Designing a space that just feels right takes planning, creativity and inspiration. Choosing a colour palette is the first step to creating a well-considered theme and ambiance. We’ve teamed up with Sherwin Williams to bring you some fresh and useful tips to help you get started. We’ll leave the planning part to you, but here are three creative and inspired colour pairings that we recommend for your next project.
THE ROUGH TREATMENT
Tarnished metal, untreated wood and raw concrete are elements that have risen in popularity in recent years. The 4046 Excava countertop features an excavated, rusted look that ranges from shades of copper to dark browns. Its rough concrete finish makes it subtly coarse to the touch but overtly appealing to the eye, especially when softened by Sherwin-Williams paints like Armadillo SW 9160, Raisin SW 7630 or Windfresh White SW 7628. Reclaimed wood cabinetry is a great, environmentally-conscious option that adds warmth and weight to your kitchen.
THE COOL LOOK
Confident, clean lines can give you the kind of understated elegance you look for in a contemporary space. The 4601 Frozen Terra is the perfect countertop to turn your kitchen into a modern masterpiece. Tinted shades of white and irregular black accents give it an element of intrigue, making it a stunning surface for stylish entertaining. For an elevated level of interest, we recommend brushed steel cabinetry and Sherwin-Williams Gray Matters SW 7066, Grizzle Gray SW 7068 or Passive SW 7064 for colour options.
An ever-growing interest in urban spaces is undeniable. 4023 Topus Concrete combines mineral formations with rugged industrial patinas to create opacity and depth. A warm and soft blush undertone pairs beautifully with Sherwin-Williams’ Touch of Sand SW 9085, Moscow Midnight SW 9142 and Doeskin SW 6044 paint colours. We also recommend integrating dark decorative accessories or black lacquered accents to anchor your urban-inspired space.
