We once purchased wall-to-wall green carpet for a living room because the salesperson told us that green was a "neutral" color. I'm not completely convinced that's true--I think of neutrals as whites and browns. Anyhow, the carpet looked absolutely wonderful with tan walls, white woodwork, and dark brown furniture in our well-lighted living room/dining room combination. Though it was a light shade of basic green, we never had any trouble keeping it clean and beautiful. I probably would not install wall-to-wall carpet in a living room now, but I still love, love, love green in almost all shades.

I like the one kitchen with the soft green, but I wouldn't want the whole kitchen in it.
