The lean-to at the rear of this traditional property had seen better days and our client, planning for her retirement in the not too distant future, wanted to create a space with a fresh, coastal feel, somewhere she could cook, relax and entertain friends. Removing the old fashioned back door and adding wider full height glazed doors and Velux windows flooded this once gloomy space and transformed the room. Keeping things light, the furniture was painted in Shirting, a soft white by Little Green Paint Company, and on the tall fridge and larder cupboards a summery blue shade, Designers Guild Cirrus Cloud. A peninsular with light oak worktop was included to separate the dining room from the working area, with an open bookcase for cookery books and space for two stools for friends to perch. Nordic pendant lights add to the mid century feel of the room, with a pale oak dining table and matching oak chairs picking up the colour of the breakfast bar. This is now our client’s favourite room in the house, she’s just waiting for the day she can enjoy it 24/7.
