I voted blue but it's really more of a lavender. With maple units. And white woodwork.

Nice and fresh looking even though it's 5 or 6 years old. :thumbs:

You've just moved to Swindon? Poor you! What did you do to deserve that fate? :p

Take heart from me, I got out after 2 years. So It can be done :lol:

and my kitchen is a predictible, although very nicely suited Magnolia.

Beech units, with black marble worktops, and sandy beige tiles.

Swindon is only just down the road from me.

They do have a few good things, a decent cinema, an Asda Walmart and best of all an Alfa dealer.

The Alfa dealer stitched me up once though so I don't use them.

Blueberry Crush emulsion, tiles of a similar hue that blend, two window blinds from JL blue and yellow, and a clock with flowers on that matches those blinds, limewashed oak unit doors, and it's dated by modern designs now, but it's a big part of our home still that we like.

So didn't I post a piccie of our cosy kitchen a while back? Lets see some of yours then, the finished article, not the design centre display preferably.:):

Mine's white units, granite top, with a light lavender on the walls. Sounds ucky but looks great with the chrome accessories (kettle, microwave etc).............. Just a shame I got it all how I like it and I can't bloomin live there anymore!

I know that sort of shading effect too Al.:D But I'm quite amazed that the lightish blue emulsion on our walls has maintained it's colour stability over the years and has been a doddle to just give a wash (actually she used the Karcher steamer last time! ) and then just do a bit of touching up, faded out using some thinned a bit colour with a sponge, for a virtually invisible spruce up.:):

Like the sound of all your kitchens :thumbs:

I've gone for light lime green on the walls, white ceiling, chrome/silver/lime accessories/appliances, light beech cupboards, black/grey flecked granite effect worktop, black/grey floor tiles not decided on wall tiles yet possibly white with a lime green mosaic style border?

Looking forward to seeing a pic of your kitchen Keithy :thumbs:
