Color of The Month

Basque Green

SW 6426

A carefree oasis always looks better when it’s dressed in green.

Leave your worries behind with Basque Green’s effortless vibe. No matter the setting, this traveled hue can bring any destination home thanks to its versatile style that translates from coast to coast.

Why We Love It

See how we brought Basque Green to life three different ways. 


Why not bring the coast to you? Modern Coastal’s new take on seaside style makes your everyday feel like an elevated getaway. With a new look that leans classic and natural, this beach-inspired revival favors the moodier hues found in nature instead of the bright ones. From the rolling blue waves to the grass-covered dunes, this staycation palette is a breath of fresh (salty) air. 

The Trend: Modern Coastal 
Get the Look: Nautical Lighting, Sun-Bleached Hues, Classic Patterns 

Desert Dreams

This plant-filled haven isn’t a mirage, but the desert modern vibes might have you feeling otherwise. Basque Green’s unique color makes it the perfect star for an entryway whose style is equally free-spirited. With an abundance of desert botanicals and boho accessories, you can easily craft an outdoor space that sets the tone for a good time. 

The Trend: Desert Modern
Get the Look: Potted Greenery, Global Patterns, Natural Finishes 

Mid-Century Mainstay 

Some styles are so iconic they’re always around – and keep getting better. A vintage mashup of nostalgic decor and upcycled furnishings create a retro masterpiece that pays homage to the past with a present-day twist. Use Basque Green to boldly color an entryway where your mid-century favorites can blend with today’s finds. 

The Trend: Mid-Century
Get the Look: Metallic Accents, Solid Wood Furniture, Bold Color

  4. I don’t care for it in the livingroom. It’s a retro color from the 1950’s and I remember it well. They would put two walls dark green or olive and two walls light green.

  5. I have a large feature wall running from my living room to 2 story front entry that are avocado.feom 15 yrs ago. Looking to refresh the same walls with basque green SW 6426. The other 3 walls of the living room connect to the eating area and kitchen. I was thinking of Shiitake on those walls. Floors are hickory that tends to a yellowish and the kitchen cabinets are a bright white. All these rooms face north. Does Shiitake go? I was also looking at Loggia or Malabar. What would a white ceiling color and trim color be?
