We have explored two expressions of this look. The first design uses Broadoak doors, both in the natural tones of Rye and painted in Dakar. Rye and painted Dakar Broadoak cupboard doors evokes feelings of driftwood floating in the sea, with the distressed nature of the timber worksurface looking like it’s come from extreme weather conditions. Earthy tones of the timber and painted colour reflect the surrounding headland landscape.
The honesty of the industrial matt black cup handles mixed with the D handle all adds individuality the kitchen.
The Strata Granite, Carbon Grey Flamed worksurface ties in perfectly with the tone and texture of the slate floor to maintain the colour palette and to reinforce the natural elements of the scheme.
In contrast to the Rye oak kitchen, the design using Mornington shaker in both Slate and Partridge Grey doors holds on to the blue tones of the coastal look, but in a refreshing way so that the theme is not too predictable. Deep slate cabinets contrast with the Strata Quartz Rainstorm worksurface to introduce a feeling of ‘shell’ like quality, whilst the black satin T-bar and cup handle resemble nautical elements from a boat to add a subtle hint towards the location without overkill.
