Spring is almost upon us, and with the season we welcome seasonal blooms in our gardens and vibrant fields full of colorful wildflowers. Spring is a time of gentle awakening; when all that has slept soundly through the winter is reintroduced into a new season of promise.
With that transition, we welcome the soft colors of the season, pale yet bright shades that pair well with the mild weather and temperament of spring. These soft colors are the perfect introduction to the bright shades of spring and summer, helping ease us away from winter's muted color palette. In your kitchen, these colors bring vibrancy and joy no matter what the season.
Spring is almost here. Have you caught the fever yet?
In spring, green is everywhere, from the grass on the hillsides to the green stems budding all around us. The green colors of spring provide relief from winter, where months of cold weather may have left things drab and dull. Pastel shades of green are both invigorating and soothing, providing an easy way to introduce personality into your kitchen without being overwhelming.
Pastel green shades look particularly chic when paired with white, silver, and gold tones, and also pair well with rustic surfaces like wood and stone.
Blue is a refreshing shade, known to be invigorating to the senses and appeasing to the soul. A pale or light blue is a fitting shade for spring, representative of the blue skies we begin to see when winter weather begins to fade. Blue in kitchens pairs well with white, gray, or cream colored walls, but can also be paired with a range of bright colors like yellow or green.
