Green is the color of Spring and, especially in our neck of the woods, people get positively giddy when the snow melts and the buds come out. Birds are singing, folks open their windows, and it seems that everyone is driving around playing music with their sunroofs open.
Here are a few color stories based upon four new greens that have been added to the Medallion Cabinetry and Platinum cabinet series: Bay Leaf, Aloe, Eucalyptus and Cypress.
Feels right at home as a kitchen cabinet color and in your favorite stew. Bay Leaf is a culinary color blended form green, yellow, and tan. It adds a bit of color palette interest when paired with a Traditional, Modern Arts & Crafts Transitional, or Modern design, which means it can fit just about anywhere.
Bay Leaf is also a way to bring some of the outdoors into your kitchen and accentuates the color green, leafy vegetables and cut avocados.
Here is a Bay Lead-centric color story curated by Suzanne DeRusha of Medallion Cabinetry. You’ll note that Bay Leaf pairs nicely with both traditional warm browns/cherry and transitional cool grays.
Another color that is natural in the kitchen, aloe is a tone reminiscent of mint with a 50’s feel.
You’ll see in the following color stories how Aloe pairs well with both warm and cool colors. This makes it possible to use it to visually anchor kitchens with four or more colors. Don’t forget: you can bring the related color story tones into your kitchen via countertops, backsplash, flooring, fixtures, appliances, accessories, or statement seating.
A bit darker with more green and black than Aloe, a kitchen design based upon either of the Eucalyptus color stories are simultaneously visually interesting and calming.
Here is an example of a Eucalyptus-themed kitchen that Medallion Cabinetry created for the most recent Kitchen & Bath Industry Show:
This color reminds us of the trees that grow along the Monterey Peninsula in Central California. A bit darker than Eucalyptus, Cypress holds its own with the darkest of stains available from Medallion Cabinetry. These color stories will really jazz-up a kitchen design utilizing white of off-white countertops and wall colors.
