Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky
Keeps rainin’ all the time
The lyrics of the song quoted above – which was made famous by Billie Holliday – seem very apt for the UK in February 2014: we’ve seen plenty of storms and there are more forecast. Such dismal weather can make us a bit gloomy, and can also make going outside seem a bit of a chore – all the more reason to cheer up our insides!
And what better way to brighten up your interiors than with a fresh, spring-like kitchen colour? Farrow & Ball’s Parma Gray, a soft blue-grey reminiscent of duck eggshell, could be a perfect choice. Farrow & Ball describe the colour as timeless, taking inspiration from ‘1830’s and 1840’s schemes.’ Moreover, Farrow & Ball Marketing Director Sarah Cole comments that their key colours have been chosen to ‘create flow around the home, transforming the space into a nurturing refuge.’
Such a statement certainly applies to Parma Gray. This versatile shade complements the grain of our solid oak kitchen doors beautifully and breathes serenity into all solid wood kitchens – no matter what the colour scheme. Indeed, Parma Gray would work well as part of a grey colour scheme – set to be very popular in 2014 – or as the brightest shade within a palette of creams, cappuccinos and even chocolate brown.
