Cooking with colour

Kitchen design is far from a black and white world, as these colourful TIDA 2023 kitchen entries reflect – spoiler: greens are always welcome in the kitchen

1. Garden greens

Here, the garden landscape is brought into the kitchen and living areas with a soft green wall tone, which extends to the main wall of lacquered kitchen cabinetry, in Resene Bitter, with matt finish.

2. Blue for you

The kitchen's aesthetic was carefully crafted to exude sophistication, with dark blue and grey cabinetry, an Olympia Quartzite Honed Block benchtop and satin brass diamond-textured handles.

3. Reflecting on nature

Poggenpohl cabinetry in Pine Green metallic gloss lacquer provided a unique design direction for this kitchen – paired with Poggenpohl Opal Grey finishes and matching wall paint for a seamless and contemporary aesthetic.

4. Leafy location

This kitchen's dark Kombo green Dezignatek cabinetry references the site's leafy surrounds and the green outlook from the elevated lounge to the new carport roof garden.

5. Playing favourites

Designer: "To address the owners' love of natural timber but in an unpredictable way, I stained timber in their favourite colour green and then wire-brushed the cabinetry to give them the green look they were after. The teal blue painted walls give the green cabinetry colour relief."

6. Contemporary balances classic

A lively green energises this kitchen hub – part of a modern interior balancing a new but vintage look exterior. Here, vintage materiality is revisited with contemporary colours and form.
