Colours of the Month: Cool Hues for Solid Wood Kitchens

Posted by admin on July 8, 2015 at 8:53 am. Filed under: General

With the weather heating up outside, we thought we would take the temperature down a notch with this July’s ‘Colours of the Month’ by recommending a palette of cool hues from Farrow & Ball.

Plummett is a gorgeous dark slate grey that – whilst not as grey as Downpipe – is ideal for painting oak kitchen doors and drawer fronts in solid wood kitchens, and varies in tone from looking like a cool turquoise in warm daylight, to becoming gritty and industrial in cooler light. It works perfectly when coupled with a variety of timber worktop choices, looking particularly prominent alongside black American walnut worktops and other similarly luxurious dark wood species.

To complement the darker tones of Plummett, Sky Light is a fantastic alternative to reserved off-whites. More defined than Farrow & Ball’s Borrowed light – with tinctures of blue and pale grey depending on the available natural light – this subtle shade perfectly combines with the deeper colours in this palette to keep your kitchen feeling fresh.

Pitch Blue is an ideal mixture of rich blue that doesn’t feel overbearing, making it ideal to complement the other two hues in this month’s colour palette. Consider using it for a feature wall, or to decorate focal points in your kitchen such as the sides of a kitchen island, or cornices & pelmets around the top of wall-mounted cabinets.

Colours of the Month: Plummet
Colours of the Month: Skylight
Colours of the Month: Pitch Blue

If you think that this month’s colour palette would suit your new kitchen, then why not order a selection of our miniature painted cabinet door kitchen samples? You can then assess these colours within the natural light of your home. Each sample is a replica of a full-size oak cabinet frontal, and can be hand-finished in any Farrow & Ball colour of your choosing.
