After a long winter of comforting, cosy dishes, we’re ready to give our diets a little spring clean – and our kitchens too! Take a peek at our new season kitchen design ideas that will bring new life into your interior scheme and help you to beat those January blues!
The promise of spring always fills us with joy and inspires us to bring lots of beautiful colour into our homes and this year we’re inspired by Pantone’s colours of the year – Serenity and Rose Quartz. Relaxed seaside and powdery blues are complemented by delicate sage greens and blush pink, cotton-candy hues to create a soothing aesthetic that promotes mindfulness and a calming ambience in your interior space.
To brighten up your kitchen design, try combining our collections of beautiful tea towels, aprons and oven gloves for stylish bursts of colour. Patterned textiles are the perfect remedy to enrich the soul of your space and make rustling up your home comforts all the more enjoyable! Fold neatly over the stove door handle for an understated accent of colour or create a feature wall by hanging from stylish wall hooks in a choice of painted and natural finishes for a kitchen design idea with maximum visual impact.
Beautiful wooden pieces and stylish timber finishes are cropping up across the designer collections for SS16, especially in kitchenware. For a gorgeous, natural kitchen design idea, try introducing wooden chopping boards into the space. These beauties are perfect for slicing, serving and displaying on your work surfaces.
Create interest by your kitchen window by planting fresh garden herbs in selfwatering pots or make a statement with a bouquet of fresh daffodils for an instant injection of springtime colour. Putting colourful seasonal fruits on display is a wonderful way to tap into the organic trend too. Go for a wooden fruit bowl and fill it to the brim with nature’s vibrant hues.
Bakeware this beautiful deserves to be on display and will bring a gorgeous rush of colour and style into your kitchen interior! We love the smoky blues from Emile Henry combined with the cool contemporaneity of Universal Expert’s natural beech wood utensils by Sebastian Conran – pair with the Sebastian Conran Wooden Cookbook Stand, for the ultimate style staple to ensure your new season recipes go to plan!
Keep the chaos of culinary clutter at bay with designer storage and utensil jars, then, take inspiration from the relaxed aesthetic of French farmhouse interiors by creating a functional storage area for your everyday kitchen essentials. Ideal for saving valuable storage space in your kitchen cupboards, the introduction of wooden storage shelves or an antique inspired kitchen wall rack is the perfect kitchen design idea for keeping ingredients, crockery and utensils organised for the busy spring and summer months to come.
Create a colourful display by decanting pasta, rice and pulses into glass storage jars and stack dinner, salad and side plates to achieve a visual dimension whilst also having what you need close to hand. Or, for a more contemporary look, go Scandic and mix and match modular shelving for a super stylish, modern storage idea.

Pastel tones are firmly on trend this season and we love the colourful ceramics from one of our favourite tableware brands, Jansen & Co. Beautifully glazed and fading from brilliant bold tones to pretty pastels, Jansen & Co mugs, cups and saucers will combine wonderfully with colourful designer serving trays and provide the perfect antidote to lift your colour scheme and your spirits too.
The enduring copper trend is also a firm favourite at the forefront of this season’s interior design ideas. Complement your glazed ceramics with an Art Deco inspired designer stove top coffee maker from Tom Dixon to bring the tastes and aromas of a Parisian bistro into the heart of your kitchen and create a convivial focal point above your breakfast bar with an installation of low-hanging copper pendant lamps to welcome the new season in style!
