A Modern Interior Kitchen Design
As with most homes, the heart of this home was in the kitchen. We inherited a sensational bespoke designed oak kitchen from when the property was custom built over 14 years ago. Exceptional in its quality we proposed a scheme incorporating the main units, the existing anthracite Aga and a layout that would flow through the house from the day to day less formal entrance into the house, through a wide hall cloakroom, into a back of house annexe, separate drinks area and into the main kitchen.
The scheme gave a contemporary feel to the overall space, the kitchen opened up into a stylish but traditional dining space overlooking the garden. In the brief we were asked to update this and create the feel of the boathouse. We did this simply with the addition of shutters, adding lighter and more modern finishes and pulling a grey wash over the existing woodwork.
We added a contemporary drop of porcelain pendants from BTC. The softness of the finishes adds to the relaxed and warm atmosphere throughout. The space became a much lighter experience, less formal. The last room this flowed through was the Orangerie lounge where we added accents of indigo blue and mustard, with eye catching glass and porcelain vessels from William Yeoward. The buttoned upholstery held on to the splendid grandeur of the property and the conservatory glass formed spaces, the result was an uplifted adult lounging space
