going to have more of a yellow, gold, or beige feeling to them and less blue!

The best warm green paint colors
Here are my favorite warm green paint colors!
Light warm green paint colors
Behr Laurel Tree
This is a sage green thats just slightly bright, but has gray undertones so it’s not neon at all.
Benjamin Moore High Park
This is a medium-dark sage green color. It’s a super on trend shade!
Sherwin Williams Coastal Plain
This is a lighter, bright, beachy green color. It almost reminds me of sea glass!
Sherwin Williams Retreat
This is a dusty olive green color, with a lot of gray to it so it doesn’t at all feel overwhelming.
Sherwin Williams Svelte Sage
This paint color has a lot of yellow and brown it it. It almost looks khaki next to all of these other greens! However, put it with neutrals whites and wood tones and it will look more green.
A great option for a more neutral, beige sage!
Behr Bitter Sage
This is another great green. It reads as a lightened up olive green, with warm yellow and tan undertones.
Benjamin Moore Saybrook Sage
This shade of sage green has a lot of yellow to it. That gives it great warm, cozy undertones. I’d only use this one if your flooring or tile also has warm tones to it.
Farrow and Ball Lichen
This is a beautiful, lush green color. It has a bit more color to it compared to some of the more subdued options. It also has a lot of yellow and golden undertones.
Dark warm green paint colors
Behr North Woods
This is a deep green color with muted undertones, so it doesn’t look too green but almost black on the wall, especially at night.
Sherwin Williams Shade Grown
This beautiful deep green color has a vintage feel and pairs really nicely with metallic tones and light neutrals.
Benjamin Moore Waller Green
I love that this green is very dark but not overwhelmingly green. It almost looks charcoal in certain lighting. It’s a great dark green wall color that can almost look neutral in the right lighting!
Fusion Mineral Bayberry
This paint is meant for furniture but isn’t it stunning. This is a really true olive green if you are looking for the perfect shade!
Sherwin Williams Rock Garden
This is a deep emerald. In a bright room, it will feel energized and not dark and dreary.
Benjamin Moore Dakota Shadow
This is really a gorgeous olive green paint color! It has a really earthy, boho feel to it!
Benjamin Moore backwoods
This is a deep but bright olive green color, great for a look that is dramatic but doesn’t at all read black.
Behr Black Bamboo
If you like an olive green, this is a great option. It’s dark but not too dark, the green tones really shine through.
Sherwin Williams Pewter Green
This is the perfect earthy sage green paint color. It is gorgeous on the exterior of a home in an earthy, wooded lot!
