Colour Palette: Colourful Rustic Kitchen Diner

colourful-kitchen-diner

The power of colour in a decorating scheme should never be underestimated because it really can completely change the dimension and feel of a room. This kitchen diner is a classic example of how you can layer colour into a scheme to soften the harder elements of the space. Imagine if you stripped out all the colour accents from this space. The result would be a room that feels vastly different because it would be dominated by the rustic textures that are heavily used throughout, such as the exposed brick wall, bare wooden furniture and factory-style pendant. The addition of the smooth and glossy blue and red hues seen in the chairs and cupboard doors provides visual contrast to these harder elements, which in turn brings balance to the overall scheme. This is just one of the many reasons why I think decorating with colour is so exciting: just a simple addition of brightly hued dining chairs can totally alter a scheme. Which elements of this kitchen do you like?

Love this kitchen! The pops of colours make it so bright and cheerful, I can imagine how different it would feel with more monochrome shades. It reminds me of Jamie Oliver, I can see him filming a show cooking in a kitchen like this.

@Gabrielle – You’re right, it does look very Jamie Oliver!

I do like the blue in this image Mr Bazaar, especially in the drawers & cupboards. But I favour the “harder elements” of the scheme. I actually think a darker, solid colour, floor would benefit the overall look.

I like the bright colours. Love the effect it has when you add colour. I’ve almost finished adding green details to my own kithcen and it’s changed so much.
Happy Weekend! hx

The kithchen looks wonderful! The small splashes of turquoise and red adds depth and interest.

I love the exposed brick and the vintage style art.
