The kitchen is a place where you spend a lot of time, so make it a space in which you will feel good and that will inspire you.
It is also a room where you can experiment with vivid colours and interesting designs - both on the walls and furniture.
Bold colours will add warmth, dynamics, and energy to an arrangement and delicate pastels will complete the stark space.
Pixers, a company that makes vinyl stickers and wall murals (which are available in Australia), has prepared several ideas. The stickers are easy to apply (and remove!).
Yellow, lemon, honey-coloured: Yellow is a colour that is taking the world by storm and replacing pink, which has been fashionable for several years. Generation Z considers it their favourite colour, that screams "look at me." Yellow is bold and vivid. When you use it on a larger surface, e.g. walls, cabinet doors or kitchen countertops, the kitchen will become bright and optimistic. If you don’t want to introduce too much yellow into your kitchen, select a few elements – niche, cabinet, table, and wrap them with lemon-coloured stickers.
Ultra Violet, or violet with a touch of blue: Ultra Violet is the colour of the year 2018, announced by global colour specialists the Pantone Institute. Violet is mysterious, mystical and spiritual. It gives the space an artistic and creative character. As it is a strong and definite colour, it is good to use on smaller spaces - a wall that is naturally illuminated, or several kitchen cabinet doors.
Oriental blue: Blue is a cool, calm and attenuates colour. If vivid colours are not your favourite, choose blue, turquoise or cobalt to create a calm space in your kitchen. You can use very light shades on one of the walls to enlarge the room or use darker blue variants on kitchen furniture elements to cool a room with lots of sun.
Pastel pink: Pink is a fresh and joyful colour, most often associated with girlishness. In rooms, it can be used as a complement to stark gray, very trendy in recent years. It also blends well with wood and the color white. Small amounts of this colour will bring a touch of fun and sweetness to our kitchen. It's also a good color for those of you who are ready for delicate changes in the appearance of your kitchen and are afraid to experiment with bold colours.
Green mint: Green is a soothing colour of nature – of grass, leaves, herbs, vegetables, and fruits. Bright and brisk shades, such as lime or peas, will give the kitchen an energetic and cheerful atmosphere. In turn, lighter and more subdued colours, like mint or olive, bring peace and work well on larger surfaces. Green is a safe colour for the kitchen space, it complements white colour, wooden or steel elements. It also goes well with fresh herbs kept in pots on the kitchen windowsill.
