Interior / June 22, 2018 /
Kitchens are busy places, both practically and visually, so when designing one for real life, not just Instagram, try to inject colour in places it can easily be changed up when the mood takes me. These neon yellow handles are laminate pieces cut to size then sprayed with car paint and glued in. Experimenting is a great way to find what works for you and this is an easy and inexpensive way of doing so. Another big colour trend kitchens is metal. Distressed metal, such as these old copper saucepans will make a new kitchen look less sterile and give the space a unique, luxurious feel. Combine with a copper sink and tap and your space is instantly updated.
The textural elements of a room often get over looked. Interior designers are schooled and excel at this textural design secret, a neutral backdrop creates a welcoming interior when mixed with warm textures such as rough hewn wooden elements, shiny tiles, nubby linens, and brushed velvets. If walls are painted in a bright orange, for example, then the bold color takes center-stage, making any textural elements disappear into the backdrop. This is not necessarily a bad thing, when done properly, but it can make a room feel unwelcoming by omitting a layered, textural design.
