Be bold and play with tradition and modern approach to design and space organization. Take a moment and enjoy the designing and decorating process fully, in all its details.
Country colors – make your kitchen bright and inviting
For example, just imagine a kitchen where the cabinetry is set rather low. The cupboards are of dusty pink color. They’re quite intensive and stand out. Thanks to cabinetry being low they don’t threat to totally overwhelm the kitchen, but with this shade you must really be careful. To stop the dusty pink cabinetry from dominating the kitchen choose highly polished granite worktop. Choose bright color and have the edges clearly cut and defined. This surface can truly reflect the light and make your kitchen bright and shiny. Bright worktop stands in contrast to mat dusty pink cabinets and dilutes cabinets powerful effect. Besides, dusty pink cabinetry seems like a traditional, warm and welcoming kitchen and highly polished clean cut granite worktop is rather on a modern side. As a result, we have an interesting combination of traditional and modern approach to design.
Finally, don’t forget about curtains. They as well can be of country colors. If you match curtain colors with cabinetry you can have a really nice effect. In this way you can strengthen the prominence of the main color but without going overboard. To keep it all balanced don’t forget to add a few decorations of paler colors. Good idea is to have a plywood framed clock on a table or a few plants in strategic places that can brighten up a little bit and stop the color feeling flat and dull. Enjoy the colors to the full.
