Dark Green Inspiration

If you remember, this is where we've last left our color decisions for the office:

Chris wants a dark green for the walls, but I think the greens he's chosen are a little too dark for our small room.

So, I've pulled some images to show him for inspiration:

I'm still debating on whether I'd paint the bookcases white (to go with our white desk), or if I'd paint them the same color as the walls but in a glossier sheen. Also, whether I would keep the slipcover blue or get a new one either in white or beige.

Hmmm..... decisions.

Of course, this is just MY thoughts for the office. Chris has his own "vision", as he's told me. I would like to find a good color that we both love and can be happy with (and that doesn't look black on the walls!)

More to come!

I love that first color with the black frame!!! Although I admit to having a love for more dramatic colors...such fun! Can't wait to see the finished product and see what color you chose.

I'm rooting for you to win - I love the color choices and inspriration you are pulling.

Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

my favorite and my best said...

i do enjoy the idea of the shelves the same color as the walls in the glossier finish. but, good luck getting him to go for it.

ohhh I love the inspiration you've picked! I think first and last photos are my favorite (though they are all fantastic). I love a blue green color. I must admit I'm torn between painting the bookcase white or the same color in a glossier finish...they both sound very different but equally cool. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I like the examples you pulled together here, the lighter green is much better then that hunter green/ maroon combo men are fond of :)

I just found your blog... love it!

The green YOU want is PERFECT!!! I love the idea of the white bookcases with the white desk. Green and white is so crisp and clean!!
