Lauren says greens are good on cabinets and counters but not on walls, and she suggests mauves, light blues, and aquas as accents. "You don’t want to keep much white except for appliances, which are best in silver, white, and other neutrals," she says. White is a static color, while blues and greens are harmonious and foster growth.
