A Beautiful Family Kitchen Inspired by Nature

We've got a beautiful family kitchen for you today, that takes it's inspiration from the outdoors with it's mix of earthy colours and natural materials. The setting: a new extension within a period property in a picturesque village location.

The client wanted to create a calm and light space for the family to gather, dine and relax. The new extension opened up the existing kitchen space to provide a large kitchen and dining area complete with comfy sofa's and folding sliding doors to the garden.

The in-frame style kitchen is based around a central island and hand painted in the muted tones of Slipper Satin and London Stone from Farrow and Ball.

The curved furniture allows the kitchen to flow and maximises storage space.

The island worktop is planked oak, the grain leading your eye to the beautiful garden views.

The Neff appliances and polished Emerald Pearl granite work surface to the sink run contrast beautifully with the light cabinets and stone tiled floor. The stainless steel elements such as the Franke Panto Tap, Blanco Supreme sink, pendant lights and handles help to tie the whole scheme together.

It's all in the detail: cockbead framed drawers with hammered britannium cup handles.

I adore this kitchen & am thinking of hand painting my shaker units either the slipper satin. I was just wondering what colour paints the walls are?

Thanks Orla! The wall paint was chosen by the Client but from memory it is Slipper Satin from Farrow and Ball, the same colour used for the perimeter units.
