Deep Dark Green is such an elegant, lush color – whether it’s Forest, Hunter, or Emerald Green – with so much depth and interest and such a beautiful reflection of nature. It’s a wonderful way to make your house feel like its environment without blending in too much.
And it’s a color that not only works great on so many home styles but it can be so chic when used on trim and accents, too.
So today, I’ve got so many inspirations and lots of tips and tricks for adding this dramatic and velvety color to your home.

Dark Green Exterior Ideas
Often, this Deep Dark Green color is used on cabins or rural buildings because it’s the closest color to its surroundings. But I think it’s also a stand-out color on suburban homes too. It’s a much more interesting play on the black or super dark siding trend; these greens connect your home to its nature and give it a timeless feeling.
It really makes siding textures pop and looks great glossy or more matte. I also adore the way glossy green trim looks on warm white houses or paired with wood accents to double up on the natural feeling. It’s also great with soft, silvery greys (think driftwood!).
It’s a really versatile shade!
Dark Green Outdoor Lighting, Decor & Furniture
Try searching for “forest,” “malachite,” ‘evergreen, “hunter,” “cedar green,” “juniper,” “alpine,” “ivy,” and “dark green” when you’re looking for this color. And these colors have more of a cool blue undertone instead of the warm yellow undertones you see in Olive or Moss, so you’ll usually want to avoid those options when searching.
Deep Dark Green is a super versatile color that looks great not only with other shades of green (NATURE!) but also with both warm and cool neutrals in light or dark tones and other bright pops of color like orange and blue.
You really can’t go wrong here!

Dark Green Exterior Paint Colors
There are truly an endless amount of gorgeous dark green paint colors out there, with everything from blue to yellow undertones, tones from neutral to saturated, and everything in between.
But for this, we’re looking at blue undertone green and not as saturated or yellow undertone as something like a moss green.
The colors below are true, deep, dark greens and work as great on full siding as they do on entry doors and other accents, like shutters.
You’ll know the color is right when you’re asking: is that green, or grey, or black, or what? Then you know you’ve got just the right depth and just the right true deep dark green.
