Cream country kitchen with farmhouse table and spindle chairs. Why not opt for freestanding furniture instead of fitted kitchen units? Choose pieces such as a painted cream sideboard for storage, a dresser where you can display favourite china and glassware, and a large farmhouse table surrounded by spindle chairs for family meals. Fit shelves instead of wall cupboards for kilner jars, cookware and serving dishes - touches of copper, pink and stone bring this country kitchen scheme to life.
Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and scale. The trick is to surround pattern with something plain - except in the case of cushions. If you have bench seating, mix-and-match different designs for an informal feel. Take a look through our gallery to see which scheme’s the one for you!
Deep purples, colour blocking is a great technique for replicating the relaxed feel of freestanding furniture within the more practical, easy-to-clean reality of a fitted kitchen. In this colourful kitchen, Farrow & Ball’s rich Brinjal makes the fitted corner dresser appear like a separate piece – boosting its presence in the room. ‘Keeping the walls and ceiling pale will provide a blank canvas for the cabinetry and really lets the colours sing,’ adds Gillian McCollum, Director, Murray & Murray.
