A New Contemporary Living Space
I first met Lucy and Steve in their previous home where they hired me for a 2 brainstorming hour session so I was really pleased when, after a house move, they invited me back to work with them on their living space renovation. The back of the house had a very old kitchen, a traditional separate dining room and an old sun room. They had decided on knocking it all through to make one large space.
They wanted the space to feel calming and relaxed with plenty of space to cook, which they both love doing after their busy jobs. They wanted it to feel contemporary and light, without being cold or stark so I created a simple colour scheme of white, warm timber and soothing greens.
Our first major decision was with the old chimney breast, which we decided to keep, partly to help the budget, but also because it added character and helped to demarcate the different spaces within the room. It was the best location for the oven and hob, which also reflected the history of the property, and after deciding on this range our cabinet maker created bespoke cupboards either side, perfect for hiding cleaning products and oil bottles.
This is a Second Nature kitchen, they are an award winning kitchen supply company and are known as one of the leading independent kitchen brands in the UK. These doors are from the Remo range, Porcelain white and paint-to-order Trench Coat Grey.
