What Houzz contributors are saying:
Semi-neutralsIn recent years, the trend of embracing semi-neutrals has returned. These are colours that can’t be considered true neutrals, but are still easy to combine and work with. Blues and greens, being such natural hues, tend to be the most cooperative of colours, and this is especially true when you choose mid-tone shades with a hint of grey, as seen in this kitchen by Brett Mickan Interior Design.When combined, such hues feel lively; but when neither is overly strong on its own, the resulting pairing isn’t over-the-top.
3. Location: Sydney, NSWWhy we love it: This is similar to the previous kitchen, but dialled up a notch. We are fans of the pairing of Dulux ‘Goyder Green’ on the island facing and Benjamin Moore ‘Tate Olive’ on the walls. These colours create a snug cottage appeal in a relatively generous kitchen area.
19. Location: Sydney, NSWWhy we love it: Blue and green should never be seen. Pffft! Clearly this Brett Mickan-designed room disproves that theory.
Green looks great in a related colour scheme (with colours that sit near it on the colour wheel). This dusty green is superb colour-blocked with a delicious green-blue. Again, notice how plenty of white and stainless steel accents keep the scheme fresh and light.
