Joanna Gaines shows us how to embrace the green kitchen trend

It’s easy to play it safe with kitchen cabinets, but queen of shiplap and green lover Joanna Gaines has shown you can totally make a color work. In a recent episode of Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, the interior designer gave her client a gorgeous green kitchen that fits seamlessly with her otherwise neutral home.

There are plenty of green kitchen ideas to inspire, from rich forest green and emerald tiles to barely-there shades of sage. Joanna Gaines, who once described a green, white and black palette as ‘the story of [her] life,’ shows us how to go green.

Joanna’s client, Kim, recently moved from California with her dog Hank to Waco, to work for Magnolia Network. Swapping her tiny beach apartment for a three-bedroom 1930s home, she wanted a light and bright scheme for her ‘cottage getaway’ home.
