Blushing Pink

Pink is a phenomenon that we just can’t seem to get over in the interiors world! Throughout the years, we’ve gone from baby pinks to bright millennial pinks and just about everything in between, but it seems that 2018 is the year for blush, dusky pink. A beautiful dusky colour, with just the right amount of grey to create a soft, unfocused colour that immediately relaxes the mind.

It might seem like a colour that should be used in the bedroom or living room, rooms that are reserved for relaxing only. However, the kitchen is fast becoming this type of room, and is no longer just a small room for cooking in, meaning blush pink is perfect. A colour that works beautifully on its own, and also looks incredible with a combination of so many different colours. Adding black into the mix gives the pink an edge, whilst mixing pink within a white kitchen keeps the room beautifully fresh and adds a unique element. You don’t need to introduce a large amount of this colour, simply a small injection of pink will provide the lift that your room needs.

The Ideal Home Show Kitchens- A Sneak Peek!

If any of our readers have seen our social media pages, it’s likely that you’ll have seen that we have been asked to create two different kitchens for the show homes at the Ideal Home Show. An incredibly exciting project that has been an absolute whirlwind, as we’ve created two bespoke kitchens for the event in just a number of weeks!

These kitchens are created in the latest innovative range from our company- 80/20 Kitchens by Naked Kitchens. We wanted to share with you the progress of the kitchens and have gathered any photos we have into a short blog post, before the event starts on the 17th March.
As you can see the images are obviously not from a glossy magazine shoot like we would usually use, but these were taken from the fitting of the kitchens this week, and we just couldn’t wait to share them!

The Brancaster Marshes

The Brancaster Marshes Kitchen is one kitchen design that we have kept under wraps for a while now. Immediately after we released the design on our website, it was locked down for magazine features for many months in advance, and unfortunately have not been able to share it on our social media or blogs. But finally, we can share with you in detail one of our favourite ever kitchen designs, and we think you will love it just as much as we do!

2018 Kitchen Trends

With our round up of 2017 post, we let you know all of the trends we were loving for the kitchen in 2017, and so we thought it was only right that we share our prediction of kitchen trends for 2018. With January now over, there have been some clear paths set, making it much easier to see which trends are emerging, and which ones look set to stay!

METALS
The use of metal in the kitchen is something that we saw more and more of towards the end of 2017, but 2018 is set to see metals used in much more of a statement way. With beautiful darker colours being used in kitchens, brighter metals are being used alongside to provide beautiful accents throughout the room. Traditional metals such as gold and silver will always have a place in kitchen designs, but bolder metals like brass and copper are really pushing their way through. Copper in particular- a metal generally only seen in the kitchen in the form of saucepans- is being used to create incredible accessories, such as faucets and sinks, with a beautiful patina forming over time.
