Green cabinets have gained popularity in kitchen design as they embody warmth, rejuvenation, and renewal. “Green is a perennial favorite, but the palette has come to the forefront over the last two years,” says Patrick O’Donnell, international brand ambassador for Farrow & Ball. “This relationship has been heightened recently due to perceived benefits of how we respond to the palette, which, in the right shade, can be ultimately restful and calming.” Green is also surprisingly easy to work with, as it pairs perfectly with many other colors.

“Green is a versatile color that works well whether your style is modern or traditional, cottage or glam. It can have a calming effect, as it brings the color of nature indoors, but it can also be moody or energizing, soft or bold. Remember that the light quality, photo editing, and monitor settings can affect a color’s appearance, so be sure to test large samples in your kitchen before committing to a color!” ~ Leaderbuilders

This Chicago kitchen, remodeled by Flemming Interiors, was one of the most popular on Houzz this year. It shows the new trend from all-white cabinets to two-tone and three-tone schemes in neutral colors.

If you are presently researching different kitchen cabinet options, I have created posts on bluewhite, cream, two-tone cabinets and black kitchen cabinets and kitchen backsplash, and farmhouse kitchen cabinet ideas.

Gray-Green & Light Green Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

Choosing the right cabinetry is one of the most important decisions when designing a kitchen. Consider grey-green kitchen cabinets if you want a unique and stylish option. Here are some tips on how to design with this beautiful color:

1. Choose the right shade: Grey-green comes in many shades, from light and airy to dark and moody. Consider the overall style of your kitchen and choose a shade that complements it.

2. Pair with complementary colors: Grey-green pairs well with neutral shades like white, cream, and beige. It also looks great with warm wood tones and metallic accents.

3. Add texture: To add visual interest to your grey-green cabinets, consider adding texture. You could opt for a matte finish or choose a cabinet with a wood grain texture.

4. Keep it simple: Grey-green cabinets are a statement piece, so keep the rest of your kitchen design simple. Opt for minimalist hardware and a simple backsplash to let the cabinets shine.

Following these tips, you can create a beautiful, unique kitchen design with grey-green cabinets.

The lower cabinets in this kitchen are custom-stained rift-cut oak. The upper cabinets are painted in Galveston Gray by Benjamin Moore. “Because there are 30 feet of cabinetry on one wall alone, we wanted cabinetry that was still light and bright but felt warm,” says Flemming, who used Houzz to gather inspiration photos for this project. “We achieved this by incorporating wood tones with the gray upper cabinets and using a light-colored countertop and backsplash.”

This beautiful kitchen has a marble backsplash in herringbone pattern, brushed metal range hood, brass pendants and a custom metal range hood.  Graystone 1475 by Benjamin Moore was chosen for the cabinets. Graystone is a concise collection of soft neutrals that feature a snapshot in color of America’s most popular, well-traveled regions. Geographically inspired with tones that are welcoming, America’s Colors’ palette of 42 subtle colors delivers a collection ranging from the pale gray tones of our beautiful coastlines to the rich, clay earth tones of the Southwest desert.

This kitchen designed by Caitlin Flemming has a soft gray palette, well-placed greenery and brushed brass accents throughout. The cabinet color is Pigeon by Farrow & Ball which is named after the colour of the bird often sighted around the London landscape. Softer and bluer than more contemporary grey shades like Mole’s Breath, Pigeon is particularly suited for use in boot rooms, cloakrooms or darker spaces like studies and panelled rooms. It is also incredibly popular in kitchens.

The lighter tones in these kitchen cabinets pair well with the white walls and the brass hardware. The cabinets are  painted in Castle Grey by Farrow & Ball.
Castle Gray’s first use may have been on the exterior woodwork of a castle, but it’s a wonderfully versatile shade for homes of all kinds, inside and out. It is particularly striking when used to ground kitchen islands, or in the back of bookcases to create depth and balance.

Blue-Green Kitchen Cabinets

Consider blue-green cabinets if you want to add a splash of color to your kitchen. This trendy shade is perfect for adding a touch of personality to your home. Here’s how to decorate with blue-green kitchen cabinets:

1. Choose your shade: Blue-green can range from a pale seafoam to a deeper teal. Decide on the intensity of color that you want in your space.

2. Pair with neutrals: Since blue-green is a bold color, it’s best to balance it with neutral tones like white, gray, or beige. This will help create a cohesive look.

3. Add metallic accents: Metallic finishes like gold or brass can help elevate the look of your blue-green cabinets. Try adding hardware or light fixtures with these finishes for a touch of glam.

4. Incorporate natural elements: Wood accents or natural stone countertops can warm your kitchen and complement the blue-green color.

5. Accessorize with complementary colors: Blues and greens are complementary colors. Add accessories like a patterned rug or decorative items in shades of blue or green to tie the look together.

With these tips, you’ll have a stylish and cohesive kitchen with blue-green cabinets in no time!

The use of tongue and grooved panelling behind the Belfast sink creates a more classical look whereas the reeded glass and brass hardware are a nod to traditional English design.

