Home – Colourful kitchen

Home – Colourful kitchen

Using rich hues with a real depth will make the kitchen feel warm, cosy and full of life.

Be confident with your bold choices – even if these shades are a bit out of your comfort zone. My decorating philosophy is it’s only a coat of paint – and if you get sick of it, just repaint.

I probably change my own walls at home at least once a year. Just a simple switch in the colour creates a whole new look and feel to the room, opening up further opportunities for moving furniture around. There’s nothing like giving your space a new life to leave you feeling refreshed.

Keep the accessories simple, yet bright. I just went to Plastercraft, got a plain wall mount and painted it a luscious red. This could be used as either a piece of art, or as a candle ledge to create a warm glow for a romantic dinner.
