Here at My Interior Design School, we love the latest interior design trend for colour in the home.
Especially bold colours.
And where best to see the latest trend?
In kitchens. Where strong statement colours, especially yellow and black kitchens are having their day.
Home owners seem to be moving away from the safer, monochrome colour palettes and instead embracing bold colours in their kitchens. From the darkest navy and even black.
Secrets to Successful Kitchen Styling
What should you consider when introducing a new, bold colour into your kitchen?
Our Design Director, Rachael Kilby-Tyre (BIID) advises keeping the kitchen cupboards simple.
“Try and use cupboard doors with a flush, handle-free design or simple, contemporary handles”.
“Use plain work tops too”, she says “so the design feature is the colour of your cabinets”.
Not able to change your units, but you still want colour?
“Add some accessories, like these fabulous burnt orange-coloured stools” advises Rachael.
“Here, they give an instant pop of colour against the navy and are an easy and cost-effective way to add colour to your kitchen”.
Whatever colour you choose, a colourful kitchen will add personality and drama into your home.