Sage & Olive Green Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

If you’re looking to decorate with sage and olive green cabinets, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, it’s essential to consider the other colors in the room. Sage and olive green pair well with neutral beige, gray, white tones and natural materials like wood and stone.

Consider incorporating different textures and patterns, such as a woven rug or patterned curtains, to add texture to the space. Additionally, adding some plants or greenery can enhance the natural feel of the sage green cabinets.

When it comes to accessorizing, consider using metallic accents such as brass or copper to add warmth and shine to the space. You can also use decorative items like vases, candles, and picture frames to add pops of color that complement the sage green cabinets.

Overall, decorating with olive and sage green cabinets can create a calming and natural feel in your space. By incorporating neutral tones, raw materials, and texture, you can create a cohesive and stylish design that highlights the beauty of your cabinets.

Heidi Callier’s work is filled with kitchens that use sometimes-muted (and often moody) hues to maximum effect on cabinets and millwork.  Here Callier combined two previously separate rooms to create a kitchen large enough for a family of five. “It is very much of melding of styles and a play on and new,” she says. “The cabinets have a more modern profile, the tile is a play on classic Delft, and there’s a nice dose of richly patinaed brass.” The stools are by Thomas Hayes in a Keleen leather.

Are you looking to update your kitchen with a fresh, modern look? Olive green kitchen cabinets might be just what you need! Here are some tips for decorating with this trendy color:

1. Pair with light-colored countertops and backsplash. Olive green can be a bold statement color, so balancing it with lighter hues is essential. A white or cream-colored countertop and backsplash can help create a sense of balance in the space.

2. Add metallic accents. Brass or gold hardware on the cabinets makes them pop. You can add metallic light fixtures or accessories to tie the look together.

3. Introduce natural elements. Olive green is a natural color, so incorporating wood or stone elements in the space can help create a cohesive look. Consider adding a butcher block countertop or a stone backsplash.

4. Use complementary colors. Olive green pairs well with earthy tones like mustard yellow, burnt orange, and deep red. Consider adding these colors through accessories like dish towels or small appliances.

Following these tips, you can create a beautiful modern kitchen with olive green cabinets as the focal point.

When brushed onto exterior surfaces, the rich pigments respond extraordinarily to all types of light and magically appear much greener than on our colour card. Within the home, this deep hue appears almost black unless in very well lit rooms.”

Is green a Good Color for Kitchen Cabinets?

Many people consider green to be an excellent color for kitchen cabinets. It can complement a variety of styles, from farmhouse to modern. Green can also create a calming and soothing atmosphere in the kitchen. However, choosing the right shade of green is essential to avoid clashing with other colors in the space. Ultimately, the decision on whether or not to go with green cabinets comes down to personal preference and the overall design aesthetic of the kitchen.

Adding Green to the Kitchen

One easy way to add green to your kitchen is by incorporating plants. Not only do they add a pop of color, but they also improve air quality.

Consider placing a few potted herbs on your windowsill or hanging a plant from the ceiling. Another way to add green is by painting your cabinets or walls. A muted sage or olive green can create a calming atmosphere, while a bright lime green can bring energy and vibrancy to the space.

You can add green through your accessories, such as dish towels, placemats, or a colorful rug. Just be sure to balance the green with other colors and textures to avoid overwhelming the space.

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.

  • Traditional Country Home

Atlanta Traditional Country Home

Today we begin a tour of a stunning Atlanta home where the pallet was inspired by the home owner’s (Jane Hight) vast collection of blue-and-white Imari porcelain inherited from her mother and grandmother. Having served as the accountant for interior designer Lauren DeLoach for several years, it was natural for Hight to enlist the designer’s help when decorating her home. When it came to a color palette, the pair looked no further than Hight’s beloved family porcelain. “While we knew we would use blue, finding the right shade took some study,” says DeLoach. “We didn’t want a too-saturated hue, but we didn’t want it too pale. We also needed another color to add punctuation marks here and there, so the salmon hue came from the Imari porcelain.”

The small and compact English-style country home is 1,400-square-feet and situated on a sweeping pasture across from the Inn at Brays Island in South Carolina. The owners hired Interior Designer, Beth Webb to create a pastoral blend of Anglo and Low Country traditions. “It’s interesting how a house this tiny can be so INCREDIBLY LIVABLE. Inside, all that extreme verticality means the rooms feel neither contained or compressed. Plus the house has a beautiful orientation on the property, so there’s a lovely dappling of light morning, afternoon, and evening. We took advantage of this as much as possible, especially in the galley kitchen, which we designed as kind of a non-kitchen kitchen, a space that looks more like a sun-splashed garden room with that huge window.”

Fall Decorating Ideas

Once leaves begin to change and the warm air of summer begins to turn crisp, it's time to start thinking about fall decorating ideas. Whether you have a cozy farmhouse or a modern rustic retreat, there are plenty of ways to add autumnal touches to your home. Remember, fall decorating doesn't have to be expensive or time-consuming. Pillows and throws go a long way in transforming a room quickly, and fall is the perfect time to trade out lightweight fabrics with materials that are heavier in weight and texture that add a sense of warmth. Use earthy hues and gorgeous knits for a well-layered look. Drape an extra throw on an accent chair or sofa to add coziness.
