• Country Days: modern rustic kitchen

    by  • 19/11/2013 • Country style • 1 Comment

    Winter days make us gravitate towards darker, cosier colours, and deeper shades can work especially well in a country kitchen.  Denim and indigo blues, for instance, provide a contemporary alternative to the traditional pastel blue often used in Shaker kitchens.

    Darker blues are particularly effective in a light and bright room, especially one that comprises natural materials such as exposed stonework walls and rustic wood floors and beams, like this barn conversion.

    For a modern twist, interest can be created with a two-tone scheme. This country kitchen, the Kensington Painted Kitchen by John Lewis, features mid blue on the units and a deeper blue on the island and glazed larder unit, emphasising the different zones. Quirky details include the tapered mantle unit and tapered end panels, while oversized industrial lights (aren’t they just fab?) add the perfect finishing touch.

    The Kensington Painted Kitchen in Denim and Midnight is available in 25 colours and prices start at £15,000 units only, from John Lewis

      This is a stunning kitchen. Blue is definitely in at the moment, but like the above, I lean towards light and bright and using the darker tones as a highlight/contrasting colour, rather than the main colour which can be a bit dark. Painted wooden furniture is a great way of adding colour in a moderated way :O)
