Colours of the Month: Cool Pastels for Solid Wood Kitchens

Posted by admin on June 10, 2015 at 2:26 pm. Filed under: General

Creating stunning solid wood kitchens requires a number of components: kitchen base cabinets, oak kitchen doors and drawer fronts and some beautiful wooden worktops. As well as these key elements, it is important to add your own individuality to the kitchen in the form of a well thought-out selection of colours, which will age gracefully and complement natural wood furnishings.

This June we have put together a colour palette from Farrow & Ball that is sure to bring a cool pastel hue to any kitchen.

Forget magnolia: New White is simply the perfect off-white shade for imbuing light and life into a kitchen, and mixes well with almost any other colour – be it light or dark. It is more creamy than White Tie but not as yellow as Farrow’s Cream and is ideal for classic kitchens with a farmhouse feel.

Ammonite is an understated grey hue that pairs beautifully with New White or All White, without appearing cold or industrial. Unlike many greys, Ammonite has more warm qualities and is best used for accents alongside clean white shades.

Our third and final pick is Cord, a light sandy brown that contrasts beautifully with our other two ‘Colours of the Month’, whilst adding more strength of colour. It is the ideal earthy neutral – with hints of sage and cappuccino – and complements solid wood cabinet frontals beautifully, particularly when paired with oak furnishing or darker timbers like walnut.
