When we decide to refresh our home interior and get ready for the upcoming paintwork, it is important to choose the color we want to apply correctly.
It is not enough to just make sure that it will match the rest of the colors we have in our home. You need to be aware of certain color nuances in order to pick the right shade.
In this article, we will describe and discuss one of the most beautiful green colors of the Sherwin-Williams brand – a timeless and classic Vogue Green. You will find out what kind of color it is and what undertones it has. Also, we will tell you more about its light reflectance value and the way this color reacts to lighting.
Finally, we will provide you with coordinating colors and trim colors so that you know how to create the most harmonious color palette in your home. And of course, you will learn what rooms will benefit from having this beautiful green on their walls.
What Kind Of Color Is SW Vogue Green?
If you are in love with deep and rather dark colors, you will definitely enjoy Vogue Green SW-0065 paint color from the Sherwin-Williams brand! This green reminds you of the color of pines in a misty forest high in the mountains. As Encycolorpedia says, it is very deep and pretty dark, and we would say this shade of green is muted.
Nevertheless, it’s not the green that reads almost black on the walls. You can still see the green in it that is visible, especially in a well-lit room. Some of you might think now that this color is hard to use in your home since it is dark, but in fact, SW Vogue Green is pretty versatile!
This classic green color can bring depth to a wide variety of interior spaces and exterior facades, doors, and other areas and surfaces in your home.
If you use it in your kitchen, this rich and noble shade of green could be used on cabinetry and successfully paired with light-hue countertops. It would also look nice with creamy white tiles, and black, gold, or brass metallic accents, such as handlers, hangers, etc.
Undertones Of SW Vogue Green SW-0065
Even though this paint color may seem very simple, you should still learn more about its undertones. See, undertones tend to “hide” unless they get the right lighting.
In this case, some very unexpected shades may come out, turning the initial color into something completely different!
Speaking of SW Vogue Green, this olive-green color has brown undertones. It means that Vogue Green will not read a cool-toned green on your walls, rather you will see a warmer shade with a very slight brownish hue in it (some people often take these brown undertones for yellow but it’s not true).
Because of those notes of brown, Vogue Green looks rather warm in space. Also, warm undertones make this paint color easier to pair with other warm-toned colors. This is why SW Vogue Green is so versatile.
LRV of Vogue Green SW-0065
The way the paint color reacts to light can help you understand what rooms it is best to be used in.
When speaking of the way certain paint colors react to lighting, we need to consider what is called a light reflectance value, or LRV. This is the ability of the color to reflect light which affects the final shade we see on the walls.
The LRV value of SW Vogue Green is 9 (you may also find information that it’s 9.5). It means that this green is rather dark, as well as deep and rich. However, this color is still far from the darkest point of the LRV scale where black is located.
See, the LRV scale ranges from zero to 100 where zero stands for black color and 100 stands for pure white color respectively. So the higher the LRV of a paint color the lighter this color is on the wall.
This is the very basic description of the color, of course, but even with this little information, you will be able to better understand what you should expect from this awesome and rich leafy green.

You only need to pay attention to the lighting there in order to tell in advance how this green will show itself on the walls and how its undertones will work.
Vogue Green SW-0065 in the Living Room
If you want a classic and noble interior in your living room, use Vogue Green without hesitations. This color is rich enough but at the same time, it’s not way too dark. So you will get a very deep and pleasant green on your walls, warm enough to make the room feel cozy.
Of course, to work ideally, this color needs plenty of daylight and a lot of space. This is why we’d not recommend Vogue Green to those who have small or poorly lit living rooms. This color can only make them look smaller.
Vogue Green SW-0065 and Bedroom
Green is not a traditional color for bedrooms, but if you want to make your sleeping space look calmer, opt for this shade. Since this olive green has brown undertones, it will look pleasantly warm on your walls (but with no yellowness!).
However, we’d still recommend you use a lot of white color in your bedroom to avoid it seeming too dark.
Vogue Green SW-0065 for the Kitchen
Depending on the size of your kitchen, you might want to paint it all in Vogue Green or only leave a green accent wall. Besides, this color can also be used on your backsplash or cabinets (or both) if you prefer to have a few deep color accents with the walls remaining white.
Vogue Green SW-0065 in the Bathroom
The way you might use this green in your bathroom is pretty much the same as the way you use it in your kitchen. If the bathroom is big and properly lit, you might want to try and paint it all green.
However, we’d recommend you only use this awesome deep green on an accent wall or cabinets/drawers/vanity.
Vogue Green SW-0065 for the Exterior Use
SW Vogue Green is both interior and exterior color so don’t hesitate to use it on your exterior walls. It works well in both sunny areas and areas with cloudy/rainy weather.
The amount of daylight will affect the way the color reads of course, and you might see it as a warm olive-green in broad daylight, whilst on a cloudy day, Vogue Green might read slightly cooler.
Comparing SW Vogue Green With Other Colors
Even within one brand, there are plenty of shades of one color which makes it rather difficult for a non-professional to see the difference between them. Of course, when you need to pick the right shade of green, for example, you may find it very difficult and frustrating to look through all those color samples!
This is why we recommend you check out the comparative description of SW Vogue Green and a few other greens of different brands. Like that, it will be easier for you to make the right choice.
