Colours of the Month: Organic Shades for Oak Kitchens

Posted by admin on August 19, 2015 at 10:49 am. Filed under: General

At this time of the year the verdant fields of Britain’s countryside are in full-bloom and radiating with growth as summer’s warmth is topped up with regular doses of rain. This has certainly been the case this August, as it has been rather wet so far, but don’t let that dampen your spirits; this month we have a palette of organic Farrow & Ball colours to share with you, all of which are filled with natural warmth.

Colours of the Month: Light Blue
Colours of the Month: Lichen
Colours of the Month: Setting Plaster

Light Blue is not the most obvious blue in Farrow & Ball’s palette, instead appearing more silvery and closer to a cool stony grey or even green in some light. This peaceful and calming hue is a perfect shade for kitchen walls in bright kitchens, mixing equally well with either bright whites or darker accents such as wooden worktops.

A perfect green for oak kitchens, Farrow & Ball’s Lichen is ideal for creating a natural feel and is a sublime choice for painting oak kitchen doors and drawer fronts. It is slightly darker than the popular Vert De Terre, but has a lighter tone than Breakfast Room Green.

Lastly, Setting Plaster from Farrow & Ball is a more yellow version of magnolia with a comforting tone that also features elements of salmon pink. It is considered the ideal colour for walls in a north-facing kitchen as it is bright enough to reflect plenty of light into darker spaces, whilst retaining the warmth of natural light. It could also be used as the perfect complement for Lichen doors on wall cabinet details such as solid oak kitchen cornices & pelmets.

If you think August’s organic palette would suit your solid wood kitchen, give it a try by ordering a selection of our painted cabinet door kitchen samples. Each sample is hand-finished in the Farrow & Ball colour of your choosing and is a perfect replica of our full size cabinet frontals.

 

August’s Kitchen Gadget of the Month

Posted by admin on August 12, 2015 at 8:42 am. Filed under: General

We have been picking a unique kitchen ‘Gadget of the Month’ every month for a while now, and have featured some absolutely fantastic new technology for solid oak kitchens.

This August, we have turned our attention to the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer – truly the king of mixers and the pride and joy of any baker, whether professional or simply baking for pleasure.

With a powerful 300W motor and timeless sturdy design, this mixer combines an appealing aesthetic with high-quality craftsmanship that makes this mixer the ideal companion for baking bread, creating cakes, preparing pies or any other tasty treats.

An ample 4.8L bowl is perfect for creating large batches in one go, and makes it easy to work with a variety of ingredients whilst making less mess. There is also a transparent pouring shield that allows you to add further ingredients whilst the Artisan is mixing without any splashes.

Three different attachments allow you to use the Artisan mixer in a variety of different ways: the stainless steel wire whisk is perfect for beating eggs or creating fluffy creams and sauces; the non-stick dough hook takes all the hard work out of kneading dough for bread or pizza bases; and the Artisan Flat Beater is excellent for making cake mixtures and plenty more. All three of the attachments are dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.

10 powerful speed settings and a distinctive ‘planetary’ motion combine to ensure that mixing is thorough and fast – whatever you might be preparing.

If you fancy a fantastic KitchenAid mixer to complement your kitchen, then you will want to enter the #BrilliantBakeOffer competition on our Facebook page, which ends on September 5th. You could win this mixer, along with a whole host of other prizes worth £475 to help indulge your creativity or become a baker worthy of the Great British Bake Off. Full guidelines can be viewed on our competition terms and conditions page.
