Ice cream shades in the kitchen
Discover summer’s most tempting kitchen colour trend
With the weather hitting tropical temperatures, it’s the perfect time to embrace the ice cream colour trend, combining pastel hues inspired by your favourite ice cream flavours.
From classic vanilla to mint choc chip and strawberry pink, this trend is sure to bring a refreshing hint of summer into your home. So how can you embrace these deliciously smooth hues within your new kitchen?
What’s your flavour?
Just like building the perfect ice cream sundae, designing a kitchen starts with choosing the right base, by deciding on your cabinet materials and colour palette. Cream kitchens are an easy way to incorporate the ice cream tones trend into your home, offering a blank canvas that works with a huge variety of accent shades and décor styles. Keep it traditional by opting for shaker style cabinets matched with caramel-coloured wood worktops, or match gloss cream cabinets with granite-effect worktops and copper-tone pendant lamps for a bold, contemporary feel.
One scoop or two?
One scoop of ice cream is never enough, so why not add a second shade into the mixture by opting for a feature wall or kitchen splashback in a complementary pastel shade? A hint of pistachio green, raspberry ripple pink or lemon sorbet yellow will draw the eye and lend the entire room a unique sense of character.
The cherry on top
No sundae is complete without toppings, and the right finishing touches will lend your new kitchen a sense of cohesion to complete the ice-cream inspired look. Feature accessories like toasters and kettles in a soothing shade of baby blue are a great way to add personality, or you could add subtle hints of colour through decorative prints, curtains in soft hues and pastel crockery.
