9 pink and green kitchen ideas

Looking for a hot-right-now colour palette for the hub of the house? The pink and green kitchen trend has proved surprisingly enduring. Pink and green is a clever colour pairing that draws on both biophilic, nature-inspired design, and playful pink – a shade that ranges from vivid to blush shades as pale as plaster that have become one of the new neutrals.

So a pink and green kitchen scheme can range from bold and playful to something a little more Miami Beach retro-style, as well as a period-influenced scheme or something quite calming and nature-inspired. Good Homes magazine highlights a few inspiring examples to show you just how versatile and exciting this colour palette can be for a kitchen.

1. Retro pink and green

This feel-good pink and green kitchen from Dabito at Old Brand New features a monochrome geometric tile backsplash that bridges the vivid colour-blocking and complements the retro fridge-freezer and wall lights.

2. Subtle pink splashback

Floral designer Emma Morris’ kitchen, which was featured in the February 2019 issue of Good Homes, uses a flash of pale pink on the splashback to lift the subdued green cabinetry, giving the space a spring-like quality that certainly seems to suit the owner’s profession.

3. Miami vibes

This creative, contemporary kitchen design from the John Lewis of Hungerford Rise collection, belongs to interior designers Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead of 2LG Studio. In this scheme, a barely-there pink acts almost as a neutral for the intriguingly-shaped wall cabinetry, while a bespoke table brings an electric teal accent.

4. Pattern play

While blogger Emily Murray of The Pink House has a kitchen that’s full of character and style in her London home, it’s a space that could easily be toned down by future owners. The colour and pattern has been added through tiling, which could be replaced in future. Emily’s previous home in Edinburgh was also big on pink.

5. Classic green scheme

This subtly pink and green kitchen scheme, which uses deVOL‘s Classic English shaker-style kitchen cabinetry, has created an old-world charm with the mix of dark, regency green and a fun, vintage-style illustrated wallpaper.

6. Sorbet shades

This tri-colour space, another design from deVOL showcased at their St John’s Wood showroom, has the look of Neapolitan ice-cream. A darker, jewel tone green helps to ground the gelato-inspired colours and keep the pink and green kitchen scheme sophisticated.

7. Wonderful wallpaper

This fabulous green and pink kitchen scheme from Lucinda at @peacockfinds unites the green cabinets and the pink tile splashback with a boldly patterned wallpaper from Cole & Son in the same palette.

8. Forest green glam

Forest green is a deep, lush shade that can form the basis of a dramatic decor scheme. Here, the drama is amplified with a black marble splashback and worktop, but lifted with blush pink kitchen tiles to soften the scheme and preventing the whole thing looking too dark and heavy. Gold accessories add a touch of Art Deco glamour.

9. Playful pink and green

This bright and cheerful pink and green kitchen by Pluck combines functionality with fun. The playful turquoise shade, called The Lido from Earthborn Paints, is balanced with a pale salmon pink, giving off 80s Miami Beach vibes. The Corian worktop also has a very subtle sparkle to it.
