Trend watch: Copper and black kitchen

This Copper and Black kitchen from Wren is the first of my 3 looks for Homestyle magazine’s October issue and with a huge move towards black kitchens, it’s only right that we show you how to pull the look together.  The key to using black (or any dark colour) is to add contrast to prevent the room from looking too gloomy and oppressive. We opted for a pale and contrasting putty coloured paint on one wall which acted as a light relief against the rich raven grey/black paint on the adjoining wall.  Our introduction of wood, with the table and worktop, adds depth, texture and character, whilst the beautifully reflective, and fashionable, copper utensils create a little lustre.  We completed the look with an injection of green with the potted herbs and flowers, although small and simple, the addition of this colour is crucial as the lime pops against the black cabinets bringing the look alive.  The photographs are taken by the very talented Jo Henderson.  For the full feature, check out the October issue of Homestyle magazine, out now!

I don’t know about you but I have the THE most annoying cutlery drawer at home, every time you open it it gets stuck on whichever utensil decides to be in the way, it drives me mad! I admit, I probably put far too much in there but having discovered this pegboard it’s adios drawer and hello organised pegboard :)

Galvanised planters are great for the kitchen as the rustic texture of the pots compliment the pretty botanical element of garden herbs, these particular ones vary in size and and can be used inside or out
