This dark green bedroom is a cozy retreat, filled with eclectic decor from across the globe. A dark master bedroom is moody, romantic, and perfect for sleeping in on Saturday morning.
Do you want your bedroom to be cozy? The dark green bedroom walls in our master create a cozy space that is an inviting retreat after a long day.
Starting with hardwood hickory floors a year and half ago, this project has been long in the making. While it’s not 100% complete (is any room every really done?), I’m still excited to take you on a tour of our nearly-finished master bedroom.

Dark Green Master Bedroom Walls with Neutral Furniture
The spacious master bedroom with vaulted ceiling was a selling feature of our home – but it also felt a bit too cavernous painted in white (see the before tour or our cottage style home). Dark green walls, on the other hand, make the room cozy, warm, and welcoming.
The vaulted ceiling has original wood beams and trim, which we wanted to keep. However, the original base trim was inexpensive stained 3-1/4″ boards. So, during the hardwood floor installation, we replaced the baseboards with 6″ painted dark green trim to match the walls.
The green base trim also complements the brown grasscloth accent wall to the right of the room’s entrance way. I’ve talked about it before, but – yes – you can mix wood and painted trim in your home. Mixing trim allows me to embrace the character in our home, without feeling like I have to keep all of that original wood.
Last year, we upgraded the mattress to a king…. which meant we needed a new bed frame, too. I chose an upholstered wingback with clean, modern lines. I like versatile furniture, so we selected a classic linen color that will work with any color palette. Plus, I love the contrast of the light headboard against the dark green bedroom wall.
The bedding is a mix of cream and gray in stripes and solids. We bought an upholstered ottoman with storage and placed it at the foot of the bed. The furniture is anchored atop an 11×14 neutral rug (it’s actually the same as our living room rug, just in a different color).
On one side is a small vintage nightstand that we bought for our last home. Eventually, I may replace both bedside tables with a pair of matching small dressers, but that is not a priority. For now, the small nightstand serves our purposes just fine.

A refinished antique dresser sits on the other side. Each bedside table sits below a mid-century modern inspired wall sconce.
Eclectic Master Bedroom with Global Decor
A wood Ethiopian stool sits in the corner. I use it to place folded clothing that I’ll wear a second time. As we move through the room, you’ll see more global elements from our travels. It was important to me that the bedroom’s design incorporate souvenirs from our travels, as those are special memories for us.
The corner opposite the dresser has a full-length leaning mirror and bookshelves. In addition to displaying souvenirs, we also needed more space in our home for storing books. These shelves do both, while also filling an otherwise large, empty wall.
I filled the shelves with Ethiopian baskets, mementos from Hawaii, and other keepsakes. Since the baskets and books are colorful, I kept the rest of the room’s decor fairly neutral.
A pair of brass hooks near the mirror provide additional storage for my cardigan collection (yes, I may have too many cardigans…) and a gray recliner provides a spot to read a book. A throw pillow made from a Mexican blanket fits the global eclectic style in the room.

An antique chest of drawers (which matches the refinished bedside dresser) sets next to the chair, with a rattan lamp atop it.
Brown Grasscloth Accent Wall in a Master Bedroom
The final detail that really pulled together the eclectic bedroom style is a brown grasscloth accent wall. For the window wall, I wanted to use dark green blackout curtains. However, dark green curtains against a dark green wall seemed a little much.
My neighbor and good friend suggested grasscloth wallpaper. Brilliant! The grasscloth ties in well with the global aesthetic and builds upon the warm wood textures in the space.
I selected a mid-tone brown grasscloth. Initially, I though I might select a classic, light seagrass color, but the darker brown provided more depth and elegance.
Psst: You can check out the other grasscloths I considered in this story (we chose option #3).
Set between the windows is a favorite photo from Hawaii (you can download and print this Hawaiian art, too) below a picture light.
