A light-filled Cotswold Kitchen with a Cook's table

A Cotswold Manor Kitchen

GLOUCESTERSHIRE

Described by the estate agent as “A handsome Grade II Listed Country house set in a beautiful secluded valley”, this handsome Cotswold stone home sits on the border between Wiltshire and Gloucestershire within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Dating from the early 19th Century, the client wanted to pay tribute to the history of the house, by creating a modern interpretation of a traditional kitchen.

Working on this project with Lucy Cunningham Interiors, a winning combination of attention to detail and craftsmanship have created a kitchen that is both functional and has aesthetic appeal, while the use of natural light plays a pivotal role in defining its character.

The design makes best use of the abundant natural light from a large sash window. One of the hallmark features of the design is simplicity; clean lines, and refined classic details create a sense of understated elegance. Every element, from cabinetry to countertops; appliances to hardware have all been meticulously considered to make the most of a modest sized room.

Cook’s Table Island

To complement the pale hand-painted cabinetry, the centre piece of this kitchen is the Cooks table island. Characterised by the use of natural materials that age gracefully over time, it creates a stunning focal point.

The base is crafted from hand polished oak, while the worktop is made from a combination of planked sycamore, with a three-quarters of the tops length being antique Nero Zimbabwe Granite, creating a perfect hard wearing prep area.

Deep drawers include cutlery inserts, while a unique seating recess with shaped brackets to both sides creates an informal dining space at one end of the table.

A channel through the table legs allows cables to run through to provide electrical supply for the plug sockets and the fully integrated Sub Zero Wolf warming drawer.

This traditional bespoke kitchen features a harmonious colour palette inspired by nature. Soft neutral ivory provides a timeless backdrop, while accents of deep blue punctuated with pops of red found in the textiles and accessories infuse the space with depth and character

Attention to Detail

Every detail has been carefully considered, from the traditional style cabinetry to finely crafted hardware.

The tiles chosen are a nod to traditional blue and white Delft tiles, while the Portuguese Blue Lacanche range cooker and Lacanche Brasserie Hood are a more modern addition with a timeless aesthetic.

Either side of the Shaws of Darwen Belfast sink are wall and base cabinets.  A Quooker tap gives instant boiling water while LED lighting has been included to the underside of the wall cabinets creating a warm ambience in the evening.  A Fisher & Paykel fully integrated fridge drawer with two drawer fronts sits to the left, and a fully integrated Miele dishwasher to the right.  The whole zone carefully designed to create a highly functional kitchen.

Included is an integrated pull out waste bin in the run of base cabinets, with a rebated hole through the worktop surface above it to allow for waste disposal.  A flush removable sycamore worktop bin lid has been designed and stained to match the Cook’s table island work surface.

By embracing natural light, warm materials, meticulous detailing, and a harmonious colour palette, this design creates a sanctuary where family and friends can gather, connect, and cook
