Greenbelt | In the Sunroom

Welcome to Paint Color Crush, a weekly design incorporating a winning paint color with some great finds, and recommendations for ways to save, splurge, and DIY the look.

Since it’s March and the month to celebrate the arrival of springtime, as well as St. Patrick’s Day and the Emerald Isle (near and dear to my heart!) I thought it would be fun to explore some gorgeous greens this month. Affliliate links are included in this post for your convenience.

Today’s color is a fresh and bright green sure to bring some life to your home!

Sherwin Williams Greenbelt is a rich, bright kelly green.

Here’s how I’m dreaming of using this color:

navy + kelly green + white + natural  elements

in a fresh, light filled space!

SPLURGE on a this slipcovered sofa. Mark’s parents have had a sectional from C&B for over 20 years and it’s still going strong, and our own favorite sofa that we’ve ever owned, for comfortability and durability, was from Crate and Barrel.  Sadly in our last house we had a septic flood in our basement where the sofa was being stored temporarily, and everything that was down there had to be thrown out. After trying a few other sources over the years, next time we buy a couch we’re definitely going back to C&B!

SPLURGE also on a beautiful, original piece of artwork. Etsy is such a great resource for one of kind pieces from talented artists, including this beauty by Megan Smey at Painting Meg. Her other pieces are gorgeous too!

DIY – paint something this delicious kelly green (Greenbelt SW-6927).

A small dresser or console table, the back of bookcases, thrifted lamps……give this color center stage for a pop of fresh green that lends itself to so many color palettes throughout the year. Blue & white ginger jars or pottery pieces look SO beautiful against a green backdrop – they are seriously the perfect marriage.


HONORABLE MENTION – the Robert Allen Malakos fabric is reminiscent of malachite and works with so many different colors! Incorporate it into your space in the form of pillows, or buy it by the yard and recover dining chair cushions or an upholstered bench (hmmmm….I just so happen to have a bench that needs recovering!).

Have you seen how my dear friend Jennifer of Dimples & Tangles used this fabric to completely revive stools she found on Craigslist (with barely any sewing I might add!)? Now you see why I’m obsessed with this fabric. Isn’t she amazing? Check out the transformation and tutorial here.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this design and all the ways you can bring it to life in your own abode! If you’re intrigued by SW’s Greenbelt, see it in different spaces by following the Paint Color Crush Pinterest board.

Thanks so much for sharing my project, Lisa! I'm in love with those navy chairs. I've seriously been contemplating getting rid of our leather recliners and getting something navy. Heading over to check them out! Hope you have a great weekend!

Jennifer I'm seriously thinking about getting one of those chairs for my living room. They're on sale and free shipping right now too! The chair comes in other colors too but I'm feeling the navy in a big way. :)

Hi Lisa,

This is a favorite color combination of mine too! Love your design board. Just wanted to let you know you're linking to a different coffee table. Have a great weekend!

Denise you're so sweet - thanks for letting me know! I fixed the coffee table link but saw that it's out of stock until May :(
