This striking peppermint colour is not the typical shade of green popular in a kitchen space, but in a world of vanilla, neutrals and soft palettes, this minty colour is bold and dramatic. John Lavells at Kitchen Solutions in Caversham, worked with the homeowners to create a symmetrical, balanced kitchen in this relatively small space. John recommended floor to ceiling cupboard doors with a Sub Zero fridge freezer and a Miele oven. They chose a Westin hood, who have the ability to colour match their hoods to any exact Pantone or RAL. Price on request. kitchen-solutions.co.uk, westin.co.uk
