There’s a funny feeling in the air this Spring; perhaps it’s to do with the unseasonable weather we’ve been having, or perhaps it’s simply time to shake things up a bit, but the usual pastels and cool shades that dominate are curiously absent from April’s interiors/fashion trends.
Instead, we’re being treated to the bright and bold: stunning neons, vital oranges, and vibrant shades of red – a fiery explosion of spring colour!
With such dramatic shades calling the shots this season, it can be hard to know where to start – do you take a risk and go for a whole host of colours, or simply make a splash with a stark contrast? A great option to consider is the inclusion of a feature island or bank of units in a statement colour such as Farrow & Ball’s Blazer, which is why we’ve nominated it for April’s ‘Colour of the Month’.
Blazer is a rich, eyecatching red – named for the striking blazers once worn by members of St John’s College, Cambridge – and is an excellent contrast to more subtle, off-white shades such as New White or Off White. Ramp it up even further with some Pitch Black painted accents or mellow out with an unpainted run of lacquered solid oak cabinet frontals, ensuring that the rosy red of your Blazer units shine out; however you choose to incorporate this colour, it is sure to add a unique radiance and sense of flair to your kitchen.
Whatever you decide, we’re on hand to help – simply select the ‘Blazer’ option from our handpainted doors page and you’ll be away!
