Spouse spat

I have a sunroom my spouse and I are redecorating. I want it to feel like you are inside but you are outside. We are fightin over the accent color. We both agree on green but I like a cucumber green which is a light green but brings in some brightness where my husband prefers olive tones. The main color is light gray and we will be using the room only in spring summer and early fall. We will use it in the winter but only bc of the spa is in there otherwise it will no be of use.Anyway who do you think you like best?

  • I personally like olive tones better, but you are talking about making it feel like having the outside in and so forth which to me implies that you will have lots of plants. Olive green on greener is a bit yuck and dreary, which would make me sway toward the cucumber green.

  • Gray is a nuetral tone and olive is pretty nuetral too so I would go with alighter shade... but it depends on what shade of gray too

  • Thinking of matching it with the grey, I went towards the olive!

  • Personally, I'd also prefer the olive tones. Since this is an outside room, it's going to get dirtier than if it were in your house & I think the slightly darker green might show a bit less dirt.

  • i think the lighter green will make it appear more open...my bathroom is a darker shade of green and it seems small.
