Army Green

This Martha Stewart paint is the most perfect shade of army green:

Martha Stewart "Clove"


It's called "Clove".  And if you go to Home Depot (where Martha Stewart paint is sold) this paint looks more like "chocolate brown" under the flourescent lights.  But trust me.  This paint is ARMY GREEN.  And, it's an insane shade of army green.  The perfect amount of green, perfect amount of khaki.  I used it on a recent project (that I can't share with you yet-- but in a month or so, I will!) and I'm thrilled with the results. 


I think that army green is a splendid color for kitchen cabinets.  Nate Berkus used it in his Chicago kitchen...

Great kitchen! Thanks for sharing it. I love the idea of the roller chairs in the kitchen, that make cleaning so much easier.

I really like the MS for Home Depot color options. I was pleasantly surprised when they were released and I think I've used them for 3 projects in the last few months.

Very excited to see the army green kitchen reveal!

I adore army green for both fashion and decor. I can't wait to see your project and in the meantime we'll keep the Martha Stewart color in mind for any potential uses.

I also recommend "Camouflage" by BM...a much, much lighter kind of army green, but really nice. We used it in my husband's study, above the chair rail, and are so happy with it!

Is it weird that I like army green and lilac together? Cannot wait to see the reveal. Such a teaser! So what did you think of our earthquake yesterday??? xoxo

Fab. I never thought I could get down with army green, but Nate Berkus' kitchen is pretty fantastic. Of course Martha would get it right. Looking forward to your big reveal : )

I'm super late on this one, but I painted our study this color a while ago and LOVE it!
