How they do accent colours in Europe - and it works!
Its seems lately, that accent colour trends in SA have moved to making a statement with anything but just the walls - which has been a trend in Europe for years. We're catching up!
We are talking split kitchen colours, dark vanities, wall paneling and dark architraves or ceilings. Yes, it is brave, but read on to see how bold can be really beautiful in the not so expected places!
1. Two-toned cabinetry
Two-toned cabinetry provides the best of both worlds.
When following this trend, one should pair a deeper and darker coloured base with white or light upper cabinetry. Consider picking up an accent colour on the door frame or even on the window frames Forget boring white ( or chrome ) frames. Anything can be tinted ...
Break up accent colours in kitchens with warm, Oak beams, or timber floating shelves, and remember that light white counters temper the dark paint on the units.
2. Accent Ceilings
We are loving this trend! Although accent walls are the go to choice, how about switching things up?
Accent ceilings are the perfect way to create a statement in your home, whilst still keeping it light and airy. It is contemporary, comforting and grounding - all at the same time. Dare to try it?
3. Dark, deep doorways, skirting and architraves
Traditionally, skirting boards and doorways have always been made lighter than the walls around them.
Recently we have seen this idea being turned on its head, accent coloured doorways, skirting and architraves - and it looks SO good.
Accent wall paneling has made a great come back, so much so we have a dedicated blog post for that here.
