Update your modern kitchen with a vintage twist

The vintage, country look is a hugely popular trend at the moment. It is also a very simple look to achieve simply through accessorising or changing the wallpaper in your kitchen.

Take an unfussy design such as Magnet Planar in a crisp white colour to keep the look fresh and accessorise with vintage florals and bright colours for a modern twist.

Choose pretty colours in pink, pastel shades of blue as well as a range of textures throughout your kitchen by accessorising with canisters, place mats, kettles and toasters. To avoid an overly feminine look add depth to your kitchen with a richer tone, such as deep pink or navy blue.

To really revamp your kitchen, stick with contemporary kitchen cabinets and worktops but choose a bold wallpaper to really make the colour pop in your kitchen. Go for a check, tartan or stripe for the wow factor.

Finally recycle items to accessorise your kitchen; an old watering can makes a great vase, or a wicker basket to store recyclable paper. These finishing touches will accentuate that vintage feel.
