23 Captivating Green Accent Wall Ideas

Dark Green Accent Wall in a Bedroom

A green accent wall is a perfect way to add a pop of color to your space without breaking the budget. While green may not initially come to mind for an accent wall, the various shades of green let you find the right color for your style.

An accent wall is when you paint a single wall a different color from the rest of the room, creating a focal point in your design. You can also add wood trim or paneling to your wall for texture.

Whether you’re looking to create a moody dark green accent wall bedroom or a modern sage green accent wall in your dining room, the possibilities are endless. We’d recommend using darker shades of green (like forest green or hunter green) to create a more sophisticated look, while lighter shades (like sage or olive green) typically evoke an eclectic and youthful style.

Forest green is one of our favorite colors for a bedroom accent wall since it evokes cozy vibes. However, this bedroom’s forest green accent wall takes the idea to the next level using vertical shiplap planks to create a subtle detail. Shiplap or tongue and groove planks are installed with a small slot between each piece to create dimension. We also love how easy shiplap wood is to install and can be painted to fit in with any accent wall.
