Green is one of my all time favorite colors — and not only because it can be as eye popping or subtle as you want due to its extreme versatility. Green isn’t just for crayons and kids room, so go for it!

If I were to imagine a kitchen with tall green cabinets, I can’t say that I would immediately be jumping for joy and screaming success! However, after seeing how amazing and eye opening the color is in the kitchen — consider me a believer. I’m a huge lover of bright, all white kitchens, so that’s actually saying quite a lot coming from me.

Green walls in the living room can add some serious sophistication, especially when paired with an additional color such as blue. Throw white in there to play referee and to ensure the room doesn’t get too bogged down. If you’re wanting something a tiny bit more subtle — paint a piece of accent furniture green. Maybe a bed side table or a bench in the entryway. You’ll be surprised by how big of a difference it’ll make!
