Raison De Meyer, a renowned French interior decorator loves the combination of blue and green. “Paint the walls a tasteful pistachio green and add a darker shade as trim on the cornices. Add dark blue cabinets and a dark green countertop in granite. White ceilings and floors add space.”
“Use white appliances like the refrigerator and the stove to balance the look. A bright chrome chimney and door knobs add depth. The backsplash can be a bright yellow to add a splash of warmth. The same yellow can be used in the floor mats and accessories to add warmth, as blue and green make for a very cool combination and need warm colours to complement them,” Raison added.
