How blue became the colour of choice for all the coolest kitchens
Blue, in all its various guises, has been making its mark on the kitchen and Mark Taylor Design has been leading this trend.
With the huge variety of hues to choose from, blue works incredibly well in classic and more modern homes, either as an accent or as a statement base colour. Mark Taylor explains: “People are becoming more adventurous with their kitchen design as they look to inject more personality into their home, which has led to clients embracing darker colours such as blue in the kitchen.”
The beautiful kitchen is painted in Little Greene’s Basalt, a rich, dark shade that enhances the classic styling of the in-frame furniture. “Darker colours can create a warm atmosphere in a kitchen, both in the daytime and once the sun has gone down,” continues Mark.
Ensuring that a colour doesn’t overpower the room and works harmoniously with other elements is key and is something that Mark Taylor Design’s experienced team excels at. “Light coloured worktops in materials such as Calacatta marble can provide a striking contrast against deeper, darker blues and can help to keep a space feeling light,” advises Mark. “Alternatively, a pale blue kitchen with a light marble work surface can feel cold, so introducing warm materials, such as brass or copper, into a design can bring a real sense of luxury and warmth to a space.”
