Accent colour ideas for kitchens don’t come much better than the beautiful new Pure kitchen by John Lewis of Hungerford. I like how this colourful kitchen design uses a flash of lime green to make a stylish colour statement out of an existing design feature of the kitchen: the single green section amongst the white cabinetry creates an instant focal point for the eye. The harmonising quality of the green pairs well with the nod to organic texture in the wooden trim detailing; this design element also adds warmth to the green and white kitchen. Normally I’m not drawn to all white, super sleek and modern kitchen designs – I prefer a more rustic, lived-in approach with all my wares on display – but the clever use of colour and addition of exposed wood makes this space feel more homely, inviting and liveable than usual. I also think that the painted wooden floors help soften the look. What do you like about this kitchen design? How do you invite accent colour into your kitchen?

  1. A great idea adding the green accent colour. My kitchen is white but also love adding touches of colour on the worktop. The large frame window in my kitchen looking at a small garden takes the eye away from the stark white. Have a lovely day x
