What Colors Go with Hunter Green Carpet? [8 Ideas]

Last updated on June 11, 2024

Here are the colors that go with hunter green carpets in your home interior. These are 8 inspiring color schemes that will help you design around your favorite carpet (or one you’re stuck with.)

The best course of cation having such a prominent carpet in a room is try not to clash the colors. Contrast is your friend. So use lighter color schemes around it, use accents if necessary. A lot of off-whites will make the rug stand out.


Earthy Tones

Tans and golden tones are green but not too dark. In a space facing west or with several windows, you might think that you can paint the room in a darker color without being afraid that the room will look like a cave. Consider painting your walls a soft tan, then accentuating your space—drapes, curtains, and pillows—in gold for a lighter look.

If you’re more adventurous, paint the room deep in gold, apply a light tan to balance the walls’ dark tones and the carpets.

If you don’t want to have a too bright or blank room and don’t want to risk painting too dark, take light browns into account. The carpet’s dark green color will shine a little by a faint brown with white or white trim.

Browns and earth tones fit well in rooms with several windows or places with a lot of sun-facing East. When you like the concept of a darker room, paint the room with a richer brown color.


Green has an immediate appeal as a familiar and beloved color in nature in inner space. Dark green tapestry evokes a relaxed and soothing feel of grass and shade. A palette that blends dark green and pale natural neutrals provides wall colors such as the calcareous, silver moon, wobble, or creamy white.

These lighter shades complement the dark floor’s color and allow the option of additional accent colors in stronger media tones like teal blue, red cranberry, or burnt orange. A medium-toned neutral color such as the khaki tan works well in a classic combination with hunter green, especially significant when accentuated on white woodwork.

Complementary Colors

Study a color wheel to grasp the relationships between colors. Colors next to each other are equivalent on the color wheel. A vibrant, analogic hunter green palette blends clothing colors like peacock blue, chartreuse, and white with pale gray-green walls.

Blue and yellow, green happily applies to green-blue, green-yellow, blue-green, and yellow-green, along with each other’s colors and shades. By creating tints when adding white and adding black, analog colors, several attractive colors are possible in a room with a green hunter tap.


A monochromatic palette produces a single color scheme. Look for a painted band with the darkest color to match your hunter green tapestry and pick one of the tints for your walls. The lighter the color, the more room is opened. Add white trim for a crisp, architectural detail focus. Lighter, gray-green tones such as wise are also good hunter green companions.

If you are fascinated by dark wall colors, paint a green hunter to fit the carpet for a dramatic effect. White or creamy trim opens the dark wall color and offers light neutral tones replicated in fabrics and accessories.

Creamy Tones

Not only will your hunter’s green tapestry work well for your walls, but it will also lighten the room. This is particularly important in light-free places or spaces facing the north, south, or west of the house. An off white, winter white, cream, or light beige would make your room bright and complement your green carpet.

Ensure that your trimmings— wainscots, chair shaping, shoe shaping, or crown—-are painted bright white to keep your room light and spacious. Maintaining your furniture in the cream will also help to shine in the room, but you can add hunter green pillows or raise them into the green.

Blueish Greens

Try to tie the green carpeting with a pale mint-green on your walls, white or cream coating to break the transition from pale green to dark green. You can find that the mint green walls somehow tone down the deep green tapestry.


Consider getting an accent wall if you want to play with color. Paint a dark accent in one giant wall of the room—dark brunette, tan, or even a dark green match—then paint a beige color to the rest of the room that compliments the accent wall.

To avoid too colorful a place, make sure your furniture and accents are all light and neutral. Accent walls are ideally suited to living quarters, dining rooms, or high-deck family rooms.

Mix and Match

A contrastingly colored accent wall brings life and interest to a room. For instance, with the hunter green tapestry, the red-green complementary to the color wheel – forms a great wall of accent with three white walls.

Accent walls are most effective if the surrounding walls are pale neutrals like vanilla, silver, or white in rooms with dark green carpet. Lime green or any tone of the earth may be compatible with accents.

A deep or pale shade of a neutral color on the wall forms a subtle low contrast wall. Accent wall colors are most effective if the color in fabrics and accessories is replicated in the room.
