In the case of an open floor plan where the kitchen and living or dining room are directly connected, there has to be a pleasant and seamless transition between them and that’s where the kitchen island comes into play. A green island which matches the kitchen cabinets can be paired with a green ceiling or accent wall in the kitchen or with other matching design elements such as the curtains or the area rug.
A lighter shade of green can be better-suited for a beach-style kitchen. Mint green cabinets or cabinet fronts can be paired with wooden or white countertops and a subway tile backsplash for a retro-chic look.
Use green in combination with warm woods for a look inspired directly from nature. For instance, the fronts of the cabinets can be green while the rest of their bodies has a wooden finish, just like you see in this stylish and welcoming kitchen.
This type of washed look can be quite charming in certain settings. Be careful however not to overdo it because too much of a color or finish can overwhelm a space. Take some time to consider the big picture and the way each element interacts with its surroundings when they’re all put together.
