Steal This Look: A Plaster Pink Kitchen in Bath, England

It’s hard not to be wowed by the all-white kitchen, but for those willing to make permanent decisions, thinking about colorful stoves and painted cabinets, the payoff can be huge. Take this pastel kitchen designed by Nicola Harding for a couple living in a refurbished Georgian mansion. Regarding color, Harding explains, “We used dark colors to make large or shaded spaces more intimate, and warm, uplifting tones to make large spaces more relaxed.” With simple English cabinets, factory lights, antiques and children’s artwork, the result is a gentle elegance. Here is our list of sources to match the look.
