Sneak Peek: Three fabulous new trends to embrace with Wendy Moore
Introducing colour to the kitchen is a brilliant way to bring life and vibrancy into an important social space, and a
key goal of Belling with our Colour Boutique range. Falling in love with a particular hue is a great place to start in
any kitchen design, and as colour trends change and flex, so does Belling. We’ve collaborated with interior design
expert Wendy Moore on our latest range, set to capture the hearts and minds of Australians.

“My whole team is thrilled to help develop these new colours for Belling’s Colour Boutique ovens, which are
fantastic appliances that can really drive the direction of a kitchen design. It’s a dream project for us,” says Wendy

“My team looked at what’s trending locally and internationally in design. The new hues work with multiple interior
styles, feel modern and new, and yet comforting and homely,” explains Wendy, a trusted trend forecaster.
Let’s take a sneak peek at Wendy’s inspiration.

Trend 1: Racing Green

A British company renowned internationally, Belling has a heritage of classic design and British craftsmanship. Bringing a colour that would embody this bold vibe was a challenge Wendy was keen to embrace.

“The Interiors Edit team wanted heritage style with a modern twist,” she explains. “And what better way to do that than with a colour inspired by iconic British Racing Green, a hue synonymous not just with its country of origin but with craftsmanship, elegance and luxury?”

Long a favourite in Wendy’s colour palette (read her blog all about Green, the everlasting trend, here), this particular hue is rich, enveloping and soothing.

How to use it: It is equally at home with warm blonde wood as dark timber laminate; looks fab with brass hardware, as well as stone benchtops, green cabinetry and herringbone or classic tiles.

Trend 2: Seafoam Blue

There’s a sense of romance and timelessness to seafoam, a colour that speaks to aquatic green-blues, subtle beauty and the power of the ocean. Ephemeral yet grounding, this soft colour is also reminiscent of weathered sea glass, key for Wendy and her team, who wanted to ground coastal style in this symbolic hue.

“The ocean is ever changing, unique–just like every home, every kitchen,” says Wendy. “When we looked at where coastal interior design is heading, we felt it’s in a sophisticated, modern direction that can suit heritage homes as well as new builds. This colour transcends styles in this way-it really has a touch of magic to it.”

How to use it: It instantly updates classic coastal whites, sits effortlessly with marble and grey-toned laminates, and looks simply stunning with silver hardware and white washed timbers.

Trend 3: Dusty Pink

We’ve witnessed the rise and rise of Millennial Pink, which reached such a point of saturation that it was often described as a new neutral, according to Wendy. Now, Barbiecore has taken over-meaning the spectrum from the brightest of hot pinks to gorgeous baby pinks are firmly back in fashion.

“For Belling, our team wanted to draw on these trends in a really liveable, long lasting way. We developed Dusty Pink to bring a gorgeously muted edge to the pink trend, referencing that effortless Scandinavian palette that is guaranteed to stand the test of time,” says Wendy.

How to use it: Pair it with blonde timbers, warm marble or Venetian plaster. It has clean, modern vibes yet equally suits Shaker-style profiles as modern handle-free ones.
