With this particular project, the architect’s plans were very unusual, as he had designed the spacious new extension, to the back of this already large home, with not just one but three apex roofs to complement the existing roofline of the building. Along with three sets of tall glazed doors and numerous Velux windows in the new kitchen/dining room, we knew this was going to be a spacious room that would be flooded with light.

Finding the right layout for this lovely in-frame Shaker kitchen, taking into account both the position of the Velux windows and the roof details to ensure lighting would work over the island, took some time but keeping things simple paid off. It was important to centre the sink to create a real focal point in the room, with the feature quartz splashback and shelf above. This allowed space for beautiful brass stork lights over the sink run, matched by opaque glass and brass pendants over the unique Elica vented gas hob, positioned directly opposite the sink for balance. By choosing large glass and brass orb lights for the main lighting, that tie in with the other feature lights but have a different shape, the lighting remains a key feature in the room and ties the various areas together.

The kitchen was painted in Little Green Slaked Lime Dark, a soft neutral, whilst the contrasting island is a rich olive green Invisible green by the Little Greene Paint Company that works wonderfully with the greens of the lovely garden outside. Burnished brass handles from Armac Martin pick up the golden toned details used elsewhere and add a rich note to the paint colours.

A built in cupboard was turned into a pantry for food storage while the utility/laundry room just beyond the kitchen was fitted with matching cabinetry, with a cute little Belfast sink just on view through the open doorway.
