Marble is no doubt a classic choice for kitchen countertops. Pair it with a nice wood stain and you’ll have a look that is decidedly clean and rustic at the same time. Perfect for the kitchen that needs to go both ways.
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.
One way of ensuring a smooth transition between functions on an open plan is to use the same color in the decor of adjacent spaces. It can be the primary color in one area and the accent color in the other.
It’s also important to find the right shade of green, the one which goes best with the style that you have in mind. Bright and bold colors usually go well with more modern or contemporary decors while muted and more neutral nuances are better-suited for traditional or retro decors.
