Seeing Red: Kitchen Accessories


The colour of love, passion, and energy, RED is a great choice for your kitchen. Either coated on cabinets or splashed on your appliances, this fiery colour demands attention and makes a bold style statement. I wanted to explore this trend, in particular in the form of kitchen accessories, as it shows no sign of stopping! The beauty of it is it can work well in both contemporary and country kitchens; the former appealing to high gloss and modern units; the latter working well with wooden worktops and white or cream shaker units for a classic contrast.

Deciding on a shade of red will depend on the look you’re wishing to achieve. Light reds are characteristic of a more fun-loving, attention-grabbing look, whereas dark reds or maroons are more sumptuous and give off a luxurious vibe.

Red Roll Top Bread Bin

This bold, roll top bread bin in passionate red is the perfect accessory for your contemporary kitchen. With streaks of silver and a handy easy-grip handle, it appears hi-tech, without the price tag!

Kitchen Wall Art With Red Apples

This unique piece of wall art is a beautiful accompaniment to a country cream or sage kitchen; the hand painted effect giving it a rustic look that works well in a rural setting. Alternatively, place it in a modern kitchen scheme and revel in contemporary art style.

Red and White Teapots

This fine country teapot from Folklore has a distinct cottage charm that would work perfectly in your farmhouse kitchen. The sandstone lid has a textured effect, reflecting a premium quality and the classic red gives it a unique character. It demands to be displayed at all times!

Red Gingham Tea Towel on Wooden Table

For an additional country hit, this red gingham table cloth brings an abundance of Little Red Riding Hood charm – it’s loud enough to create a focal point in your kitchen/dining area, but sophisticated enough to help create a welcoming space. We can’t help but smell Grandma’s fresh baking!

All that’s left now is to decide on your favourites and sit back with a smooth glass of red! Well, it’d be rude not to continue the theme…
