Then you can also choose to give all walls the same colour green with a beautiful wall paint. Choose different types of paint, such as a smooth chalk paint or a paint with colour nuances. Do you like lighter colours better? Then get bedroom inspiration for light green walls, gray-green walls or mint green. Of course you can also paint the walls in a neutral colour and choose colour in the curtains in the bedroom. Or just make green paneling so that the colour is less present.

Green in the bathroom

You can achieve a relaxed ambiance in your bathroom with the colour green. Paint your bathroom tiles for a different look, paint the walls with a washable wall paint or opt for a colour nuance by using lime paint. Lime paint is a breathable paint that is bacteria and fungal resistant, making it perfect for the bathroom. It is important to finish it with a sealer to make it water-repellent and wipable. Never use lime paint in the wet areas such as the shower cabin. Do you opt for a more subtle green accent? Then choose green accessories such as a green marble top on your bathroom furniture, plants, towels or paint an antique bath as above in a beautiful green colour.
