Why choose a pastel kitchen?
Returning over thirteen thousand results on Instagram for the tag #pastelkitchen, embracing a pastel palette in the kitchen is more than an affinity for a certain colour, it’s a decision led by our desire to create a joyful experience in the room many of us spend the most time in.
There’s more to the pastel kitchen look too, this mood-boosting set of colours also works effortlessly with a number of aesthetics. From herb-inspired greens in timeless spaces to sorbet tones of lilac and lemon for a contemporary feel, it seems there’s a pastel for everyone to enjoy in the kitchen.
Kasia Piorko, Founder of Kate Feather Designs, notes, “Pastel-coloured kitchens evoke a sense of calm and tranquillity in what is usually the busiest and most utilized room in the house. You could opt for complementary pastel shades to create a layering of different tones or add various materials to add texture and depth - be it a white marble worktop or brass handles.”
Pastel pink kitchens
Calming and feminine, rose hues and barely-there blush pinks can appear as serene as they can playful. To get the look, team a pastel pink kitchen with a mix of lighter woods like oak or rattan for a natural feel and elevate with accents of glowing gold hardware to embrace a modern luxe design.
