One of our favorite kitchen outfitters, Plain English, has teamed up with Accidental Decorator Adam Bray to develop a collection of â€œcolors for cupboards,â€ which are bolder and a departure from the muted colors we have come to associate with the companyâ€™s understated Georgian-inspired designs. â€œThis is a palette of 12 diverse but inherently English colors, taking inspiration from the now almost forgotten, everyday shades of the 20th century,â€ says Katie Fontanta, the creative director and founder of Plain English. For more information, contact Plain English.
