    I featured this same space (different photo) in a recent Ideabook about the color green. My best guess is Picnic 6731 by Sherwin Williams. Also, take a look at Early Spring Green 2032-50 by Benjamin Moore.

    Thank you! I'll look at all three options!

    It is a real leaf from the LA Flower market

    Down here, in the south, we have something comparable called an 'elephant ear'.

    This room is WOW! Love the boldness of the large banana leaf and the quietness of the Buhdda head. Do you know the source for the head?

    I saw you posted this a while ago and hadn't received a response. Thought you may try Sherwin Williams' Vegan, SW6738.

    I think the fabric on pillows is by Manuel Canovas.

        This scintillating early-spring green (Picnic 6731 by Sherwin-Williams) brings the entire room to life …

        Isn't it truly amazing what a difference one huge leaf can make? The single giant strelitzia leaf in this Los Angeles home adds a fairy tale touch to a soothing green space.

        Keep your eyes entertained. Here's another instance where the accessories pick up the dominant accent color in the room and give your eye someplace to travel. The glass compotes on the coffee table make even ordinary objects look special.

        A single palm frond or tropical leaf is modern and sculptural and also all things spring: fresh, green, dewy.

        This space takes the same tactic in an entirely different direction: Jars of green and yellow candies on the coffee table enhance the palette and add a lighthearted touch.

        Use indoor house plants in a creative fashion. I have no idea if this enormous leaf is real or faux, but it certainly creates a commanding statement that goes beyond your everyday houseplant. Tip: Looking for an inexpensive way to incorporate more of a color trend into your home? Fill affordable glass jars from Michaels or T.J.Maxx with colorful candy — like on this coffee table. Who knew your sweet tooth could benefit your design sense?

        If you would like to include a blue-toned mint green and a bright greenish yellow, bridge the two with a neutral green. In this example, a focus grabbing statement leaf in deep kelly green is the perfect medium between the wall color in the background and green accessories in the foreground. Also notice how the green and yellow combination is emphasized again in the gladiolus.

        4. Green (avocado, kelly, grass, etc.) is a secondary color with harmonious emotional content. Green draws life from yellow, while blue lends a calming effect. One of the only unanimous forms of beauty is nature; green is the predominant color in nature — commonly regarded as the ideal color, carrying the positive charisma of all hues.

        Here green is used in nearly a shocking fashion. Mint green walls, chartreuse pillows and a throw mixed with vibrant Kelly green foliage adds up to a dramatic space.

        Here's a lead glass transom used pretty much only for ornamention; however, it's large enough and wide enough to add more light into the space.

        Why not put out lemon and lime candy on the coffee table to match the rest of the citrus furnishings?
