Craving a dose of dark green in your home? By all means, go ahead and introduce the hue to your space! "Dark green is a natural and inviting color, reminiscent of flora and foliage," designer Mary Lambrakos, of Lambrakos Studio, says. Lambrakos, who believes incorporating green into a room's theme invites the beauty of nature inside, incorporated a dark velvet green sectional and rug into the space shown above.

While dark green certainly makes a stunning statement in any room, you'll of course want to work other colors into the mix to complete your design scheme. Not sure which other hues to use? Read on to take a peek at 10 shades that look gorgeous with dark green.

    "We love to pair green with neutrals like brown and grey for an earthy look," Lindye Galloway, who designed the space shown above, says. "Both colors are easy on the eyes and evoke a feeling of calm. Green can also contrast nicely with white for a bright, clean look."

    This room features an abundance of dark green, but black and white pillows help to complete the space and add dimension. Don't worry about using black alongside dark green as long as you keep the color to a minimum so that your space doesn't become too cave-like.

However, even the most simple bedrooms can benefit from a tiny pop of color—and the headboard is the perfect place to go bold. How stunning is this plush hunter-green piece?
