swatches of blue color
swatches of green color
Here are some pairings of blues. Some have more green to make teal like the ones in the upper right and lower left, and some have more red to make purple like the upper left and lower right. (I wouldn't mix teal and purple) Keep working until you have a light and a dark you like. Make sure you have enough contrast between your light and dark.
Here are some green examples. Some of these have more yellow, like the one in the upper right and some have more gray, like the one in the upper left and lower right.
