Trend watch: Copper and black kitchen

The key to creating a successful copper and black kitchen is to add contrast. This prevents the room from looking too gloomy. A light grey on the walls will act as a light relief against the dark black cabinets.

Introduce warm wood tones with the table and worktop, this adds depth, texture and character. The reflective and fashionable copper utensils create lustre and drama and work well on this handy pegboard. We painted our board to match the colour of the walls. The addition of potted herbs and flowers, although small, is crucial to the finished look as the lime pops against the black cabinets, bringing the whole look alive.  The photographs are by the very talented Jo Henderson.

We love this copper cutlery set from George Home, it’s affordable and oh so stylish…

I don’t know about you but I have the most annoying cutlery drawer at home. Every time you open it, it gets stuck on whichever utensil decides to be in the way. It drives me mad! I admit, I probably put far too much in there. Not anymore as I have this handy pegboard.

Galvanised planters are great for the kitchen. The rustic texture complements the herbs and brings an element of the outside in.
