Tinted-white trim or accent walls bring this unexpected shade to life.
This muddy-green looks freshest paired with a pale pink or lavender tint rather than a predictable white or cream paint. Try it in vintage-inspired spaces, either as wall colour, upholstery, throw pillows or accent furniture. It's also a great shade to pair with beautiful warm metals.
