A French purple cabinet kitchen exudes a vibrant and youthful originality.
Not long ago, finding a room painted purple in a house was one of those “what were they thinking?” moments. Now here is a purple cabinet kitchen! Often purple décor was a remnant (sometimes hidden behind wallpaper) of the psychedelic ’60s, the last time violet (as the hue is properly named) was seen extensively.
Though plum made a brief appearance in 2001, purples like the intense Sherwin Williams Kimono Violet, which would be a match more or less to the color on the base cabinet are shown frequently now in part because the Skittles generation adores and accepts candy colors at home.
Given the ongoing popularity of white and gray kitchens, finding one with eccentric purple base cabinets is unusual. Even more rare is purple used as part of a very sophisticated scheme including drab vanilla walls which are similar to Pratt and Lambert’s Waxen Yellow.
Additionally, there are gray-violet accents, especially in the table top. That could easily be replicated with a color like Benjamin Moore’s Wet Concrete which, being a gray-violet will be highly mutable.
This kitchen reminds me of a European country cottage, albeit one updated modestly to include stone counters with a nice piece left over for a matching table top. While it may lack cabinetry detail, tile or whizzy appliances, it has plenty of zip and charm and we love the old-fashioned details left: window “ventilation” for the range, a vintage wall-mounted sink faucet and even the exposed water tank.
