I like green but I've lived with it in the past and found I tired of it quite quickly. My sister had a dark teal kitchen in the 80s, and though it made a statement, it was also a bit oppressive with everything that color. Just a wall, like in the example shown, is a treat.

I painted and glazed my kitchen island green, leaving the surrounding cabinets stained. It changed up the kitchen without committing to full-on green cupboards. The cat lover in me is slayed by the kitty in #2!

I like neutral kitchens best, in terms of paint and cabinetry. I’ve seen a few pretty ones in other colors, but something like green or blue seems as though it’d look dated quick - and it would be tough to match furniture and wall art. I stayed in an Airbnb in Germany a couple summers ago, the kitchen was neutral — except for the purple fridge! It looked like a 50s-style item, in a good way. An entire kitchen in purple would be overwhelming, but the statement piece worked awesome.
