Inspiration: Bright Green in the Kitchen

We recently talked about super bright kitchens that incorporate several different colors, but what about focusing on one majorly bright color? We're realizing that we're big fans of green (it used to be just kelly green) and we like that we're no longer just fans of one shade. We're equal opportunity green lovers.

We're in a rental and when we first moved in our landlord asked if we wanted to suggest a color to paint the kitchen. We had a really hard time deciding and eventually never suggested one at all. We don't know if it was due to laziness or him not hearing from us &mdash but the kitchen never got painted (we can't paint ourselves).

We're longing to move to an apartment that does allow painting. When/if that happens, we're dreaming of painting it green... bright green! When you're cooking you want to be inspired, and usually that inspiration comes from bright colors. We've noticed that our favorite meals to cook involve the most vegetables with the brightest colors, and we know that's not just a coincidence.

We absolutely love bright white kitchens as well. So, we're leaning towards a mix of bright green and bright white (images 2, 4 & 5 are great examples of that). The great thing about incorporating bright green into your kitchen, you can do it as subtly or has loudly as you want. Subtle could be including a bright green backsplash, or stools. While loud would be paint the whole darn thing green!

What do you think of Bright Green in the Kitchen?
