Color Inspiration: Olive Green

September 14, 2015

By Tab Byrum

Whether it’s Olive Green or Army Green this shade of  the verdant hue has always been one of my favorites, I mean there’s a reason the army uses it, it goes with everything.

Olive green looks great with so many other colors, I especially like the way it looks with black  (see above) and it also looks sharp with tan and camel and even a splash of red and purple too. Olive Green is very big in fashion right now for both the ladies and the gents, camo is EVERYWHERE!!!!  In home decor Olive Green is a great masculine color, it pairs beautifully with stained wood and of course, it looks great with other different shades of green. So, whether it’s in your martini, on your walls or in a jacket you’re wearing join me as we explore design and Olive Green, Enjoy!!!

I love Olive Green for a space such as this, it’s warm without being too dark and overwhelming.

Here we can see Olive Green mixed with other colors such as Lilac, Red, Chartreuse and Gray, it all looks great against the black wall.

Most Olive Green apparel usually has a military look to it, but it always works. This all black look with animal print shoes and an Olive Green coat is great.

Olive Green walls and window treatments really set off the white trim and built-in pieces in this dining room. Love the neutral chairs and rug as well.
