Your Signature Color :: Army Green
Your Signature Color is Army Green or Moss Green, a gorgeous shade of green that pairs well with turquoise, pink, brown and gray.
To highlight olive green’s energy, pair with complimentary hues of red and yellow. For a more natural look, pair it with neutrals such as white, black and beige. Incorporate olive green plants into any room for a touch of nature, which helps alleviates anxiety.
Camo looks great paired with black, white, and other neutrals, but it also works with bold neons and even soft pastels. Adding a little color helps soften the look and makes it feel a little more fun.
Plum is a good color choice to pair with olive green since both are a few shades away from their parents, purple and green. Beige and tan provide earthy tones that compliment olive green for a natural look. Red adds energy to a design that olive green lacks, so together, they offer a nice balance.
Grey and green
Grey is the perfect neutral when combined with a splash of colour, it can really bring a room to life – especially a vibrant green. Associated with nature this revitalising shade can perk up all shades of grey, from soft almost lilac tones to more brooding charcoal tones.
WHAT TO WEAR WITH ARMY GREEN. Don’t be afraid to pair army green with bright colors, like cool turquoise, bright pink. We also love army green when worn with orange, so long as the shade isn’t too close to a traffic cone: think, an army green canvas coat over a pale orange cotton button; that’s definitely worth a try.
It will provide a medium contrast, which is what is required. Army green is in the same colour family as olive, so to prevent ‘low contrast’ and looking washed out, I wouldn’t recommend it for those with olive skin.
We often talk about colors like beige, brown, and taupe, but today we’re proving that it’s olive green which mixes so well with everything you already own. For a subdued feel, treat the color as you would any other neutral.
Green With Gray
You might be surprised about the third color which is gray, another traditional business color that works really well with green. A beautiful green and gray grenadine tie create a very harmonious look that provides enough contrast no matter if you wear a brown jacket or a blue one or even a gray one.
And while this rugged color has never been considered neutral in the past, designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Proenza Schouler proved that the shade can absolutely be worn with just about every color in the spectrum.
True Olive Drab (as opposed to dark green) is a mixture of yellow and black, so yellow is the last color to use for highlighting. Using the “opposite side of the color wheel” method give you purple, although I think a bright red would work, too.
Both are earthy colors that go great together, plus they’re both perfect fall colors. Pair olive green pants with burnt orange top or a burnt orange dress with an olive jacket for a look that’s both stylish and unique.
Color scheme #2 – dark tones with punchy yellow green
living room: Navy, and as an accent color via pillows and the window treatment here, it forms a nice triad with the lighter gray-blue and the olive green.
Olive green is popular in fashion as it is considered flattering to most skin tones. In interior design, a splash of olive green can warm up a room. To highlight the hue, pair it with complementary reds and violets. For a natural look, combine it alongside navy and light grays.
One of the best ways to use green in your home is to combine several shades of green in the room to create a layered look. These different shades of green will work well together, and they will also work well with any colors you want to add to the scheme. Consider the many shades of flowers in nature.
So, what colors make a room look bigger? For an optimum effect, go with soft tones like off-white, blues, and greens, and always remember that brighter rooms feel bigger and more inviting. And here’s another hack: Try painting your wall trim and moldings in a lighter color than your walls.
