What color compliments dark green ceramic tile?

I am purchasing a new home that has dark green ceramic tile and I want to paint my walls looking for any and all color types that will compliment the floor or go well with it. Thanks!

Answer:

It really depends on personal taste. The easy way out would be white or beige, but those don't have any personality to them and would feel too sterile and impersonal. I strongly advise you against using another green tone, which would make the green too present in the room.

I personally think yellow may be a wonderful choice. You could go for a vibrant golden tone, or perhaps a more coppery hue of the gold, an simple sunny yellow, or an extremely pale yellow hue. The proper yellow can work wonders to a room with sunlight, as it makes the room glow. A nice canvas colour, like a more airy beige with yellow tones, may look nice as well, but this is unfortunately a hard colour to describe. If you are trying a neutral look, you could go for a taupe colour as well.

Brown is a good colour to think about, as well. A warm, but muted terra-cotta colour, a chocolatey brown . . . This will make a room more intimate and cozy, but can also make a room much smaller, so don't go for an intense, overpowering brown.

I am not a fan of pairing peach or coral pink with dark green personally, but these are tried-and-true combinations that are used quite commonly. However, I have often associated these colours with outdated homes or decoration.

If possible, buy a small amount of a few paint colours and paint a small patch of each near each other so you can see how it might look.

I suggest you go to the link at the bottom and find a colour close to your tile for an accent colour, then experiment with different overall paint shades. Good luck.
