My husband and I we turned to a consultant and decorating expert for advice on kitchen colours to create a perfect scheme for our home. At the beginning, we had very different ideas about paint colours before start building our new house, indeed. Our kitchen designer and colour consultant suggested trying dusty shades of blue and lavender for our kitchen, as well as rosy browns or fresh greens, ensuring more pizzazz than earth-toned neutrals paint colours that people commonly use. These colours can represent a good alternative option for you too. In any case, I personally think that browns generally work better than greens.
