Anyone used a lovely green for a darkish kitchen?

I like the Olive shades but show up grey.

I dont want a zest nor a fresh apple.

Seen a few nice shades which are fresh but woundered if anyone has recently used one?

The bluey-greens look nice in my dark kitchen [which is actually much lighter now with painted units].F&B blue green ,Teresas Green and Dix blue are all good.I have just painted some units with Light Blue which looks green or blue depending on the light.

F&B Cooking Apple is a gorgeous colour IMO - a bit sludgy but won't look grey, tho of course it does depend on the light ( or lack of ) in your room.

used Folly Green for kitchen cabinets years ago. This is like a darker version of cooking apple.
I like Arsenic, think the strength of the colour would look good in a dark space, but depends if you could live with it.

We recently went for Crown's 'crochet' on the walls in our kitchen- kind of an olivey/ putty shade which has been commented very favourably upon. We have cream units which help to lighten the area as it is quite dark. It really does not look cold or grey and much cheaper than F&B

How about Little Greene's "Kitchen Green" or "Olive Oil"?
