When choosing a paint color for the cozy media room in a midtown apartment, I knew a dark green would tie together the soothing color palette and add lots of depth to the room. It also eased the contrast between the walls and the navy blue sectional. I chose Behr Dark Everglade for its rich emerald hue – it has plenty of saturation while being dark and moody so it definitely doesn’t dull a room. I opted for a high-gloss finish in this space, so it reads a little lighter in these images from the extra reflection.
