The accent colour is as popular as ever and here yellow comes into its own, particularly against darker greys. A great approach is to go for a base colour then use an accent shade to highlight areas or to add a vibrant splash. When choosing an accent colour or a mixed palette, you can’t go wrong by following colour theory. Complementary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel and will create a strong contrast with a vibrant feel, while colours that are near each other on the wheel will give your scheme a more relaxed vibe.
Say it with flowers, create a feature wall with a pretty floral artwork. Alternatively, you could get the look with a stencil painted directly onto the wall, or wall stickers, which are easy to remove and place somewhere else at a later date. Whichever way you choose to add interest, this image shows that one small piece can have a really big impact on your kitchen scheme. Red and white stools bring the look together.
When it came to the kitchen layout, the owners moved the cooking zone against the wall. They also decided to start with high units, moving lower with the peninsula, dining table and sofa, for a pleasing sight line. Building a small side return extension has added width to the space and four Velux windows in this newer part of the building, plus sliding glass doors, allow the light to flood in.
