Use these great green kitchen colour ideas to get a perfect green kitchen to suite your style, budget and life. Green is a colour that we often associate with nature and freshness, and, used correctly, it can be an ideal shade for a kitchen. Crisp, bright leafy or lime green shades create a contemporary feel, while a paler, celery hue is an excellent option for a more subtle scheme. Add a fresh, organic feel to your kitchen by teaming a muted green with an off-white hue that is reminiscent of nature. An elegant, rich shade of green-grey on the walls will instantly warm up the space, creating a cosy, cocoon-like feel. Cool and refreshing, a mint hue will give your kitchen a bright and airy feel, while if your prefer a toned-down look, eau de nil-coloured cabinetry and furniture has an air of sophisticated Scandinavian design.
A great tip for picking the right shade is to be inspired by the shades of green found in the natural world – and in the kitchen, too! Think of a lime, an asparagus spear, a slice of cucumber, the skin of a cooking apple, a fragrant bunch of sage…

We like this subdued shade of olive here. Restful and sophisticated, it’s an easy-going colour without being bland. Team with grey and warmer putty shades for just enough flavour of the outdoors inside.
