The best weather of the season is almost upon us and – with May Bank Holiday on the horizon – a spot of DIY might be on the cards for many. Inspired by the fresh florals that are now beginning to emerge in gardens across the country, we have assembled our top three ‘Colours of the Month’ from acclaimed paint manufacturers, Farrow & Ball. With no further ado, here’s our perfect palette for sprucing up solid wood kitchens this month:
Using Cinder Rose for detailing on woodwork or feature walls is a brilliant way to embrace the blush of spring blossoms in oak kitchens. This shade is perfect for creating a soft and romantic look, and is the ideal complement for Vert de Terre. By removing much of the yellow pigment used in other shades of pink, Farrow & Ball have eliminated a ‘bubblegum’ hue and created a colour that is gentle and feminine.
Cool and fresh Vert de Terre is a fantastic colour for oak cabinets and panelling. Its botanical shade is easy-on-the-eye and perfect for solid wood kitchens. Just like Cinder Rose, Vert de Terre contains blue pigments, which is why the two paint colours marry together so well. Less intense than richer green shades like Olive or Calke Green, this is a tone that is pleasing to all and provides an undemanding background to your culinary adventures.
Echoing the warming rays of spring sunshine, Dayroom Yellow is refreshingly bright and is ideal for cheering up kitchens that get little natural light, and looks fantastic with clean whites such as Farrow & Ball’s All White. A splendid complement to a seasonal bouquet of daffodils, Dayroom Yellow ensures springtime freshness – all year round!
If you think these shades are the perfect choice for brightening up solid wood kitchens, why not order one of our painted oak cabinet frontal samples? Available in either a Shaker or Traditional style, this is a great way to experience the high quality and superior finish of our kitchen cupboard doors before committing to purchase. Even better, the cost of samples can be discounted from your order total. To discuss your kitchen requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0345 22 22 990, or email .
