There is no denying that those born in the mid-1990s are a trendy bunch – so trendy, in fact, that they have a colour named after themselves. Gen Z yellow is the hot new colour that is on everyone’s lips. It is bright, happy and set to take next spring and summer by storm. With that in mind, here are our top three Generation Z yellow shades that we think are perfect for kitchens.
Named after the leather slippers worn by Moroccan men, Farrow & Ball’s Babouche is an exotic colour and a perfect example of Gen Z yellow. It has a distinctive cheerfulness that will bring a bright intensity to large kitchens and is dignified enough never to be garish. Babouche can be paired well with any shade of grey, for example, our Grey Sparkle laminate worktops.
There are no prizes for guessing where this popular Farrow & Ball colour gets its name. Citron is not as intense as Babouche, instead it is a warm Mediterranean yellow which can be used in smaller, more dimly lit spaces without being overpowering. Combining rich colours such as red or blue helps to give this Generation Z yellow a beautiful harmony.
This shade of yellow is extremely versatile and can be used equally well in well or poorly lit kitchens alike. This makes it timeless and invaluable for both large and small spaces. Yellow Ground has the perfect balance between freshness and richness, again proving its adaptability. By pairing it with dark coloured worktops, like our Lunar Night worktop you can easily create a sophisticated kitchen.
Examples of Gen Z Yellow in Kitchens
Using yellow in moderation is a great design method because adding a splash of colour to a primarily dark room helps to emphasise bright tones and shades. This Smeg fridge showcases exactly how this works.
These three yellow kitchen jars have a retro design. Adding accessories like these around your kitchen is a great way to introduce colour and proves perfectly that you do not need a large budget to brighten up your kitchen.
