Inspired By Nature: Redesign Your Kitchen With Winter's Color Palette
Our surroundings affect our moods. Choosing colors that remind you of positive experiences can not only personalize your space but make it more comfortable. I’ve found as each season unfolds, nature inspires us. Winter is one of the most extravagant shows of nature in my book.
Winter is a bold and eventful season that makes us reminisce of family gatherings, dramatic snow covered landscapes, and cozy evenings near the hearth with hot cocoa. If you’re in love with the dazzling colors of winter and can’t help but smile when you see the first snowflakes … perhaps you should look at pulling some of Winter’s hues into your home.
Inspired by a first snowfall in the forest, this finish palette combines Dura Supreme's White paint and Weathered D finish on Cherry with Sherwin-Williams Upward (SW 6239) paint. This combination of finishes is bright, crisp and breathtaking just like the first dusting of snow on the branches of a tree.
The sight of a charming pinecone inspires a heartwarming color palette. This cozy color palette combines Dura Supreme’s Natural Knotty Alder, Clove stain and Black accent finish on Knotty Alder and Antique White paint. It reminds me of Christmas trees, ornate holiday wreaths and all the joyous family gatherings that happen around them.
An early morning hike on a snow covered mountain reminds us of fresh cool air, bright open skies and dramatically contrasted treetops against wispy snowcaps. In this color palette, Dura Supreme's Smoke stain on Quarter-Sawn Red Oak contrast with the White paint like trees contrast the snow. While Dura Supreme’s Personal Paint Match finish in Smokey Blue is a beautiful complimenting finish for a feature piece like a kitchen island and Sherwin-Williams Evening Shadow SW 7662 for the walls resembled cool winter skies. This color palette can create a design that feels spacious, bright and calming.
With white kitchen and bathroom cabinets being so popular today. I can’t help but to think that it is possibly related to our love of bright, white, dramatic winter landscapes and our fond memories of the holidays that surround the season.
