The beautiful blush pink complements the white fittings and fixtures perfectly. It’s a light and summery kitchen with modern country vibes; a contemporary twist on a traditional style. 

The busy shelves and work surfaces create an almost maximalist feel to this space, showing it’s a well-loved kitchen.

These aqua cabinets add a pop of colour to contrast the neutral white walls, creating a colourful look that’s not overpowering. This bright, striking green gives this space a 50s feel without becoming too kitschy. 

This small space has bags of chic personality, proving that size doesn’t matter when designing your dream kitchen. 

Cooking up contrasting colours

Featured colour: Outdoor Escape

The painted deep teal cabinets clash with the bright orange oven* to draw attention to the lust-worthy statement oven. It creates a perfect contrast with the 'in-your-face' colour of the oven. If you want to try a bold colour scheme like this, look at the opposite colours on a colour wheel and experiment with tester pots.

*This beautiful oven is made in orange, not painted. Please note that our paints are not suitable for ovens.

Bright and fresh blues

Featured colour: Flannel Grey

This sleek and bright kitchen is like a breath of fresh air. The muted and soft blue walls combined with light oak flooring and worktops create a timeless and tasteful scheme. Despite the cool blue, the warm natural woods lift the kitchen into a cosy space you’d love to spend time in.

Featured colour: Night Swim

Our Night Swim blue contrasts beautifully with white tiles to create a sleek look reminiscent of dusky summer skies. The mason jars and natural materials refine and perfectly accessorise the room,  showing it’s easy to create a practical and stylish kitchen.

Modern rustic mustard

Featured colour: Trilling Meadowlark

This kitchen doesn’t follow any conventions and shows that your personal style should rule. The mustard yellow in contrast with the grey-blue cabinets, proves that above all be confident in your choices. This colour combination gives this room a light, airy feel, but the reclaimed splashback focuses the eye, adding an edge to the decor.

Boho natural paradise

Featured colour: Grazing Green 

Grazing Green makes for a classic shade for upcycling furniture, just like in this kitchen. The dark shade complements the lightly sage green cabinets and the theme is continued in accessories.  From the radio, kettle and even the blanket and plant, green is everywhere. It’s distinctly boho without veering into rustic, and the splash of orange helps to disrupt the pattern.

Featured colour: Wasabi Chocolate

This kitchen goes hard for a natural colour palette in a wonderful way. Wasabi Chocolate on the cabinets paired with light oak worktops and shelves gives a natural look. 

The black window, complementary accessories and fixtures are a great way to make the most of a feature you might not like. And the colourful art prints are a fantastic example of how simple accessories can tie it all together.

Pink and green pops

Featured colour: Dim Love

This kitchen oozes bold personal style. The pastel pink walls and complementary shades on the woodwork are a fantastic choice; there’s even pink grout between the tiles! Then the wine bottle green cabinets disrupt this theme, creating a striking look. 

However, it’s in the details where this kitchen really shines. Pops of gold on the light fixtures and cupboard handles help tie the two strong colours together.

Feature colour: Sweet genius

This is the epitome of personal style. Confident colour choices from the bright pistachio cupboards to the salmon-coloured walls are all tied together with the beautiful geometric tiles. Copper handles on the cabinets complement the muted colours of the rest of the room.
