Whether you've moved into a new home with green walls or green is your favorite color and you want to feature it in your favorite room of the house, we're here to share sole design ideas for decor that goes with green walls.

Green is a color that can work in any room. It looks great in rooms with large windows that let a lot of sunlight in because it can be seen as an extension of the outdoors. But due to green's jungle vibes, it also looks great in a bathroom if you want to create your own rainforest retreat.

Green is reminiscent of nature and creates a sense of adventure in any room that it is used in. It is an unexpected color, but one that is becoming more popular in modern design trends because of its versatility. There are so many different shades of green, meaning that there are endless possibilities for decor to pair with it.

If you need inspiration for green wall decor ideas, here are 11 of our favorite designs complete with pictures and suggestions to help you achieve these looks in your own home.

1. Blank Walls and Pops of Color

Since green is such an artistic color, let the walls themselves be the artwork. Keep them blank and add pops of color here and there, like orange or coral, instead. Orange keeps the green walls from overpowering the room. However, since orange is a contrasting color to green, you should only use it only in small doses.

The coral color of this blanket makes a great accent color for green walls. The woven texture and fringe helps create visual interest.
