…..enough to get the sense of what colors have not been around for a while and are due for a reappearance…But even BEFORE I saw that DARK MOSS was all over the runway at the FALL 2016 Fashion Week…I predicted it would be making a comeback…or should I say rather…be
“ON TREND” .
THESE DARK GREENS ARE WARMER THAN THE “PINES” AND THE “EVERGREENS” WHICH HAVE MORE BLUE UNDERTONES…
I LOVE THESE DEEP GREENS. HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF IT’S POWER AND APPEAL – THE SWATCHES DO NOT NECESSARILY CORRESPOND WITH THE ROOMS…BUT I LOVE HOW THE GREEN FEELS SO ALIVE!
THESE GREENS PLAY VERY NICELY WITH MY FAVORITE COLOR THIS SEASON – BLUSH…MAKES ME ALMOST WANT TO PAINT A WALL DEEP GREEN! ADDA BUSH SOFA AND BAM!
THIS DEEP MOSSY GREEN IS A COLOR I THINK WE HAVE NOT EVEN BEGUN TO SEE ENOUGH OF…I THINK IT WILL BE AROUND FOR A WHILE…IT COMPLEMENTS SO MANY OTHER COLORS AND CAN SERVE AS AN ALMOST NEUTRAL BACKDROP WHICH PUT WITH THE RIGHT COMBINATIONS.IT IS A COLOR THAT I AM NOT SURE WOULD WORK IN MY HOME BUT I MIGHT HAVE TO GIVE IT A TRY ON AN ACCENT WALL…IT IS JUST PAINT RIGHT!

I love the color of that Anthropologie sofa. But we bought a hunter green leather sectional in the early 1990s and used it until the leather was splitting, and I don’t think I’m ready to go there again. We also had the ivy wallpaper in our kitchen during the 1990s too and I haven’t recovered yet.
trust me, we ONLY got rid of our Avocado oven 3 years ago…but I do like the deepl dark ones!
As a fan of all colors that are evocative of nature, this deep mossy green is bang on for me. So many ways to use it, too; love your suggestion to add drapes (or other large accent item, like a rug) if painting seems daunting. My front entry hall, stairs, and upper hallway are currently Ben Moore’s “timothy straw”, a lighter iteration of this mossy color.
I do have to laugh at the “avocado” green; anyone who lived through the sixties saw this color in appliances, and we are praying that trend doesn’t reappear!
I love Timothy straw! I bet it is gorgeous!
Keep up the good works guys I’ve you guys to my own blogroll.
Just ran across this when I googled “mossy green paint” and looked at images. I immediately picked out your nine Dark Moss Green dots. Wow! So glad I did! I’m a “color person” and have been trying to think of what color to use on the front of my house. Yesterday, it finally came to me…a medium to dark mossy green!
The facade of my ’50’s ranch is mostly a yellowish sandstone with recessed porch that is wood panel over sandstone and a wood double garage door flanked by sandstone, too. When I moved in all of the wood was painted a darkish cocoa color with the original ’50’s front door painted black and black (fake) shutters. I “specialize” in front door colors, so after removing shutters, I painted the door a Sherwin-Williams color called Sapphire, I think, but comes across as sort of a dark periwinkle. Nice combination but the brown is badly faded so time for a change.
I’m so happy to look at all of the photos you included, esp the blush and green combinations. Also a favorite of mine. I can hardly wait to dig deeper. Thank you. (No wonder why I can’t get anything done!)
I love the idea of a mossy green front door! Especially on a mid century era home!!!send pics!!!
Do you know what brand and color that mossy green front door is??? Love…
Try Benjamin Moore Great Barrington Green
Do you have any idea what color paint is in the first picture? The one by Luke Edward Hall? It is divine!
