The earth-inspired color green not only complements various shades of wood (think cabinetry and flooring), it's also a hue that can go from contemporary (think apple green) or retro (avocado) to farmhouse (creamy and distressed).

Green countertops, though not the most popular choice (that award goes to white, a favorite of kitchen designers and homeowners alike), are a great way to make a statement in the kitchen, but in a subtle way. Think green glass countertops, illuminated by LED lighting, or concrete counters set with an array of decorative recycled green glass for a sustainable "green" that also provides a one-of-a-kind appeal.

Tile countertops are another way to achieve a unique feel—use varying shades of green to create an interesting pattern or color variation that can go from countertop to backsplash.
