Our client lives close to Hampstead Village in north London in a house built to their specifications around 18 years ago. The style is a fusion of Nash meeting Cape Cod, combining clever use of brick and clapboard with one annexe. They wanted a bright, classic-contemporary, countrified kitchen, which would blend seamlessly with their living room with views onto the garden.
The room was extended backwards and a huge, glass roof was introduced with a clever choice of colours and finishes, bringing what had previously been a dark, narrow area to life.
We made this timeless design by using plain, front-framed units with Shaker-style doors, which were hand-painted in a bespoke, sage colour we prepared ourselves. A tambour door was put in next to the sink run which is perfect for housing everyday appliances like the kettle and toaster – keeping the runs of work surfaces clear while allowing easy access when they are needed.
