Taking note from Jen Brake of @halfpaintedhouse epic built-in bookcase of bright fuchsia pink encompassing the door and bookshelves in this striking dining room feature. A statement piece painted in FTT-006™ Wood & Metal Eggshell against soft Threadneedle™ No.262 Marble Matt Emulsion walls.
When constructing cabinetry consider a combination of enclosed and open shelving in your kitchen design. Enabling the option to showcase beautiful kitchen ware whilst simultaneously tidying away other utensils. In the exquisite home of designer Laura Butler Madden @laurabutlermaden, subtle pale pink Kensington Rose™ No.22 Marble Matt walls come together with off white Holland Park™ No.5 Wood & Metal Matt cabinetry. An oasis of calm, these soothing light shades perfectly complement yet modernise the classic Georgian architecture of this stunning Townhouse based in bath.
If open shelving feels too exposed, wooden cabinetry with glass fronted cabinets work well too as an alternative. In this rustic free-flowing kitchen, dining and living area, complementary colours of similar tones can be used to great effect to clearly zone different areas. While the warm tones of Honest John™ No.58 for the walls and cooler off-white Charterhouse™ No.4 Marble Matt Emulsion for the ceilings cleverly unify the kitchen, dining room and living room, the large space is given definition with the sage green cabinetry of Greenstone™ No.190 Wood & Metal Matt. Desaturated tones can define an open-plan space and introduce colourful personality without overwhelming it.
Utilise space with head-to toe built-ins with a combination of shelves and hanging space, a ladder acts as a seamless solution for those hard-to-reach shelves as well as an interesting design focal point.
