Everyone has different tastes but for the ones who are planning to paint their wall green, has made a wise choice. For the ones who’re still confused, green is a colour that you should choose. The colours in our environment has a psychological value and have effects on our body, mind and emotions. Your mood may vary according to the colour that forms your environment.

Different Texture and Shades of Green Paint

There are various shades of green paint available in the market. The texture may vary for your exterior and interior walls.

First the hand applied drywall textures which includes towel texture, swirl texture, brush texture, knockdown texture, comb texture and stomp texture.

I have been painting a long time and green would not be a color that was used all that often. Sage green was in fashion for awhile years ago but these days it is greys.

Actually green is known by the shrinks to be a very calming color. In fact most psychologists will actually paint their offices and waiting rooms green. Don't ask me how I know though. I might crack.

Not at all. Just seems a bit odd to see an entire post about using the color green throughout a house. Can't see many actually doing that.
Hey it's summer down under. Maybe he's just in the spirit of it.

I would like the OP to qualify themselves so their expertise is not so readily dismissed. However, and in my opinion, color choices have to take into consideration the entire palette of one's environment before assuming that green will make them calm, smart, and hungry.

I, more or less, subscribe to a neutral bright, or warm palette that can be strategically accented with colors in various degrees of overtness and intensity.

funny you bring this up. I did a quick 6 day job on the interior of our house before we moved in. all the east facing walls I did as feature colors. (only 3) anyway In my girls bedroom I used an ID+ color. apparently that certain colors promote stuff like intellegence / calming or other crazy claims. however I used one called APPLE FRESH. which is like a pastel green only not a bold green really like a pastel version of fluorescent green.

this color apparently promotes intelligence, my oldest girl is 2 and she knows her abc's all the way through. so wonder if the green helped. hahahah

a friend of mine did something simlar afterwards but he used what i call "goblin green" and were talking in a downstairs bathroom, so if you are using the mirror with the lights on. your skin kinda looks rotten. lol

also I once painted a police station and when we did the holding cells they were like pastel pink and pastel blue and pastel yellow etc. the architect claimed they would effect the mood of detained people.

Maybe PT should have a green background color?
