kaboodle x The Design Chaser
dream kitchen moodboards
get the designer look for less
We’re joined by Michelle Halford – The Design Chaser – who hero’s hues from our latest trends range and pairs them with some of kaboodle’s most popular neutral kitchen cabinet shades to create her designer but affordable kitchen moodboards.
moodboard | walnut
This moodboard hero’s walnut from the kaboodle embrace kitchen trend and was Michelle's favourite to create. It is a warm and textural woodgrain designed to create a welcoming space and sense of grounding.
“For the kitchen benchtops I chose stone-look vanilla cream which adds another layer of texture to the kitchen, while in keeping with the natural tones. For the kitchen handles, I've chosen the plaza handles in matt black, a contemporary style which adds subtle contrast.
Originating from Japan and sourced locally, the tiles for this moodboard are white ﬁnger mosaics that show variations - an inherent characteristic of the artisanal Japanese manufacturing process. I've carried Japanese inﬂuences through to the styling touches which include ceramic forms and Japanese hand-crafted pieces.
moodboard | paprika
This moodboard hero’s paprika from the kaboodle indulge kitchen trend. It is a rich burgundy hue that exudes a sense of European grandeur that’s fit for breathtaking kitchens, laundries, home offices and more.
“For this moodboard I combined paprika, a dark red hue with two calming colours, olive grove, a muted earthy green, and oyster mist, a warm neutral. While paprika is quite rich, exuding elegance, olive grove brings a tranquil feel, and oyster mist is a timeless and versatile colour that compliments them both."
“The starting point for this moodboard, candy ﬂoss, is a very pale pink colour. I wanted to keep the overall look soft and tonal.
To achieve this, I paired the candy floss with the light grey white pepper and the light wood tone ghost ash. The grey brings a hint of depth and contrast while the wood introduces a warm tactility to your kitchen joinery."
