Yay or Nay: 12 Moody Green Interiors

By Casey Harper • Updated on 02/15/2024

What do you think of moody green interiors? Are you yay or nay?!

I frequently flip through my saved photos on Instagram (anyone else forget what they save?) and recently the same color has been popping up over and over again.

Anyone else noticing this moody green EVERYWHERE lately?!

What do you think of this color trend in interiors lately? Are you yay or nay on this one?

Honestly, I’m a little surprised by how much I like this color trend myself, since I’m not typically into such dark spaces. But the drama it brings to a space is intriguing to me.

It feels sophisticated and cool and in some spaces, almost feels like a neutral which is so interesting.

Are you YAY or NAY on moody green interiors?

Before you decide, scroll through these 12 beautiful interiors that all use moody shades of green to create a tranquil space. And then decide! First up…

1. (feature image above) The different green tones with this light wood makes this kitchen designed by Plain English so dreamy. That herringbone is so good too.

2. This moody bedroom photographed by Stillstars almost has me wanting to paint my bedroom dark green.

Can you imagine waking up in this cozy space? Also, the rich color of that leather headboard adds so much visual interest and warmth to the space.

3. This space, photographed by Line Klein blends bright and light with dark and moody so well. All that light and those natural accessories really make this space feel open and airy.

Proof that you can paint a room dark and it can still feel big and open.

4. Can you imagine making a meal in this kitchen designed by Kelsey Leigh Design Co?

The brass hardware and accents looks so good on this green color. And don’t get me started on that marble backsplash/shelf combo. Talk about a dream kitchen.

A moody green (almost forest green meets teal) color bedroom with white bedding.

5. A big yes from me for The New ‘throwing’ that mustard into the mix. (Get it? Throw pillows/blanket? No?) This room they styled is so pretty.

I also love the idea of throwing a lot of light pieces in a dark space like this jute rug and rattan table.

Not to mention, pairing a bright white comforter with such a dark and moody color is such a good choice.

6. Pella Hedeby knocked it out of the park in designing this space.

The partially painted walls really bring you eye up and add a lot of visual interest to this otherwise linear monochromatic space.

7. Another green kitchen with brass hardware. This neutral color pallet from Chris Loves Julia feels like cooking in a forest.

All those colors really bring the outside in and I’m so into it.

8. This styled shoot for Klip Klap is so good. I love the green walls paired with a bright white floor.

9. I love the pops of rusty red in this space.

I think I’d normally be afraid to pair red tones with red for fear of it reading too Christmas holiday, Studio Salaris does it so well in this styled editorial shoot.

10. First off, this deep emerald green color in this space designed by Sisalla Interior Design is so dreamy and dramatic.

Secondly, can I get all of those ceramics in this space? Oh, and that light fixture too. I love it all!

11. Another space with green walls and white floors. This offers a great option for those not ready to take the whole plunge into the green wall trend.

The green statement wall in this space for Billie Blanket is incredibly impactful.

12. You all know I love a good peg rail, but that dreamy blush with these green walls has me with heart eyes.

Design: Kristina Stark hit the nail on the head with this space, and all I want to do is crawl up in that bed and get a full nights sleep!

See what I mean? These green walls are so rich but also really calming. I think the green interior trend is something I can get on board with.

What do you think? Would you trade in your white walls for a splash of green? Are you more into the darker shades or are you more into the muted green? I’m curious to hear what you think!

I say go all in if you are doing a bedroom or bathroom or den. Ceiling, trim, door—that’s what makes it moody. Our den is moody like this and it is stunning.
White ceilings or just an accent wall don’t work imo and just make the green too stark.
For the kitchen, the Plain English one is stunning, but working in the dark space may be a challenge. The one with light countertops counteracts the darkness (my own kitchen has dark cabinets with soapstone counters but a white backsplash to the ceiling behind the range).
Anyway, just my opinion, but if going for moody you gotta be all in! Unless it’s a kitchen, then 80% “in” works. 😉


What is the color in #3 kitchen cabinets?


I love the green. Do you have any actual paint recommendations? I would like to paint our front hall a green shade to separate it from the rest of the living room.

Painted walls in dark shades have become a great backdrop for design experiments. Original ideas for organizing space.


Definitely a Yay! I love green interiors and are thinking about doing my room that way, such great inspiration from this article. Paper and Stich I LOVE what you do, keep it up 🙂
Have a nice day,
Georgia 🙂


LOVE can you tells what wall colors are used in #3 and #10?


Yah all the way for moody greens. Had my sons room in a deep green. Absolutely loved it but updated to the grey trend.. blah! My master bathroom has the hunter green tiles and was getting ready to change out to be on trend with gray and whites, I am so happy I held off… we are back in trend! Lol!


It’s a yea for me. Now I know what color I’m painting my bedroom!


I would certainly give this a try. The berber-type carpets in all 3 bedrooms of my house are a deep moody gray-green. I didn’t choose it, they’re a leftover from the previous owner but I’ve found it an incredibly easy neutral to decorate with. I might pull out my hair trying to match the paint but I’d love to try wrapping that color around the room.


I love it in a guest bathroom or powder room! Those rooms can take a bit of moodiness and not overwhelm the rest of the house.

My option is…. Moody Green is a great color

I completely agree it takes the right space and house settings to compliment this color, but I do like the bold attempt.

Love it! But I think you need the right space for it. It’s not for every house/space and I think the mix with other products also need to be okay. It can be very cold, but mixed right the vibe will be awesome!


Love it!!!!


That’s a nay for me, even if all these photos are gorgeous. I’ll stick to my white walls and the light they bring. Colors play a big role in our moods, and I would be scared of slowly falling into depression with these dark shades. I’ll keep the different shades of green for the garden.
