Cool and contemporary kitchen Perk up a plain white kitchen with a bold splash of colour. In a contemporary kitchen, swap a traditional tiled splashback for something more colourful. Paint the wall in a contrasting colour, like this zesty lime, then fix a glass splashback to the wall to protect the paintwork.
WALL: BM Pine Green in Aura (richer) DOOR: SW Real Red, semi-gloss. (good to: BM Jade Garden a deep watery teal) For energy added chartreuse & dynamic red. "think beyond "dark" "light" paint, & more about mood. Room is "light" if gets lots of light. If not, it's never going to be light. I prefer to bring in boldness & brightness with deeper wall color to keep it from getting too serious. Best advice - try to define what mood you want when selecting colors & use hues that support that mood.
