Having been referred to us by friends, our clients knew they could ask our cabinet makers to craft exactly what they wanted. So when they came to visit us at our workshop in Shere, they bought twelve pages of sketches, photos & notes detailing all the features they had loved in their previous kitchens and lots of new details they wanted to include in their new build.
It was a pleasure to make & fit this elegant kitchen for a family building their dream home. Their focus was on clean functional design combined with classic craftsmanship.
Open-plan, spacious feel
A large & beautifully tiled hallway leads into the bright kitchen / dining / living room. The three areas are zoned perfectly with large stone tiles in the kitchen & warm parquet flooring in the eating & relaxing areas; with black framed sash windows at either end & doors in the middle opening out on to the veranda & garden.
Arts & Crafts
The whole house is filled with gorgeous vintage finds & antique wooden pieces with time worn patina. Craftsmanship was key to the look of this kitchen & achieved with a delicate cock bead framing, solid handmade shaker style cabinetry, painted by hand with oak interiors. There is fine caning in the bar stools, wood carving details & soft velvet upholstery on the dining chairs. A beautiful blend of old & new ~ it’s homely, artistic, calming, organised, stunning & it feels oh so perfect.
Warm natural woods, pure white worktop & the cool blues. The island and recessed cabinetry are painted in Blue Blood by Paint & Paper Library. The wall & base cabinetry are painted in Bone China Blue by Little Greene Paint Company. It’s a winning combination.
