A Bright and Vibrant Kitchen Design
Sunshine yellow was the obvious accent for the large open plan kitchen off this room. The room was ideal for a daytime living space as it had glass virtually on all elevations but one. The flow of rooms pulled light and colour in from the surrounding gardens.
The obvious back drop colour for us was a soft pale grey, with fresh off white woodwork we wanted to enhance the light but to keep it practical as a family and friends party space, we used vinyl wallcovering. There were three designs in total as the area needed segregated. The largest accent pattern or Greek key design was on the only wall with no window. It was uncluttered, but with a wall mounted TV there, so proportionately the size of the repeat worked well but would have been far too much for the whole space, and the owner, who needed some persuading!
We used a small repeat contemporary pattern in the kitchen, moving through to the adjoining dining conservatory at the front of the house with a textured linen weave. This helped create a soft finish to all the glass complimented by the loose sheer fabric which could be draw against the sunshine if needed.
The kitchen design and units were smart and bold. Clean in design as any kitchen should be. The accent of the wenge dark wood, stainless steel and light Corian tops ensured the room felt fresh and clean in design. The extraordinary size of the space was compelling as the largest of island units just disappeared into the space. The end result was perfect for the space and the flexibility of usage for this particular family. A lot of people where being fed and watered and there were so many options comfortably offered through this design. The family breakfast seating made up the end section of the vast island, where bar stool seating sat comfortably down one side freeing up the kitchen space for the creation of food and drink.
The spirited and fun loving characteristics of the owner lead to the sunshine mustard yellow accents, in the dropped pendants, the vividly coloured and patterned curtain fabric in the TV area of the breakfast room ( that took me out of my comfort zone, but worked a treat!) Just enough accessories to give a sophisticated impact. I particularly liked the smart fabric contrast selected for the two small “ made for coffee for two” carver chairs overlooking the terrace.
The whole refurb was fresh and fun and one was of our favourite interior design projects in Windermere, Cumbria.
