Colour In Kitchens...Why Not!

Add a large piece or wall art into your kitchen / dining space and extract the colours from this to get your inspiration - then accessorize with the accent hues!
Taking the warm wood grain orange from this timber veneer into the rest of the kitchen makes for a stunning complimentary wall colour & accented accessories.

Shots of high chroma colour can make a White kitchen fun again... especially when you add the bunting element! You can make bunting from cutting triangles of your off cuts of your sewing fabric, cheap remnants and attach to ribbon, webbing tape or bis binding, or cheat & by it through decor places such as the UK's 'The Cotton Bunting Company' or Etsy online.
A Chalkboard wall for all your messages, shopping lists and to-do's - smartly teamed with white & cherry red for a sophisticated industrial look. Chalkboard paint can be readily bought from your local hardware store [in Australia - Bunnings or Mitre 10] or paint stores [Porter's Paints etc]

Striking - tipping normal the balance from all white kitchens to majority black charcoal with white & citrus yellow.

Injection of colour through Yellow decor accents against white
White & Neutral Natural Tones - simple fresh harmony.

Today's post is inspired by my lovely Verandah client, whom I am catching up with today to discuss her dining-lounge room window treatments & some colour options for her newly renovated kitchen splash back.... So for the past few weeks I have been digging deep into my image vault and researching open plan living spaces with plantation style shutters and blinds, and colour [usage] in kitchens & all things related. Here's a few I found that I you might like...so many hues to choose from - bold & bright to soft & feminine, don't forget that even with shades of white - natural & neutral hues can be blended to create a great palette!
