From the Emerald Isle

There's no reason to stay neutral when it comes to the use of colour in the kitchen. Surfaces in this kitchen feature several complementary shades, including Resene Moxie a bright shamrock green

Combining natural wood veneers with painted surfaces is one of the strongest trends in kitchen design. But this doesn't mean you have to work with neutral tones. As this project illustrates, a more adventurous approach can pay dividends.

Natural wood cabinets are paired with an island painted in Resene Moxie, a bright emerald green that brings a sporty, fresh look to interiors. Here it is paired with Resene Kookaburra and an adjacent wall in Resene Chocolate Lounge.

The kitchen shown above is painted in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen, which provides a durable finish suitable for broadwall and wet areas.
