When it comes to decorating, colour is one of the most powerful design tools that has the possibility to revolutionise your cooking space. Dreamy, exciting, playful or sophisticated – depending on the colours you use, you can evoke a seemingly endless array of vibes, feelings and auras within your kitchen.

Without overstating the abilities of colour within one’s house, it certainly does have the capacity to evoke and exude strong reactions.
