Colour My Kitchen
A quick scan of online trend forecasts the end of the all-white kitchen craze. It’s about time we embraced colour in the kitchen. See how some style-savvy Singaporeans are doing it.
Pops of Primary Colours
White is a wonderful canvas for pops of bright blue, red and yellow. For a crisp, clean look that is quirky not clinical, start with white, isolate a cabinet or two and clad them in different colours of bright glossy laminate. Add coordinated accents with bar stools, light fittings and small kitchen appliances.
Rad Red Retro
Passionate, playful and attention-seeking, red is a universally popular colour in the kitchen and the go-to hue for fast food restaurants. Why not build a kitchen around an iconic retro red fridge, complete with curved corners and chrome handles?
Somewhat surprisingly, since blue is among the least common naturally occurring colours in food, there is a blue kitchen micro-trend emerging. From navy blue to moody teal blues to cheerful aqua, blue is popping up in kitchens all over the little red dot. Denim apron optional.
Eat Your Greens
Imagine serenely peeling and prepping your greens for a plant-based feast in this cheerful kitchen, which has been enlivened with the bold choice of grass-green interior paint. The cuckoo clock and colonial-inspired lamps add a touch of tradition to an otherwise modern kitchen. Pretty fresh indeed.
The ‘in’ colour of the 70s, orange is back again. Orange is both toasty-warm and citrus-fresh – a great colour for a kitchen. Add high-contrast black for a dash of sophistication.
Some Things Should Be Black and White…
There is no room for shades of grey in a contract with an interior design firm, for instance.
