What Houzz contributors are saying:
Using green at home. Pale mint and duck egg green look right at home in the kitchen, while soft spring-green walls can make for a refreshing atmosphere in a study, bedroom or living room. And for a traditional library, you can’t beat walls and bookcases painted a rich, deep, glossy green.How to Pick the Right Green Paint
A pale green washes through the kitchen, which features salvaged wood rafters, slate floors and a view of the gabled roof barn that inspired it all. Wall paint: custom by Donald Lococo Architects; windows: Weather Shield; beams: reclaimed, Cochran’s Lumber and Millwork; floor tile: Jud Tile; cabinet hardware: Restoration Hardware; sconce: Jefferson Collection, Hudson Valley; seat cushion: Simply Plaid, Kravet; tile: Neri in Celery gloss, Architectural Ceramics
Using green and wood in the kitchen. Pale mint green on cabinetry and beadboard walls looks quite cheerful in this farmhouse kitchen. The thick, bare wooden beams overhead bring an earthy warmth to the space. If your home is not blessed with rustic beams, you could create a similar mood with simple butcher block counters or a rough-hewn kitchen table. Be careful to choose a natural shade of green for eating and cooking areas — something too harsh could cast a sickly light on you and your guests.
Although the appliances in the kitchen are modern, other details, like the slate floor, would be at home in a 19th-century farmhouse. The gabled roof of the barn is clearly visible from the windows.Tile: Neri in Celery gloss, Architectural Ceramics
