3. Dark and dramatic. Oxfordshire, UKDesigner: Kitchen Architecture
Go for elegant dark greenGreen in all its various hues is hugely popular right now. If you’re after a sophisticated scheme, dark green could be for you. This heritage-style kitchen, with its classic joinery, has been given a modern edge thanks to the dramatic bottle-green shade. The designers have contrasted the matt units with a glossy white benchtop, and elements of metal, wood and rattan give the space a touch of industrial chic. 11 ways to work deep, dark green into the kitchen
3. Heritage: Here you have a more ornate profile, with a variety of bolection (raised mouldings) and insertions. This door style is a great choice for more traditional homes, and adds detail to spaces with predominantly plain surfaces.Style note: There’s no hard-and-fast rule that all doors have to be in the same style. Mix-and-match can be an interesting and eclectic choice.
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 benchtops or splashbacks 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.
Cool dark green is hot newsIt’s the new grey, 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 LDF. It also features in the official complementary palette that accompanies the Dulux Colour of the Year 2017, announced this August. It’s going to be huge. Get in early.Browse more green-toned kitchens
