For March, getting ready for Spring, it's all about working with yellows. We've seen lots of yellow in the shops and inspired by a recent trip to the shops we've pulled together some great yellow looks for every room in the house.
Every month we will bring you easy 'cheat sheets' on how to get the latest looks for your home. With tips and advice on how the professionals pull together those gorgeous looks you see in all the great home and lifestyle magazines.
Yellow is a GREAT accent colour for your kitchen. Now we wouldn't recommend buy yellow kitchen units, so the kitchen is perfect for adding yellow accent colours. Think flashes of yellow textiles, yellow fruit bowls or vases and even a yellow chair! Grey works so well with yellow and it's very on trend.
For this kitchen scheme, we would recommend picking your grey tones for your background colour, ie walls and ceilings. Try painting out your ceiling the same colour as your walls.
We've picked a burnt yellow for the kitchen and we have steered clear of acidic yellows, that's just a bit dated. Seeds is a great website to get inspiration, you can browse by colour and pick from endless palette options, so here's where to start, click here.
So let's talk lighting and furniture. Mixing yellow with whites and blacks. Use pendants for your task lighting, this pendant from Habitat is just perfect, black exterior and yellow interior. Think of also adding a floor lamp near your seating area. Don't be afraid of mixing and matching your chairs! We have lots to choose from, check out some kitchen furniture
Artwork! Don't forget to add some even in your kitchen. For this look, some great coloured or typographic framed prints would really work.
We ALWAYS recommend to add plants for every room, the bonus for the kitchen is you get to add wonderfully fragrant herbs. Add them to window sills, add them to the middle of your island and dining table centre piece.
If you just don't have time but love the look, don't forget we can offer you very easy 'pay as you go' options to help you pull a look together. Check out our new design services here.
