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.
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.
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.
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.
