It may be chilly outside, but don’t let your kitchen feel the cold – after all, it is the heart of the home. This week on the blog we have picked some warming winter colours from Farrow & Ball to spice up oak kitchens and bring warmth back into your world.
Blackened is a cool, creamy white with a chalky hue that is the ideal background colour for accentuating brighter colours on oak kitchen doors and drawer fronts and festive Christmas decorations. This colour changes with light throughout the day, starting off with more of a blue tone and then becoming creamier when the sun is low in the sky.
The darkest red in Farrow & Ball’s range, Rectory Red, has a deep tincture reminiscent of mulled wine and is deeper in hue than Blazer – one of the colours in our ‘Strong Accents’ range. This bold colour is beautifully suited to accenting solid oak kitchen cornices and pelmets alongside lighter kitchen colours such as Blackened or Strong White.
Our final choice of festive colour is Calke Green – a confident yet earthy shade that is ideal for painting woodwork or a lovely feature wall in oak kitchens, when combined with paler greens and creams. What’s more, this shade would look stunning alongside Christmas wreaths and other natural festive décor at this time of the year.
If you think these colours would bring the spirit of Christmas into your solid oak kitchen, then why not give one of them a try by ordering one of our painted cabinet door kitchen samples? Our samples are a miniature replica of our full-size cabinet frontals, and can be hand-finished in any Farrow & Ball colour you wish.
