Kitchen Colour Palettes: Shades To Complement Copper

Posted by admin on May 24, 2017 at 9:17 am. Filed under: General

Copper has become hugely popular in a variety of interior design trends and is now an option available for a number of different fixtures, fittings and furnishings for every room of the house. This week we have devised a set of kitchen colour palettes that lend themselves particularly well to copper accessories and have compiled the following list featuring our favourite selections from our paint supplier of choice: Farrow & Ball. Copper has a versatile look that can be used to create a range of different styles, from the luxurious to the industrial.

Pastel Shades

Copper pairs perfectly with these pastel kitchen colour palettes

When looking for colours to pair with copper, pastel shades are some of the most favoured choices. The shades we have picked out above are; Calamine, Tunsgate Green and Calluna – perfect picks for a shabby chic kitchen, each colour works just as well together as they do on their own, and pair particularly well with light wood surfaces such as our maple worktops.

Jewel Tones

Jewel tones bring a touch of luxury to any home and make copper features look opulent

Deeper, jewel tones are a luxurious option to include in kitchen colour palettes alongside copper accents. These bold hues are ideally suited to a zebrano worktops, and as suggested in our recent kitchen colours for wooden worktops guide, the shades we have selected are; Pitch Blue, Vardo and Brinjal. Dark kitchen cabinets have been a popular choice during the first few months of 2017, and we think that any of these colours would work well on bespoke frontals with our stylish copper cup handles.

Monochrome

A monochrome colour scheme is great if you want to make the copper stand out more

Copper is a fantastic way to bring warmth to an otherwise neutral palette, and we think it works especially well in conjunction with a monochrome colour scheme. Pitch Black on the left side of the image and All White on the right are at the opposite ends of Farrow & Ball’s extensive colour spectrum; we have selected Mole’s Breath (middle) as it looks good with both cool and warm shades, and will work well with both stark neutrals as well as warm copper tones.

If you are in need of any more inspiration, we recently wrote about bringing white cabinets to life with colourful accessories, including the use of copper accessories. If you have used copper in your kitchen, we would love to see how you have incorporated it into your colour scheme – feel free to share a picture with us on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #SolidWoodKitchenCabinets.

Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets Sponsors Lucy Waine

Posted by admin on May 10, 2017 at 2:46 pm. Filed under: General

At Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets, the work we do to support our local community is incredibly important to us. Our founding director, Martyn Rees, has links with a local ballet school in Gloucestershire and through this relationship we have sponsored an up and coming ballerina, Lucy Waine. We caught up with Lucy during the Easter break to discuss some exciting news about her future at the Royal Ballet School.

Now aged just 16, Lucy began dancing over a decade ago with the Sally Prout School of Dancing, and was selected as one of twelve girls to attend the Royal Ballet Lower School at the age of eleven. Following years of hard work and training, Lucy has recently been successful in earning a place at the Royal Ballet Upper School. She will commute from the school residence in Pimlico to the school in Covent Garden, opposite the Royal Opera House, where Lucy says that “the hours will become much more intense”, but she is looking forward to doing “more advanced work”.

Here is Lucy Waine in our Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinet showroom in Gloucestershire

Whilst at the Royal Ballet Lower School, Lucy was selected to dance in a piece by Liam Scarlett, a world renowned choreographer with the company. Her progression to the upper school will afford a number of opportunities in the future, as graduates often go on to dance with the world’s leading dance companies. In the 3 years Lucy will spend at the upper school, she will also have the chance to be involved in productions with the Royal heritage groups and told us: “The school does a performance at the Opera House every summer, which is a really nice opportunity to be seen and get on stage.”

We would like to congratulate Lucy on her success in being awarded a place at the Royal Ballet Upper School and wish her all the success for the future. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter if you would like to stay up to date with Lucy’s progress!
