A twist on neutrals


If you’re looking for a timeless and welcoming space, why not paint your tiles in a calming neutral? Taupe or mushroom hues offer versatility and provide a soft backdrop for your existing fittings. Layer neutral colors to create a sophisticated feel and try leaving the other walls a different color – this will draw the eye to the main hub of the kitchen. Add a vase of flowers with gentle lighting to finish the room and create the perfect setting for entertaining.
