Color Combinations - Working with Greens

Using green in home decor is a popular choice for many people - including me.  My bedroom is mostly an apple green (with deep rose accents) and my den where I am now working is a sage green (with burgundy sofa).  I looked at a couple of references on using greens and found the following that I thought were useful:

There are specific words that come to mind for the color green.  Words like nature, calm, serene, soothing and 'Spring'.  

Muted shades of green such as olive, moss, and sage are more at home in relaxed country decor homes. The darker, richer shades of forest green and bottle green are traditionally used in more formal style homes.

...the glory of green is that it is one of the easiest of colors to mix with itself: you can put any number of greens together and be confident that they will work.

The complementary color for the color green is red … an even balance of a shade of green and red with the addition of white makes a great color scheme.
