Move over grey, dark emer­ald green is so hot right now! But choos­ing the right shade for cab­i­netry isn’t quite as easy as up­dat­ing your wardrobe. Give it plenty of thought be­fore de­cid­ing on a shade, as you’ll be liv­ing with it for the fore­see­able fu­ture.

There’s noth­ing bland about this kitchen. Go for broke and play up its tra­di­tional roots with brass lighting, hard­ware, power points and switch plates. Wire stools are a nod to modern styling.

Use a va­ri­ety of sur­faces to break up the green. Try a com­bi­na­tion of wood and beau­ti­fully veined mar­ble benches. Turn to a sta­ple for the splash­back – white sub­way tiles, laid in brick for­ma­tion.

Strong yet sooth­ing, a deep dark green will have you rolling up your sleeves and cook­ing up a storm. If emer­ald or for­est green doesn’t do it for you, go for a sub­tle grey-green.

What to colour your walls? Well, white is the ob­vi­ous answer. How­ever, the barest hint of mint will pro­vide the nec­es­sary con­trast to make this kitchen sing.
