Ey up my faithful blogworms, this week we've all been to the seaside .... or rather ...it feels like it !
We don't often come across kitchen projects with a clear vision of setting a scene within the room, most people are still tuned into using earth colours and naturals, however, the coastal influence in our latest completed project is quite clear from the use of colour.
The coastal reference is quite ironic in a way as here we sit more or less equidistant between the West and East coasts in our wonderful land.
I think you could be forgiven for expecting to see the sea outside the kitchen window !!
When we are talking to people about colour etc, we usually say look at a couple of colours next to each other or groups of colours within the same area of a colour chart as these give good groupings for a palette that usually works in most rooms.
However, the colours used here are not only from two different charts but two different manufacturers !!
The "wow" factor when you walk is the room is quite staggering when you see the colours in the flesh.
This couples use of colour is, in my opinion, absolutely spot on for their individual style. What really nails it for me is that a lot of people steer clear of blues as being a 'cold colour' but I think this proves that when chosen carefully, blue can be a very comforting, easy to live with colour.
As we look a trends within our industry, if you take any real notice of such things !, it would appear that this sort of scheme is set to become where furniture is going in the very near future. So it appears that this couple are ahead of the game whether they knew it or not.
We loved this so much, we're working on creating a version of this scheme in our Eco2 range to slot into our Eco stable of kitchens and, of course, as a lot of you know we can supply kitchens all over the country. You never know, we might even get a coastal style kitchen in a home on the coast .... a sort of "ECOast .... groan ! I can't believe I just said that !
Stay tuned Eco fans for future developments.
