At once sophisticated and light, decorating your kitchen with mint and marble brings a fresher, brighter look to follow on from our deep love for teal and amazingly, your brass tapware and accents will tie in beautifully. Just look at Mandy Moore’s stunning kitchen if you still need convincing.
If brass isn’t your thing, go for the on-trend matte black finish in tapware for a crisp and contemporary accent that has stood the test of our style-ometer and pair it with accents of black in cabinetry or statement lighting.
A look at the latest kitchen renovation by serial house flippers Three Birds Renovations shows how it’s done with aplomb – all fresh and white, with marble almost taking a back seat to the sharp lines of black-framed cabinetry and large format finishes.
It’s a look that’s timeless – seen from a different angle it’s clearly mint that is doing the heavy lifting here, but that’s the beauty of it – marble and white anchor the space in quiet sophistication and a show-stopping central island (we're loving the eliptical shape here), punctuates with a colour highlight, picked up elsewhere in benchtop appliances and artful vignettes.
Timeless indeed, because used in this way a trending colour can be updated down the track with a whole new look – handles on cabinetry and/or a new style of tapware are all that’s needed for the whole kitchen to be reborn.
