I had been thinking on the colour palette for a while and knew I of course wanted to include a duck egg blue and a grey, a pink but not too sugary and a darker shade to balance and give the palette depth. So after collecting my favourite coloured kitchen items, gathering threads, ribbons and any other inspiring pieces of colour I started to pull my ideas together. Next step I went through pages and pages of my pantone book and pulled out dozens of swatches, I laid them all out and started eliminating shades that weren’t quite right. I wanted all the colours to work well together and as stand out colours, once I narrowed the colours to around six shades I went to my local DIY store where I had the colours mixed into sample pots of pain, so I could paint large swatches of the colours to check they worked. The hardest shade to pin point was the pink, not to peachy, not to sugary, just enough grey to evoke a spirit of faded grandeur!
Eventually I chose the four colours and painted wooden kitchen spoon handles with them and ceramic apples to be 100% sure that they were the right colours for my brand…
A fresh and soothing colour palette of warm rustic wicker silver grey, sophisticated modern romantic shade of soft cloud pink, fresh powdery opal blue paired back with a co-ordinating deeper blue haze…
Harmonious shades, not only easy-on-the-eye but very on trend powdery pastels that are a great way to inject a little fun into the kitchen, especially when used as co-ordinating or contrasting finishes.
