Following my story about when Avocado was introduced as a color on major kitchen appliances, here’s a look at how some readers have used Avocado in their kitchens — along with a reminder about where to find this color (in one version) in my go-to paint color collection. Above: Wendy’s kitchen, from American Beauties: 25 vintage stoves and refrigerators from readers’ kitchens.
Avocado paint color from Sherwin-Williams’ classic mid century paint color palette
Above: The Sherwin-Williams Avocado is a dark avocado — like the ripened skin. I used it in my office once, before my krazee remodel. I found it to be a very cozy color.
Avocado in readers’ kitchens:

Above: The house that gobsmacked the Vintage Las Vegas historic home tour.
Above, full-on avocado!: Addams Family meets Dick Van Dyke: Nanette, Brian and their three dogs’ long journey to their 1952 house.
Above: Jon and Trixi used Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations to paint their base cabinets avocado. I don’t think this is a a color choice that Rust-o expected!
All hail, mighty Avocado!
