If you look at this year’s paint color trends, almost all major paint manufacturers chose various, muted greens for their annual star shade or as one of a trending set. As the color of the natural world, green has a studied ability to reduce people’s heart rates. Compare this year’s green scenes, alongside descriptions from their creators.

Valspar – Blanched Thyme (one of 12 colors of the year) 

“A cool, organic green that works beautifully with warmer wood tones for a natural and balanced look.”



Sherwin-Williams – Evergreen Fog SW 9130

“Get a fresh start with a restorative shade that breathes freshness into modern interiors.”


Benjamin Moore – October Mist 1495

“This gently shaded sage quietly anchors a space, while encouraging individual expression through color.”


Glidden – Guacamole PPG 1121-5

“This spirited yet soothing green brings an organic energy to any space, which is needed because we all know you’ve probably killed at least three plants this year.”


Farrow & Ball – Breakfast Room Green (one of five colors of the year)

“Named after the usually east facing rooms designed for eating the first meal of the day, it is particularly beautiful in the dawn light.”
