Blue the hue for kitchens

-

Calm, comforting palettes are in vogue and the colour topping the trend is blue. Paint companies are catering to the craze by creating shades that range from deep ink through to soft grey. Dulux has released a range of soothing, nature-inspired colours dubbed Retreat, which includes the gorgeous dusty blues Winter Sea, Blue Balm and Five Fingers Peninsula.

Studio Quarters designer Theresa Chan, who used Porters Paints ‘Mariner’ in the kitchen pictured here, says the softness of these hues means we’ll love them for longer. “You won’t tire of them as you might if they were bright,” she says.
