As the days shorten and we begin to settle back into the warmth and comfort of our homes, our kitchens offer a chance to bring colour and personality to the room we call the heart of the home.

Whether you introduce soft pale shades or embrace the deep dark and moody, remember that introducing colour is one of the most instant and effective ways to personalise your kitchen.

But whatever your personal style and colour preference – just imagine how amazing your kitchen will look with all those glass jars and bottles containing the sugary fruit concoctions of your home-made sloe gin and plum brandy.
