October is a seriously food-centric month. Did you know we celebrate National Brunch Weekend, World Pasta Day, International Chefs Day, National Baking Week and World Food Day! The Autumn season provides a wealth of colourful food, which give TV favourites like Big Zuu’s Big Eats and Saturday Kitchen endless ideas for new recipes, which we can then try at home. That got us to thinking – if we’re influenced by what we eat, are we also influenced where we eat?
Vintage Styling with green credentials
The rise of vintage styling has been a major spin-off from The Great British Bake-Off marquee. The presenters may have changed, but the shaker style kitchen with its duck-egg blue and sage green accents seems set to last. This trend obviously made a big impression on GBBO winner Nadiya Hussain, as she has also chosen the vintage shaker look for the backdrop on her Everyday Baking series.
To replicate this style, choose a Quartz Worktop from the new Sunlit Days range by Cosentino – either Silestone Cala Blue or Silestone Posidonia Green. This Quartz combines colour with the latest Hybriq technology. The Hybriq process makes this the ideal choice for consumers looking for a sustainable kitchen worktop. Made with at least 20% recycled materials and produced using completely renewable energy sources and recycled water, it is the perfect worktop solution.
Modern Urban: uber-eats meet uber-stylish
If you’re a devotee of Nigel Slater’s Simple Cooking, it may mean your style aspirations lean more towards what is termed Modern Urban? This look has endless interpretations and could include an uber-contemporary kitchen within a period property. Or maybe against reclaimed materials. Individuality is a strong theme and the uniqueness of natural stones like Black Fusion Granite or Calacatta Borghini Marble will really work in these schemes.
Quartz worktops like CaesarStone or Ceramic worktops like Ceralsio should not be overlooked either. Besides the usual polished surface, many come in a variety of other finishes – honed, suede and concrete. Colours like CaesarStone Black Tempal or Ceralsio Pietra Grey can add a modern texture to the kitchen.
