10 Inspiring Dark Green Kitchens
I'm not sure if it's the arrival of the holiday season, or our natural turn toward cozier and deeper hues in winter, but as I contemplate a direction to take for my own kitchen I can't stop feasting on the possibilities of working color into my home with green.
The light-filled Los Angeles kitchen of actress and writer Candis Cayne (above) has my mind whirring with possibilities. A mix of Moroccan influences and minimalist iron frame windows and doors, it's a stylish heart of the home where I'd be happy to spend most of my time.
With so many white kitchens out there, why not enrichen this space instead with color? Here a deep forest green provides a perfect backdrop to some great flea market art. Those veiny countertops too...BRAVO.
I love the mix of industrial lighting and Shaker-style cabinets in this kitchen. Even with such tall ceilings a monochromatic color scheme works beautifully. Check out the nooks for cutting board storage built into the cabinets!
These people definitely share my passion for green (above and below). Love the transition from sitting room to kitchen (valuable for swifty snack retrieval during commercial breaks). Green tile, not paint makes this a distinctive and artful space, the color carried through to the collections on the open shelving.
Smaller kitchens like mine can benefit from a bold dip into green. Check out how L.A.'s own Jungalow design maven Justina Blakenley made her kitchen sing with green tile, plants, and pops of copper.
Another great pairing of color and warm metal--this time a green more in the family of teal with a swoon-worthy copper sink.
Green can also just be restricted to the color of your cabinets. I can't take my eyes off the scallop pattern on the doors of these.
Now let's see that green dark get glossy to make any other color in the room pop. I'd be happy to make myself comfortable in this space, a home converted out of a former YMCA camp in Northern California. Martini, anyone?
Chartreuse in the kitchen? If you're looking for an undeniably contemporary look, this is it. Love the gloss of these lacquer cabinets mixed with a mid-century walnut grain.
Would you try green in your kitchen, beyond your vegies?
