Olive green certainly isn't the easiest color to decorate with even though it's considered a neutral. However, no matter how tricky it can be there's no denying how fantastic it looks when done right. It's funny that olive green can be difficult to work with because it can actually be used in almost any style. It's a great color for an eclectic look because you can pair it with several different colors in one room.
A much easier approach is to use it as the main colorful focal point. Olive green makes a great sofa color or even splashed up on the wall with gold accents. Olive is such a chic and expensive looking color and when done right it speaks volumes.
