Irrespective of their preferred design (Traditional, Transitional, Modern), many of our clients are drawn to more common color palettes, such as off-white. Our friends at Medallion Cabinetry have released their Finish Folio that contains a number of food-inspired spicy kitchen accents colors that we would like to share with you.
Medallion’s Design & Trends Expert Suzanne Derusha has inspired us to dig deeper into the idea of Spicy Kitchen Accents. Adding a pop of color to a more common color palette adds the right amount of “zing” and interest to a, perhaps, predictable design. Take a look and Suzanne’s color boards. We think you will think differently about your color options.
In our country, the word Curry conjures-up a single flavor from a single cuisine. According to Wikipedia, “Curry refers to a variety of dishes originating in the Indian subcontinent that use a complex combination of spices or herbs, usually including ground turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, and fresh or dried chilies.”
The blend of spices that make up a Curry are analogous to the pigments that are combined to make Medallion’s color Curry. The color can also be used to support other food-related finishes, as shown below. Just like the artful display of spices seem to be organized by color, this board makes good use of other food-inspired shades.
Taking things a step further, here is an example of a curated color board that supports Curry with other cabinetry finishes, as well as Bianco Drift and Coastal Grey countertop colors from our friends at Caesarstone®.
While were on this spice-kick, Suzanne has also curated another color board that was used to create this Arts-and-Crafts kitchen design. Note how the Spanish Paprika refrigerator and pantry makes a bold, but not overwhelming, statement.
Are all of these colors right for everyone? Maybe not. Could you use these for inspiration? Of course!
Where you end up is a matter of your personal taste. We hope that this blog has caused you to think differently about what your remodel or new construction project could be. We would be happy to consult with you.
