When Does Color Need To Be Quiet?

I love green but feel this one is too much for the walls. See how it distracts from the plants? When choosing wall color, sometimes it’s better to have a quiet color (quiet does not mean light and borning) so the decor doesn’t get lost.

I really love bringing the outdoor colors, especially green, indoors. I also like having plants inside. With this wall color being so bold, it’s the first thing I notice in this picture. Yes it’s a nice color but I’m talking about balance here.

What about this color? Here, this color is still bright enough but it doesn’t distract from the rest of the room. What are your thoughts?

    Hi Donna I would like a shade of green for my kitchen … with cream cupboards. Any suggestions?

  2. I would focus on Valspar colors. In my opinion, they have the BEST greens and I have then in my house. The green I have for my living room looks awful in the paint deck but looks amazing on the wall, it’s Green Tea Leaves. This answer really depends on where you live and what type of lighting and decor you have. Again, check with Valspar first.
