Two Pair Photography
It's all about color in the kitchen right now, and this one in Abilene, Texas, is as saturated as they come. Catering to the homeowner's funky, cool tastes, designer Rebecca Gibbs went all in with a green palette built around emerald tiles. "I didn't want the space to be overly bright. I wanted it to feel cozy and warm," she says. She chose a soft sage for the cupboards, which coordinates with the tile's grout, and wood floors and marble counters to balance out the green.
An all-green room might be a bit much. Mixing in neutral elements, like cream bar stools and wooden shelves, prevents color fatigue.
Set in Stone
The backsplash above the stove, made of the same Carrara marble used for the countertops, breaks up the dark tiling, which otherwise could feel heavy.

The Perfect Paint
After collecting dozens of sage green paint swatches, it can be hard to finally pick a paint. To avoid decision fatigue, grab a sample of Sherwin-Williams' Burma Jade, a mid-tone color that pairs well with off-white moldings.
An interlocking pattern of stars and crosses adds geometric interest to the room. The deep evergreen color of the tiles lends depth yet stays on palette.
In a room filled with so much green, flashes of gold—the wall sconces, drawer pulls—become standout features.
