Perfect country cottage

The catalyst for the kitchen revamp for this perfect chocolate box cottage in the Nadder Valley was a new window.  The client Chloe admitted that this was the sole reason for the redesign of the kitchen as previously an Aga had resided where the beautiful fluted sink now sits and meant that the kitchen was extremely dark and closed in.  She admits that her kitchen was not an easy space to design and wanted to use a local company who would come and see the space first hand and to work with Chloe and Jamie on optimising it’s potential.

Nick created a kitchen that while still only limited in size managed to squeeze in everything they required all the while retaining a freestanding, loose look that was perfectly in keeping with the rest of Chloe’s home.  ‘We didn’t want to have everything hidden away and wanted to showcase our mugs and pretty tea caddies, so Nick designed our cabinetry to be a mixture of open shelves and storage with reeded glass doors, we have the perfect amount of storage; the pan drawers are a revelation and we particularly love the narrow little cupboard for chopping boards.  Best of all Nick has managed to create a greater sense of space with the clever use of narrower cupboards and the shortening of the island.’

The clients picked out the Arabescato marble worktops they wanted a natural stone, which was an expense but they say they will never regret it as Chloe loves the bold patterning especially when paired with the oak, real stone just has such a depth to it and a sense of history somehow.

Choosing the colours was also relatively easy, Chloe had always loved the idea of using Farrow and Ball ‘Studio Green’ for the cabinetry and the finding the right pink became a bit of an obsession of hers (along with the fluted sink) but eventually discovered Paint and Paper Library ‘Temple’ which has just the right hint of grey to prevent it from becoming too sickly.  ‘The colours work so beautifully together’, and Chloe goes on to say that ‘as with the sink , we feel happy every time we look at it!’
