The seasons are changing – and so are the trends! As such, the Solid Wood Kitchen Cabinets team have turned their beady eyes to Pantone, the leading experts on colour. Every season these global colour specialists release their predictions for the hottest seasonal shades.
For autumn 2012, we’re seeing a move from cool pastels and fresh greens (Farrow & Ball’s Mizzle was top of the spring pick list) to stunning citruses, intense, earthy darks and some warmer pastels.
For cabinets, white is still leading the pack: designers continue to rave about the freedom it brings to a colour scheme, allowing the introduction of strong accents – particularly applicable this season – and clean lines. Rustic and industrial themes are also tipped to be popular; we advise pairing New White or White Tie cabinets with chocolate or cappuccino shades like Oxford Stone, London Clay or Tanner’s Brown.
Pantone tips tangerine as a signature shade for autumn, making it the perfect time to plump for a feature cabinet run – such as an island – with frontals painted in a bold shade like Charlotte’s Locks (available as part of our bespoke Farrow & Ball option). This dazzling splash of orange might not be for the fainthearted, but is sure to brighten up your kitchen as the nights grow long!
