The palette of neutrals we are using in kitchens has expanded as we look to bring warmer, earthier tones into our homes, adding personality while still remaining comfortable. In order to ground these schemes, introduce a strong colour like Studio Green on a central kitchen island which will make everything around it look bigger and lighter.
The preference for warm homely colours and natural green tones pertains mostly to schemes for whole rooms but can certainly translate to use on cabinetry – especially if you are wanting to create an informal atmosphere in your client's kitchen. Central islands or pantry cupboards are being painted in super strong tones like Preference Red or India Yellow while the surrounding units are kept neutral resulting in a nostalgic look much favoured at the moment. It is important to use Modern Emulsion which is made specifically to cope with condensation, and remember that taking the wall colour over the ceiling can often make the room feel bigger. Traditional colours like Treron on the woodwork or cabinetry and the slightly lighter French Gray on walls create rooms that somehow feel as if they have never changed.
