Cabinet Maker Plain English Debuts New 12-Shade Line Called Colour
Already offering its custom wares in 24 shades, color isn’t unfamiliar territory for British cabinetry maker Plain English. But that doesn’t mean it can’t expand its offerings. Co-founder and creative director Katie Fontana, in collaboration with interior designer Rita Konig, unveils Colour, a new spectrum of water-based paints in eggshell, gloss, and emulsion finishes. Showcased in a Georgian farmhouse in Suffolk, the 12-shade line was, Konig says, “conceived to work in groups of three: a different color for under the counter, the wall, and the cabinet,” the idea exemplified in cheeky scrub-brush samples. Consider pairing the pastel Silver Polish and Cotton Pinny with the moodier gray-blue Bib and Braces. Or swap out one for a jolt of the saturated yellow Nicotine or zesty-orange Medlar Jelly.
