    Default Need a great green paint color..

    I'm having a hard time finding the perfect green paint color for our kitchen/dining room. I am looking for a modern color with some yellow tones. One color I like is dill pickle by Benjamin Moore but it's pretty
    bright. Any suggestions ladies?

    No suggestions, but will be looking for some ideas of my own. DD is super into frogs and green so I'm thinking of a re-do of her room and need a good froggie green (just for one wall, I don't want to go too crazy). Maybe I need to find the right frog and have them color match it...lol.

    Tracy, when we painted DD's nursery we used a really bright green color for the bottom part of her walls. It was definitely a kermit the frog like green. I can hunt down the paint can if you'd like. We got it from Lowe's.

    You may want to check out the decor blog www.younghouselove.com. They just repainted their kitchen a shade of green with yellow undertones. It's super fresh and pretty looking. (I'm sorry I can't find the exact link to the post of their kitchen now but it should be easy to find once you go to their blog.) Goodluck!

    I had my dining room/living room painted Benjamin Moore Lehigh Green, and I loved the results.

    I'm in love with Sherwin Williams Soft Fern. It might not be the tone you are looking for, though. It's a very calming color - found it in a cottage by the water on the cliffs of Maine and put it in my "someday house" folder. Will definitely use it for a living room, dining room or kitchen someday depending on lighting.

    I love the California Paints color "Celery." It was one of the colors I looked at last time I was choosing paint colors. I ended up going with a blue color instead, but I still love this one!
