Shades of Grey…

Grey… by far the most popular colour choice for 2015 so far.

Perhaps is the book or film that’s pushed grey into the spotlight (I have to admit I haven’t had much to do with either although I presume that it’s not a colour consultation guide!) but grey has certainly been fantastically popular over the last year or so.


I can certainly see why. Both timeless and classic grey can offer depth and drama to any room.

The Little Greene Company have responded to the popularity of grey by introducing their own ‘Grey’ collection. A whole booklet dedicated to the shade and there’s certainly something for everyone.


The Little Greene Companies ‘Grey’ Collection

French Grey ‘113’ from The Little Greene Company has been a solid favorite so far as it is the perfect balance between being warm and cool and subtly enough to work on a large-scale. We are currently installing a beautiful kitchen in three glorious and bold shades of grey and even black. Needless to say we can’t wait to take some shots when we’re all done and dusted!

Going Green…

Green is one of my favourite colours, were lucky to be surrounded by lush greens here in the old steam mill. In fact our show kitchen and front doors are all various shades of The Little Greene Company’s selection of greens.

Colours are always a hard choice for our clients when it comes to selecting shades for their new kitchen. That’s why we offer a comprehensive colour consultation to help make those all important decisions.colour_blog_2

Green is a popular option, particularly in country kitchens teamed with rustic oak work surfaces and traditional ceramic hardware.

Its amazing where you find inspiration for colours and textures to incorporate around your home. We recently took a trip to Devon where we made a trip to Hartland Abbey and Gardens. A beautiful Abbey just off the North Devonshire coast was built in 1157 and is well worth a visit. The walled gardens made for a great afternoon out in between beach trips and proved to be a great source of green-spiration!

I’ve wanted to visit Hartland Abbey since I found a collection of beautiful interior shots taken by photographer Ingrid Rasmussen in the essential coffee table book New Country Style England. The interior didn’t disappoint although the gardens were certainly the highlight.

We also managed to find time to stop for tea and cake, where we were joined by a suitably colourful cockerel. I think that these red doors are just his colour!
