Pared-back aubergine, for a pretty kitchen with bags of country charm, turn to feminine shades such as soft aubergines and vintage rose. Don’t overdo it – a standout island unit will suffice. Pinks are from the warm side of the colour spectrum, so you can afford to introduce plenty of creamy background shades that will keep the décor on the sophisticated side of ‘girly’, and the overall look fresh.
A more open-plan version of the galley kitchen is to have a run of kitchen units along one wall with a kitchen island unit opposite. As with the L-shaped kitchen, the island unit can form a divide between the working kitchen space and the dining area or living area. If space allows, the non-work side of a kitchen island is a great place to include bar stool seating or open shelves to store cookery books.
Rustic cream kitchen with Aga and freestanding furniture. This rustic farmhouse kitchen is the perfect mix of old and new. Fitted cupboards flank a traditional range cooker, which is tucked into an alcove. Wooden beams and walls are painted ivory to keep the look as light as possible and a freestanding sideboard is a great storage alternative to wall cabinets. A butcher’s block-style table makes a great centerpiece and is practical for everyday use.
