Remember that paint isn’t the only way to apply colour in your kitchen. Wall and cabinet colours are the starting points, followed by your flooring, but the hardware, lighting, furniture and accessories – and any window treatments such as Roman blinds – you use are key to your palette. So, be sure to pick ones that are part of it, or at least a tonal extension of one of your key colours.
If you look back at Juliet’s Suffolk kitchen, she has a palette of grey-blue (from our Charcoal paint), brown (from the timber), white (from the walls) and brass (from the lighting and hardware). All of the other elements of her room come back to that palette, from the Matilda armchair in our Isla Kingfisher velvet, which is a tonal blend of grey-blue, to the Emma Mustard pattern on her cushion, which links with the brown and brass in the room.
