What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Highlight the history. The historic look is another kitchen trend emerging on Houzz, and inky green is the perfect shade if you want to hark back to simpler times. Black and navy are two other popular options, but there’s something about British racing green that instantly conjures up the past.Pair it with marble countertops or backsplashes to enhance that built-to-last feel, and choose your lighting with care. Vintage originals or thoughtful reproductions with a gentle industrial edge will top off the downstairs-at-Downton-Abbey effect.
1. Heighten sophistication. This deep green kitchen has a lovely old-world elegance. The shade highlights the classic design of the cabinetry by creating deep shadows in the panels. Green and brown are often found together in the natural world, so it’s a good idea to pair the two colors. The deep hue looks beautiful next to the light wood and natural materials.
Cool dark green is hot news. It’s the new gray, the new indigo and the new black all rolled into one (and don’t assume it’s time to repaint those moody hues, either — this is just the newest incarnation). This classical shade is popping up on walls, cupboards and upholstery all over Houzz and was very much in evidence during the festival. It also features in the official complementary palette that accompanies the Dulux Color of the Year 2017, announced this past August. It’s going to be huge. Get in early.
