Green may not be the first color that comes to mind when you think about renovating your kitchen or updating your dining room, but we're seeing proof that easy breezy shades of green could be exactly what you need to bring calm, comforting and chic to your space.

KM4830 Tree Pose for minimal retro kitchens with white tiles and cutting board countertops

White and blue kitchen cabinets continue to prove long-lasting and versatile color trends for kitchens. But more and more we're seeing a fresh take on farm, country, retro, and even mid-century styles with wonderful shades of celery, mint, and sea green tinted with just a touch of white or gray to give these comfy colors versatility beyond our expectations.

Paired with cool stainless accents and a warm butcher block countertop, this kitchen feels so restaurant chic! Try KM4830 Tree Pose for kitchen cabinets to give your home a spacious zenful feeling.

KM4809  Sea Pine

For a bedroom as swoon worthy as this one by Interior Designer Lauren Martin Moro, start with a gorgeous muted green like KM4809 Sea Pine. It reads warm neutral without screaming gray.

We talked with Lauren about her process in a previous article. Check it out  for her tips on bringing color into neutral spaces. 

Kelly-Moore Paints historic paint color HLS4251 Morris Leaf for vintage retro farm style bathrooms

When working with retro details like check floors and traditional white tiles, adding just a touch of color like historic hue, HLS4251 Morris Leaf, will give your room a timeless quality that's sure to stand the test of time.


When it comes to exteriors, we say 'Bring it!' with green to create harmony with trees, grasses, and hedges. And don't be afraid to throw in some flowers and other colorful plants to create wonderful contrast. It'll bump up curb appeal and get attention from your neighbors- in a good way!

As dining rooms and eating nooks continue to become more casual and cozy, soft cheerful green colors are perfect for gatherings and warm conversations. Consider minty soft green, a beautiful food color, that will look good with everything you serve up in this space.
