It's All Coming Up...Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  In kid world, that means wear your green today or you'll get pinched.  In my head it gets me thinking about green in the kitchen.  I know you've seen on Pinterest, HGTV, and in your design magazines the classic mix of the white with blue cabinets.  Whether it's base cabinets in a dark blue, or a navy island, it's everywhere.  As much as I do love the classic color combination of blue and white, I think this year we'll start seeing a subtle shift with less blue and it being replaced with a dark, mossy green.  Currently in design there's a focus on incorporating nature and nature's colors in our interiors.  So this would be a natural fit to have green in your kitchen.  

As I'm sure you've noticed brass has made a big comeback.  Brass, copper, any of those warm finishes will coordinate perfectly with your green cabinets.  In fact, those finishes will actually help accentuate the depth of the green that you've selected for your kitchen.  So go on, think outside the box a little, and enjoy these untraditional, but equally special "lucky" kitchens.  

 These are  original 1920s arched windows !!!  I'll say it again, you just can't get  character  like this nowadays.  And I know I don't need to state the obvious, that wine rack!

 The base cabinets and rugs in this  kitchen  bounce their colors off each other, and highlight each other.

 I bet you didn't look at this photo and think a bachelor lived in it.  Who says a  bachelor pad  has to have a tailored, mens suit feel?

 This is a nice dark, saturated  green  that would work in many house settings.

 Ok, Ok, green lacquered cabinets and that backsplash?!  The backsplash kinda reminds me of an updated diner.

Still not sure you can pull off green cabinets?  Try pulling the color into your backsplash.  It's a less permanent option, and usually a less expensive change if you decide in a few years that you really don't like it.  I might just have to add green to my kitchen in hopes that it gives me more luck on the cooking front.  

 The  fish scale tiles  are becoming more and more popular and in this malachite green it really makes a large impact.
