Color Trends that Can Make a Dream Kitchen

Maison & Object is an international trade fair recently held in Paris that introduces the latest furnishings, accessories, textiles and tableware and often serves as a harbinger of styles, colors and textures that will find their way into new kitchens created for homeowners in South Shore, MA.

Green, purples, orange, beige, mauve and ocher were featured in new wallpapers introduced in Paris. Wallpaper is making a major comeback among interior designers and is likely to find a home in future kitchens for homeowners in South Shore, MA. It does not surprise us that green was another trending color in Paris as it has increased in popularity in kitchen design.  Green cabinetry and tones in a new kitchen serve to bring a feeling of nature and the outdoors into the home.  Green also is easy to match with other finishes and fixtures, providing the flexibility that most homeowners in South Shore, MA treasure.

Color blocking was another inspiring trend in Paris. Color blocking is the result of paring two or three totally different colors together to make a bold statement. Color blocking is easy to incorporate into a kitchen by contrasting cabinet colors and finishes with countertops and wall finishes. Many homeowners in South Shore, MA are attracted to color blocking pallets because it can make a kitchen appear taller if a lighter color is used on cabinets. Pops of contrasting colors also can create focal points when used on an island. Contrasting colors also serve to soften and warm white kitchen cabinets.

Use of bolder tones also found a welcomed place in Paris, reflecting a need to brighten spaces. Yellow can be used to bring in lots of light without overpowering a space. Bright orange, brick and burgundy also found their way into furniture, textiles and color schemes.

Light pink tones, beiges and blue also were popular colors. We have seen an increased demand to use contrasting colors by homeowners in South Shore, MA not only to help make unique and personal design statements, but to also bring a sense of excitement and energy to a new kitchen or bath.
