Blue is still trending in interior design this season, no one could have missed Kate Moss' much talked about stunning grey-blue bathroom this month or not fallen across colomns from journalists such as the Evening Standard's Att Pynta, encoraging London to jump into the blue. Kitchen design is no different, with every shade of blue telling a distinct design story, we have been looking at why this cool hues has been so popular with our clients recently.
This traditional style kitchen cabinetry is painted in Little Greene ‘Bone China Blue’ subtly used in both the light and mid tones, to better display the various depths and details throughout this very English country inspired kitchen.
So why blue? "Instead of jumping on the white cabinetry trend, why not opt for statement-making blue cabinetry? I love how the kitchen manages to feel simultaneously fresh and bright thanks [in part] to the sleek white countertops." says Will Taylor of interiors blog Bright Bazaar. "White has often been used to create space and light in interiors, opting for a colour scheme of uplifting blues has a similar effect creating a large and airy space however avoiding the room becoming too stark."
Brass accents are a match made in heaven with blue cabinetry, in this case in the form of the handles adding a sense of sophistication and balance against the soft blue hues of the scheme. Finishes also include ‘Venaro White’ Corian worktops and splash back with soft sweeps of marble effect throughout and natural stone floor tiles. A Falcon range cooker and Perrin & Rowe single Belfast sink with traditional deck mounted bridge tap and rinse, built to withstand the traffic of a busy family home and entertaining. The effect is a timeless elegance in keeping with the rest of this beautiful period Georgian property.
