Exploring Autumn Kitchen Colours


As the trees are beginning to shed their leaves and the ground slowly becomes covered in a sea of mottled red and amber, it can only mean one thing; autumn is here.

Although it’s the gateway to a cold and dark winter, it’s hard to dislike this season for all its wonderfully warm shades and interesting textures. So, why not explore our autumn colour palettes and recreate this gorgeous seasonal glow in your kitchen.

Orange and Yellows

Warm and sweet like a spiced pumpkin latte

Burnt oranges and warmed yellows are an all-time autumn classic. No doubt that this trend will be revived again this season as the temperatures begin to turn. This popular colour scheme reflects, in many ways, the shades of the season. The warm tones remind me of drinking spiced pumpkin lattes in candlelit rooms and eating hearty roasts dinners with honey glazed carrots to warm you right through! Tried and tested, this glowing décor scheme is sure to keep your kitchen feeling snug this fall.

Rich and Earthy Reds

As scrumptious as  a cinnamon swirl

Choosing a rich and earthy crimson will bring a welcoming warmth into your kitchen space. This brilliant colour palette is extremely adaptable and will look great in any décor scheme. It is sure to charm in a rustic country kitchen, or have a deep and striking effect when styled in a bold, modern design.

Deep Turquoise and Forest Greens

Something a little bit different…

When visualising the signature colours of autumn, they tend to reflect the amber and earthy shades of the fallen leaves and bare tree tops, but this isn’t to say that you cannot branch out (excuse the pun) into other palettes. Deep turquoises and forest greens are a great start, especially when offset by a soft berry red. These lush, rich colours will bring an autumnal warmth into your kitchen that is sure to look superb all year round!

If you’re not planning a big restyle in your kitchen but you still want to add a seasonal touch, try adding a few well thought out accessories, or perhaps painting a feature wall to keep your room looking comfortable and cosy this autumn.
