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 and 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 and 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 and beautifully tiled hallway leads into the bright kitchen / dining / living room. The three areas are zoned perfectly with large stone tiles in the kitchen and warm parquet flooring in the eating and relaxing areas; with black framed sash windows at either end and doors in the middle opening out on to the veranda and garden.
Arts and Crafts
The whole house is filled with gorgeous vintage finds and antique wooden pieces with time worn patina. Craftsmanship was key to the look of this kitchen and 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 and soft velvet upholstery on the dining chairs. A beautiful blend of old and new ~ it’s homely, artistic, calming, organised, stunning and it feels oh so perfect.
Warm natural woods, pure white worktop and the cool blues. The island and recessed cabinetry are painted in Blue Blood by Paint and Paper Library. The wall and base cabinetry are painted in Bone China Blue by Little Greene Paint Company. It’s a winning combination.
