When we got married, the kitchen I inherited was 70’s style orange & green, with paisley-patterned wallpaper and brightly-painted cupboard doors. John is a kitchen designer so we now have a lovely large neutral-coloured kitchen.
I have always said ‘orange is not my favourite colour’, but have to appreciate the occasional gift of orange flowers, or the appearance of orange in other contexts (monarch butterflies for example!) – it really is a vibrant beautiful colour.
While away from home the other weekend, we visited a Blum showroom. They manufacture a range of furniture hardware / fittings – for the uninitiated that includes cupboard and drawer hinges and inserts but is much more than that. They talk of dynamic space kitchen planning and perfecting motion, and the showroom had some impressive examples of pull-out and lifting systems, and inner dividing systems for drawers. Guess what their theme colour is?
We will return sometime to photograph the options for John’s kitchen clients, but meanwhile I couldn’t resist these …
