Lately, we've been seeing a shift away from white and back towards darker, richer colors for interiors — and no color suits the mood quite so well as hunter green. While you might associate this shade with some of the more egregious design trends of the 80s, when divorced from giant chintzy florals and duck decoys it's actually quite nice — cool, dark, and refreshing.

Light floors and white furniture (and lots of light) keep this living room from Trendland from feeling too oppressive. We love the drama of the black, white and green color scheme.

If painting an entire room (or even an entire wall) in a dark green seems like a bit much, why not paint just the front door? From My Domaine.
