Does you kitchen look a bit dated? There are many clever ways to update it on a budget, and save the big money for your summer holiday. So if you are looking for a cheerful touch to update your cooking space for the outdoor season, have a look here.
1 MAKE IT MONOCHROME
Whether you are looking for a subdued alternative to your floral crockery, or want to make a statement with your tableware palette, black and white never go out of style. Strong, sophisticated, timeless; never be afraid to introduce this proven style recipe into your kitchen. Grey is also fantastically versatile, when in doubt. Offset this classic colour combination with a touch of warm metallic accessories, pretty utensils and colourful kitchen textiles.
2 PASTEL PALETTE
Summer is for idle afternoons and evening entertaining. Don’t neglect the daily essentials, such as glasses, jugs and serveware. Ditch the mismatched mugs, have a little a cupboard clearout and invest in some double-duty kitchewares in delightful, invigorating colours.
3 RUSTIC AND NATURAL
It's the season to take it outside, and nothing is more satisfying that a bit of al fresco dining. Or having a picnic on the beach. We love the organic, earthy tones of a natural palette, the calm comfort of a rustic kitchen and from-oven-to-table enamel wares.
4 MESMERISING METALLICS
Silver and steel have been kitchen staples for a while now, but it's time to update your cooking space with warmer metals like gold and copper, which make wonderful accents to most kitchen styles, but sit particularly well alongside muted and monochrome palettes.
5 COASTAL COOL
Nothing says seaside summer sophistication than a marvellously moody marine palette. Cosy and cool, it ranges from seafoam white to seagreen and beautiful blues. Shop our coastal selection for an instant seaside resort feel.
6 BOTANICAL BEAUTIES
Once you've got your irresistible utensils, it's time to add a little living green to your kitchen. Add a touch of invigorating botanical prints and containers that will bring the outside in.
