Add an ac­cent

EADT Suffolk - - Kitchens -

At Anglia Fac­tors in Martle­sham, owner Daniel Barr has no­ticed a trend to­wards strong ‘ac­cent’ colours in the kitchen. He be­lieves that cus­tomers who are opt­ing for be­spoke kitchens are coun­ter­bal­anc­ing tra­di­tional creams, whites and light wood or stone sur­faces with strong state­ment walls, fur­ni­ture, fab­rics or cup­boards. Daniel says: “The trend is un­doubt­edly en­cour­aged by paint man­u­fac­tur­ers like Far­row & Ball and My­lands Home­own­ers can have some fun with their projects and tem­per ‘clean’ lighter tones with splashes of bold colour. “Whereas the six­ties and seven­ties saw some pop art in­flu­ence in­te­rior de­sign, the nineties took it one stage fur­ther, with long-run­ning pop­u­lar US TV shows like Friends fea­tur­ing strik­ing teal blue kitchen units. “Cus­tomers are now em­brac­ing new shades and ma­te­ri­als such as strong turquoise glass splash­backs, pur­ple cup­boards or colour­ful is­lands. “Fi­nally don’t for­get black and white. We show here a strong mono­chrome kitchen with just hint of mauve – just as im­pact­ful as an ac­cent colour,” he says. Anglia Fac­tors 34 Gloster Road, Ip­swich IP5 3RD 01473 610192­gli­afac­
