Hunter Green Carpet has to stay...
April 1, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Prior to us meeting, my husband decorated the master bedroom by painting the walls hunter green to match the carpet. While the bedroom is quite large with a doorwall and two windows (with wood blinds), it feels dark, drab, and very "man." Unfortunately the carpet has to stay for the time being while we work on bigger projects...I need ideas for paint color/decor to work with the green carpet. please help!!

Similar to posting above....consider a monochromatic scheme -your starting point is the hunter green. Then use the whites and greys to lighten up the scheme. You introduce additional greens, but there are balanced out by the lighter colours.

you might tone down the green by adding chartreusse and turquoise.both are strong tones . use glass,silver,mercury glass.

avoid brown wood. the green already reminds me of a golf course. adding stained wood is like growing the trees. tan would be like sand traps.

hunter green was very popular yrs ago in traditional homes. they used horse racing or fox hunting prints. lots of burgundy and cream. brass accessories. so i'd stay away from those colors too.
