Last year was all about navy, but expect to see more green in kitchens going forward. It could be in the form of accents, like this wallpaper – palm fronds and botanicals are to 2019 what florals were to the mid-Noughties.
However, it’s increasingly likely to take the form of tiles and cabinetry, in tones of emerald and forest green.
‘The trend for bold dark hues was prominent throughout 2018, and as we move in to 2019, green kitchen cabinetry is set to be a new, key style,’ says Hayley Simmons, Head of Merchandising for Magnet. ‘Green can be equally dramatic and luxurious when used in the kitchen, and new for 2019, Magnet has launched two debut Magnet Create finishes in varying hues of the contemporary colour: Green Olives and Forest Walk.’
‘Deep forest greens can be balanced out with latte shades, smoky glass and soft metallics to bring opulence to the kitchen. The addition of white marble and brass through design aspects like Kitchen lighting and worktops, or even kitchen accessories, help to bounce the light around the space and offset the heavier hues.’
