If you’re keen to express your home’s personality and are ready to commit to a statement kitchen, there’s one colour combination that seems to be taking our cooking spaces by storm.
Pink and green is a clever colour pairing, as it lends itself in all kinds of directions. It could be used for a nature-inspired design, drawing on botanical and floral influences; something playful, bold and modern; somethign a little more retro, like this olive and blush kitchen scheme above; or even a period-influenced scheme.
We’ve collected some of our favourite examples to show you just how versatile and exciting this colour palette can be for a kitchen.

Floral designer Emma Morris’ kitchen, which was featured in the February 2019 issue of Good Homes, uses a flash of 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.

Belonging to Jordan and Rusell of 2LG Studio, this creative, contemporary kitchen design is from John Lewis of Hungerford‘s Rise collection. 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.

While blogger Emily Murray, of The Pink House, has a kitchen that’s full of character and style, it’s a space that could easily be toned down by future owners. The colou and pattern has been added through tiling, which could be replaced in future.
This kitchen scheme, which uses deVOL‘s Classic English shaker-style kitchen cabinetry, has created a old-world charm with the mix of dark, regency green and a fun, vintage-style illustrated wallpaper.
This 3-colour kitchen space, another design from deVOL showcased in the brand’s St John’s Wood showroom, has the look of Neopolitan ice-cream. A darker, jewel tone green helps to ground the gelato-inspired colours and keep the scheme sophisticated.
This fabulous kitchen scheme from Lucinda at @peacockfinds unites the combination of green cabinetry and pink tile oven splashback with an intricate wallpaper from Cole & Son in the same palette.
