3 Recipes for a Stylish Kitchen

Written on 24th September 2020

Like any chef worth their salt, we know that a recipe is only ever as good as its ingredients. Luckily, when it comes to creating delectable combos for kitchen cabinets and walls, we’ve got that part well and truly covered. Our Modern range, made up of washable and wipeable Modern Emulsion and our ultra-tough Modern Eggshell, is packed with strong binders and responsibly sourced pigments in an eco-friendly water base, giving you our full range of colours in kitchen-friendly finishes that are made to last.

Setting Plaster, Down Pipe and School House White

In this stunning high-contrast kitchen, the Down Pipe utility room, just glimpsed through glass-paned doors, mirrors the colour of the dark kitchen worktops. It’s a masterclass in creating flow, offering two rooms with their own distinct personalities, but which work together effortlessly when the doors are left open. In the rest of the kitchen, woodwork in soft Setting Plaster and walls in School House White create an airy feel with just a touch of playfulness from the cabinets’ rosy hue.

Duck Green and Pink Ground

Our affection for pink and green rooms shows no signs of waning – feast your eyes on this Pink Ground and Duck Green kitchen, and you’re sure to see why. In having its lower cabinets and island painted in the deeper, richer tone of the two, with the more delicate shade reserved for the walls, this kitchen feels both grounded and expansive. This is a great tip whichever colours you choose, but we particularly like this characterful combination, which sets the scene for family time and entertaining as well as cooking.

De Nimes and Railings

This luxurious-feeling tonal kitchen takes two shades from the same colour family to create a cohesive look. Walls in grey-blue De Nimes with painted cabinets and shelves in Railings, an off-black with a generous helping of blue, are an effortlessly stylish pair. Alongside these intensely rich and pigmented shades, a clean white marble worktop and splashback add contrast and lift the scheme, without detracting from the drama.

Discover Modern Emulsion

Modern Emulsion is our super tough finish for interior walls and ceilings. Washable, scuff-proof, and protected against mould, it’s suitable for use in every room in the home, from busy hallways to moisture-prone kitchens and bathrooms, while offering our full range of colours in a beautiful matt finish.
