There is no place like our kitchens in our homes, especially during the much-anticipated festive season. A kitchen is essentially a soul of any home, it’s where we go to nourish our bodies, it’s also the part of our home where the best bonding takes place. We share stories of the day that has just passed, reminisce on fond family memories, and of course, add a little bit of odd gossip story here and there.
Taking inspiration from the recently launched Dulux Colour of the Year 2024, Sweet Embrace™, which has shown how people are looking to utilise colour in redefining their place in the world, here are some of the latest kitchen colour trends we’ve been seeing in 2023 so far as we head towards the festive season.

Global earthy tones are warm neutrals which are grounding and timeless, reminding you of home, a place that feels comfortable and safe, and combines shades of stone, soil and clay. They can help create a personal space that’s familiar and embracing – somewhere we can feel snug and find comfort. They are known to bring the essence of nature and tranquillity, truly setting up the mood of the moment when you are busy cooking your favourite dishes for your family during this festive season.
