Howdy deTerrorinos!

I have thoroughly enjoyed soaking up some rays over the last couple of weeks – hopefully you have all been enjoying the glorious sunshine too! As the sun takes a short break and the skies become a little gloomier, I have been spending more time in my kitchen – which is, of course, my favourite place to be – but I am yearning for some more sun-filled days. Of course, in England, you can’t ever be sure of that kind of thing – so I’ve put together this colourful list of kitchen inspiration to make you feel splendiferously summery even when it is grey outside.

Farrow & Ball’s fantastically fiery Charlotte’s Locks is perfect for some summer kitchen inspiration

Charlotte’s Locks

This fiery orange is the perfect way to channel some serious heat into your kitchen. Cheery enough to brighten up even the greyest day, this home-warming hue reminds me a bit of some psychedelic shades from the 1970’s – groovy baby!

The green blue hues of Farrow & Ball’s Blue Ground look just like a crystal clear sea

Beautiful blue green turquoise is cooler than my last pick – so cool that it looks like you could plunge right in. This refreshing shade is the perfect summer hue, and has provided me with some fantastic kitchen inspiration this season. Combined with bright whites, this colour is a sensational seaside shade but – if that isn’t your kind of thing – it makes a real statement when used on a kitchen island.

Farrow & Ball’s Babouche is so bright, you might need sunglasses


I couldn’t do a list of kitchen inspiration for the summer without including a sunshine yellow. Babouche is so bright and cheerful, I can’t help smiling every time I look at it. Why wouldn’t you want those kinds of positive vibes in your kitchen? I might paint mine entirely in this far from mellow yellow, but if you want a more toned down look, it works well with soft greys.

So there ya have it, kitchen crew. I hope you’ve got some great kitchen inspiration from my colourful paint picks. Don’t forget that we do bespoke cabinet frontals, so if you see a colour you like, you could use it for the whole kitchen!

Ta ta for now,
