I Don’t use much green as the main colors in my home, now, but I did in our first home. And Guilford Green reminds me of a SLIGHTLY LIGHTER VERSION of a color I LOVED and used in our first home…a Laura Ashley color called HEATH GREEN. Maybe that is why it feels a bit 90’s to me. Still as a challenge I like to find a way to make any color work…

WHAT I DO LIKE ABOUT GUILFORD GREEN IS IT’S VERSATILITY.

At first and maybe even second glance…it can read a bit drab…even sad to me. However, there has been so much gray and greige and beige… that it could be refreshing to have a quasi-neutral that has woodsy green color to it…a color that can be an ensemble player and not upstage the other colors…in fact I think it NEEDS colorful friends around…which keep it from being to blah…

HERE ARE SOME COMBINATIONS I LIKE…EACH CREATES ITS OWN UNIQUE LOOK. I SAY…TAKE IT AND RUN WITH IT….

  1. I have to agree…don’t hate it..but not swooning…Hate is such a strong word…especially for a color….but if I moved into a house that was painted this color…I might be inclined to change it…

    now…I might actually have to use the “H” word when talking about the Pantone color!
