An Aubergine Autumn Is On The Cards For Kitchens

This cosy kitchen trend is one to embrace for autumn…

Pink graced interior trends throughout the summer, but as the weather gets colder, kitchen design experts are darkening their rosy palette and turning to dark, rich and warming shades like aubergine to make spaces feel cosy at the start of autumn. Accompany these rich walls and cabinets with brass accents, lighter, brighter countertops or splashbacks, and accessorise with colourful fruit bowls, dried plants or seasonal candles to bring it all together. See our aubergine inspiration here…


Aubergine is a colour that has long been used in traditional country kitchens and so although the deep shade promotes a sense of sophistication it also has that cosiness of tradition. As seen in this charming DeVol kitchen, the tongue and groove panelling is completely enhanced by the aubergine.


When designing the rest of your kitchen around the vegetable-themed colour, fellow autumn-coloured objects or surfaces work marvellously to enhance it. Brass accents or countertops pair beautifully with the walls and cabinets while warm oak cabinetry works wonderfully as well. The result is rich and warming and oh so autumnal.


Even a note of the deep wine colour will add an autumnal feel to your cooking space and provide a sense of feminine elegance at the same time. This O’Connor’s of Drumleck kitchen boasts Farrow and Ball’s Bringal shade on the base of the central island.


Using other rosy shades with the darker aubergine colour creates a very warm atmosphere. Incorporating a deep shade into your splashback helps to create depth in the room, like in this layered DeVol kitchen. The warm oak worktop table, which acts as an island, ties it all together.


Traditional shaker doors floor to ceiling boast the aubergine colour beautifully and leave the rest of the kitchen open to other autumnal additions.


Letting the aubergine shade filter into your pantry or side room (if you have one of course) makes it cosy and inviting and negates an entire kitchen transformation while still adding a pop of colour. The shade feels like a warm hug on a cold autumn day.


When committing to a colour, having a built-in dishwasher helps you keep the aubergine theme running smoothly. The iQ700 fully-integrated dishwasher is a clever design and practical choice. As a machine it promotes more production and less hassle. There is a safe zone for your most valuable glasses for those autumn wine nights and you can rate your dishwasher via the Home Connect App with how satisfied you are with the duration of the programme and cleaning and drying results. An eco-bonus is that it also offers full transparency about water and energy consumption.
