COUNTRY CLASSIC VS CITY SLICKER

 

Two contrasting London kitchens, both channelling pared back simplicity and understated elegance, reflect the enduring appeal of the open plan kitchen/living space

Kitchen 1

Classic cabinetry and hand painted joinery (by Colin Latter Kitchens) are used to blur the distinction between kitchen and living spaces to create a welcoming, versatile open plan setting for dining, relaxing, socialising or working from home. Natural finishes and sustainably sourced materials offer warmth and authenticity, while the soft grey (French Grey 162 - Little Greene) conveys an understated elegance and sense of calm. Brushed, engineered-oak boards (Jordan Andrews) and solid, oiled-oak worktops add texture and depth while french hinges, brushed chrome hardware, Perin and Rowe brassware and Fisher & Paykel and Caple appliances keep the look up to date and provide contrast juxtaposed with the traditional look of the AGA range cooker.

 

Kitchen 2

Sleek handleless cabinetry (Howdens - Clerkenwell Handleless in Matt Grey) paired with composite marble worktops and splashbacks (NILE - Carrara) bring sophisticated serenity to this open plan living space. Exposed black lighting cord, graphite brassware and slick Bosch appliances create contrast and edge, styled with pops of colour and contrasting brushed brass pendants to add warmth and a touch of old school glamour.
