The color green is making rounds in kitchens this year and it’s coming in all shades. Green kitchen cabinets alone have become a big trend in kitchen designs. From cabinets to backsplashes to pendant lighting, green offers a unique and calming flair for any home.
What Shades of Green are In?
As green has historically been regarded as a calming color, it is no wonder that amid the pandemic, we are trying to work towards creating a calm atmosphere in our homes. Shades of green do just that, and the color palette from Benjamin Moore is a shining example of what we can do in our homes.
Our favorite choices for green interiors include most of the subdued tones offered at Benjamin Moore. Dry Sage gives an elegant nod to your kitchen when used on kitchen cabinets, as does Wethersfield Moss. If you prefer a deeper jewel tone, consider their Hunter Green to provide a richer contrast in an otherwise white contrast.
Softer greens create a relaxing atmosphere, while a darker or deeper green can be just as inviting depending on your green kitchen goals. If you’re looking for something very versatile, mossy greens pair well with white, various shades of gray, and warm wood tones.
Green — Powerful Undertone
Naturally, most people do not want to revisit the green shades from the 1970s – remember the psychedelic greens and yellows? That’s not something we want to bring back! Instead, the greens in our homes today are taking cues from nature for a refreshing feel at home. For example, deep emerald green kitchen cabinets paired with white Carrara marble countertops, darker wood tones in flooring, and gold or brass accents create a space that makes you feel happy and calm. A more elegant and refined look may include sage green kitchen cabinets paired with black or dark gray countertops. Picture it with gold accents, a black range, and integrated appliances to create a seamless and inviting appearance.
If you’re only looking for green accents, imagine a white kitchen with an island that has green wainscotting. The splash of color becomes a focal point without being overwhelming. If your kitchen is currently a different color and you want to work with what you have, search for coordinating color palettes. For example, if you have gray and teal, you might consider adding a lighter shade of green to complement existing colors.
All Trends Come and Go
This is not the first time shades of green have come to the forefront of interior design. We expect these nature-inspired colors to be on-trend for at least the next decade. With that in mind, we encourage you to bring the beauty and calm of the outdoors inside as you create your piece of paradise.
