Colour Palette: Rustic Kitchen Diner

If I ever need reminding of just how powerful colour can be in an interior space, then this would be the room to do it. Why? Well, take a moment to imagine this space without the weathered green factory pendant or the rustic blue stool and rug. Without them, I believe the space would be lifeless and seriously lacking in depth. The green pendant provides a visual break between the pale wooden dining furniture and the white cabinetry behind; this is important addition because it brings depth, while also drawing the eye down to the focal point of the room. Meanwhile, the texture and colour added through the blue Tolix stool and rug bring warmth to the milky white base palette. I love the subtle addition of purple through the blooms, too - green and purple are such a great combination! What do you like about this space?

  1. Love this room! I have a big pendant light hanging above my dining room table....Thinking that a coat of paint might help the room POP! :)

  2. Love love love this room. I like it all put together but I love the light and the chairs because they are both old and have character. The table is fabulous too.

  3. I love everything about this kitchen. The pendant really draws your attention to the small, thoughtful touches - flowers, herbs, artichokes and oils.

    1. agreed. and the restraint in color used makes ensures that colors aren't too loud and competing for your attention---these colors still add pop without making the space feel too "bubbly"

  6. Love the pendant light and I even like how the scratched off section on the white chairs works in with the colour palette. Your right in every way about the rest of the room. Perfect description of the space.

  7. i love that it feels warm and inviting with an edge. The rustic approach adds warmth to pure white, making it more livable, especially during those cold winter mornings. Of course I love the healthy doses of colors here and there from the pendant and the blooms!

  8. Usually I don't like a room with too much white, but like you said the blues and greens play a vital role and makes it look really nice.

  10. Love the kitchen, I love the extra height wall cupboards - but I'm planning my new kitchen and looking for extra high units! The scrubbed wooden table and old metal stools are great together.

  11. I love this room and I love using colors, but I find most interiors today are setup with neutral tones, making me feeling lonely on my color planet...

  12. I love the colour palette of this space, the room has that warmth I long for even though the cupboards are white. And don't get me started on that flower vase!

  15. I tend to shy away from colours in big doses so this room is absolutely perfect for me! The first word that came to mind when I saw it was “harmonious” – which is just the kind of feeling I want in a kitchen! I love the whole casual feel too with the banquet bench and then those gorgeous white chairs!

  18. You're right Will, without those touches of colour it would be so boring! But as it now, I absolutely love it. Especially the mismatched seating, the pendant light and the vase of flowers. Gorgeous! Have a fantastic weekend!

    Ps waiting eagerly for your new site reveal!:)
