Paris apartment goes bold with green kitchen

Is all-green the new all-white?

Minimalist kitchens are great and all, but have you seen what a little paint can do? French architecture studio Atelier Sagitta coated this Parisian kitchen in a bold emerald green, and we have to admit—it’s a much needed break from all white everything.

Home to an art director (surprise, surprise), the apartment centers around a small but efficient kitchen. The architects maximized the room’s space, with an inset stove top and a wall of green cabinetry that camouflages storage space and the dishwasher.

The designers cribbed the deep green hue from the original laminate used on the countertops pre tear-down. Set against birch wood countertops and shelving, the hue almost becomes a neutral—one that’s neither too boring or flashy.

Going full-on green isn’t a new trend, of course. You might remember that Pantone dubbed a leafy shade its 2017 color of the year as a symbolic nod to “new beginnings.” For what it’s worth, we’ve long extolled the virtues of the color. This kitchen is just more proof that green really is great.
