Emerald green subway tile have been en vogue for quite some time. Adding color to your back-splash creates dynamic visuals and clean surfaces. American-made kitchen furniture like The Urbanization Factory Utility Cart and the Industrial Factory Backless Stool is a great way to add to the industrialized flair in your kitchen. With their compact sizes, these pieces can travel with you as you move about your kitchen.
Pendant lighting with green finishes like porcelain Vintage Green and Patina help incorporate more of the hue into your Emerald kitchen. Pairing RLM style pendants like the Ivanhoe™ Sky Chief Warehouse Porcelain Pendants ensure that your workspace will have ample lighting! For a more diffused, softer look, try Barn Light Electric’s new Schoolhouse Patina Copper Stem Lights.
