Question Good accent color for green?

My kitchen is half white wood panels up to the chair rail, then green from there up, the baseboarding, trim and crown molding are all white and very large.

We have some chrome accents in the kitchen and all brushed nickel light fixtures.

We settle on this pretty olive green and some green faux silk placements. Now, it's time to buy new dishes, kitchen towels, and curtains and we just CANNOT agree on an accent color.

I thought zebra patterned dishes would be awesome, but the hubby didn't go for it, haha.

So I first came up with brown or beige as an accent color and hubby vetoed it because there are already too many rooms in the house that are brown and blue (one of my favorite color combinations)... so somebody help me out with a good accent color for green!

I love the combination of green and pink. Or maybe I'm just weird.

I like green and pink too! But... unfortunately, it needs to be friendly for the hubby.

Number one question! What colors does your husband like? It sounds like he has a say in this also, therefore, list the colors he likes, along with the hue and then I think we all can give you some good suggestions. Remember men and women have different color perceptions.
