Pistachio is a lovely color and can be "lived with" for a long time. Not so with the other brighter greens. Greying some of the greens is very successful. Cabinets are an expensive part of a kitchen. Most people will tire of some of the brighter colors. Think twice about what you can live with long term.

@rebecca Abraham Design - I've been living with my bright green and white cabinets for 4 years and I'm not getting tired of it.

If you follow a trend for trends sake, then sure those types of people will likely get tired of bright green, but then again they'd probably get tired of any colour.

Pick a colour you love and don't care whether it goes out of style and you'll still be happy with it. I also advocate for designing for your home's architecture so that you're not constantly chasing after trends for your large renovations (your kitchen cabinets, bathroom tile etc). If you have a craftsman, go for something in that style, have a MCM, design for MCM etc.

I chose a bright avocado that works well with my 1960's home.I thought that when we get around to renovating the kitchen in 10 years that I'll want to go all wood (teak) but honestly I love the green so much that I'm not sure I could imagine having a kitchen without it or some other bright colour. I don't plan on selling ever so why not go for something I'd enjoy?
