Olive Sprig by PPG

Olive Sprig swings a bit back to the warmer hues. After all, it does say olive in the name. PPG describes Olive Sprig as a midtone, neutral, lush green with an organic green undertone. It is a very refreshing, livable color.


Guacamole by Glidden

Guacamole is a confident green. It is intended to be avocado refreshing. But, you will be making a statement. One surprising hint: you’ll find that adding the contrasting green of plants will really enhance the effect of this hue.
