Hey ladies! We are tackling our bedroom right now & we just painted it a VERY light green color. It’s called “Sage Tint” from Behr. I am in love with green but this turned out a lot lighter than we thought, & we have a white dresser & white chest so I’m trying to find a good balance to bring in darker colors but make it feel “fresh” at the same time. I’m going to get dark brown bamboo blinds & get a dark brown mirror, but what color comforter do you think would look good in this color? I don’t like to go too far out of my comfort zone…which is greens, browns, whites, etc. Natural colors.
Here’s an example of the color we painted, I found this on google:

Go to hgtv.com, go to the designer gallery, and click on “green”. Then you can browse a bunch of green rooms.
If you like natural colors, get a natural color comforter. Get ivory. Get beige. Get brown. Any of it will look good. It’s not like you painted the room hot fuscia or teal.

Ejs: Thanks! I do like natural colors, but I wanted to have a comforter that had a little bit more color to it since everything else is so bland, but I will go check out HGTV!!

Our Living Room is a Celery green.
We deocrated with the following pallete: Light green, dark green, ivory, beige, brown & accented w/ dark red. I’m contemplating switching out the red right now for eggplant while it’s popular, then bringing the red back, or combining the two colors in the room with throws and pillows.

My bedroom is currently painted sage and I use the following colors: hunter green, burgundy, red, gold, chocolate brown, bronze for window treatments and bedding. You would think that it would look odd…but the “warm” tones of the bedding actually meshes pretty well with the “cool” tone of the walls.
This is not the best picture…but this is what I have on the bed now. I have 4 different “looks” that I use in my room and I just switch them out when I want to see something different.

Like PPs, I was going to suggest eggplant…rich & a complementary color for green. I’m also a BIG fan of deep olive green with browns & light green. Think: palm tree color scheme – deep browns, warm browns, light green, & deeper green. Additionally, bringing in plants or flowers may liven up the room. Good Luck!

I have a room that’s a light green. Not quite as light as yours, but it’s more of a minty green. I’m trying to “decorate” it with a different color of paint. 😉
I would think just about anything would work with a color that light. You might want to think of a rich color mixed with some muted colors. Something to bring a little bit of color to the room.
