The clients had recently moved into their home, set in a rural location. The original kitchen, with dark brown walls and worktop, lacked light and personality, and with three separate breakfast bars had the feel of a canteen! Apart from insisting the new kitchen be light and airy the clients were happy to be led by the designer on style and colour palette. With two young energetic daughters the layout had to be flexible. The Milbourne painted range fit the bill perfectly, being both durable and available in a wide range of colours. White quartz worktops add to the visual appeal, whilst being very practical and the feature oak piece on the island adds a warm contrast.
This room is an unusual shape with much of the space being in a galley style. The designer recommended breaking up the colours to break up the lines and make a big impact with a feature island. The blend of parchment white and suede cabinetry down the galley is easy on the eye, with the cranberry-painted island injecting a lively splash of colour. The lower level area of the island is designed for the girls to bake at. The dining table is ideally situated in the bay window and creates a lovely focal point.
