Moody blue

Living Etc - - DESIGN ⁄ PROJECT -

Dive in at the dark deep end with a rich blue to add drama and a feel­ing of cosi­ness into your kitchen. Don’t stress if the space is small or lacks nat­u­ral light – a dark colour can de­tract from its short­com­ings and fo­cus at­ten­tion on the fab­u­lous hue in­stead. equally, don’t spec­ify all-over blue if it feels like a big com­mit­ment. In­stead, re­strict it to walls or an is­land unit to cre­ate a con­trast with paler cab­i­nets. Blue sits beau­ti­fully with white and grey, so you’ll have plenty of op­tions.

Project de­tails Well-con­sid­ered de­sign de­ci­sions and skil­ful use of colour make this Vir­tu­oso kitchen by Mowlem & Co both prac­ti­cal and stylish. Time­less Shaker-style units are hand-painted in Far­row & ball’s Rail­ings eggshell, cre­at­ing a strik­ing con­trast to the su­per-luxe Car­rara gioia mar­ble splash­backs. lofty ceil­ings have al­lowed the de­signer to go large on stor­age, with ex­tra-height wall units fea­tur­ing glass rather than solid in­serts to make the space feel more airy. An in­dus­trial qual­ity is in­tro­duced via the Raw Con­crete Cae­sar­stone work­top and cho­co­late bronze me­tal han­dles that are re­cessed into the cabi­net doors. orig­i­nal btc’s Ti­tan pen­dant, £249, heal’s, makes for a fine fin­ish­ing touch. A sim­i­lar Mowlem & Co kitchen starts from around £35,000.

Project de­tails Walls take their cue from life Kitchens’ hart­forth blue Shaker-style cab­i­netry to zone this open-plan kitchen. A quartz work­top and splash­back slice through the blue, in­tro­duc­ing con­trast and the look of mar­ble without the as­so­ci­ated main­te­nance. A smat­ter­ing of brass adds glam­our – try Abode’s lud­low monobloc tap in An­tique bronze, £229,John lewis, to get this look. Kitchens from £25,000.
