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!

Common warm green colors include:

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

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

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

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

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!
