2. Soothing minty light green

Green is among the colors that are considered to be quite calming, according to Elle Décor. That's certainly true of this soothing light mint shade that's been used in a fun yet relaxing bedroom that welcomes you in and makes you want to chill out.

3. Bright light green playroom

For anyone who's interested in a chic bohemian style, then this is the perfect green for you! With a slightly cooler undertone, it's still warm and light enough to help create a comfortable space.

5. Light green with a bright undertone

Classic pink and blue nurseries are nice regardless of what gender a little one might be. But a baby room that's green is also a great choice, especially when yellow accents are used to bring out the bright undertone in the light shade.

6. Mossy light green

Sprigs of eucalyptus aren't the only gorgeously green touch in this bathroom. The paint color — which is a marvelous mossy light green — is just as pleasing to the eye.

7. Green-grey gorgeousness

Grey walls can be incredibly chic and wonderfully sleek. The same can definitely be said of this light green-grey color that's used in an elegantly contemporary living room.

8. Lush light lime green

You might think that lime green is the perfect color for a kitchen. While that's undoubtedly true, it's also a lovely shade to use in other spaces like a vibrant living room or lush outdoor area.

9. Stunning light sage green

A light take on sage green, this stunning hue was the most popular shade of 2021, according to Google Trends (via Better Homes & Gardens). While it suits plenty of styles, it undeniably looks amazing on these vertical wood panels in a bathroom.

10. Fresh light grass green

Although this green could take on a darker tone if paired with a darker paint color and dark décor, the white wall and white accents keep it a brighter version that's almost a light grass green.

11. A mix of light lime and olive green

Tone down a dynamic lime green and add in a splash of olive and what do you find yourself with? A light green shade that is just as striking as it is unique.

12. Soft and creamy light green

Another option that initially seems to have cooler hints, you'll start to notice that this is actually a noticeably soft shade. That's because the light green color almost has a creamy tone to it.

13. Light smoky grey

Fall in love with light smoky grey. Match it with white bed linens and a forest green chair and you've put together a room that you'll always be excited to come back to and relax in.

14. Yellowy light green

Green shades that have a strong yellow undertone can sometimes look a little off when used in a dark space. However, when added to a room with lots of sunshine, it can look just as good as this yellowy light green.

15. Fair green kitchen

A shade that leans toward "fair green," this fabulous light hue brings a natural touch to a kitchen that perfectly combines a formal aesthetic with minimalist décor. Dark green plants with a single dark green vase help to fully bring out the lighter tone.
