Kitchen, Surrey

This unusually triangular-shaped kitchen is part of a large extension project, added to a Victorian property near Guildford. The feel of the space was to be simple, calm and fresh as the owners have a pared-back, minimalist style. Working alongside their kitchen designers my role was to create a colour palette, choose tiles and paints, lighting, additional furnishings and give practical design advice that fed into the overall kitchen layout.

Flooring was important as the Clients wanted to continue the tile outside the huge 3m sliding glass door window as external paving, the Taupe Arabello porcelain tile with it’s warm tone and matt texture from Floors of Stone provided just the right surface. Units were in Pavilion Gray and pared with the elegant, blue gray of De Nimes both from Farrow & Ball and we warmed this cooler scheme with walls in Little Greene’s China Clay. All the wood details are in rich walnut that again worked to bring warmth and a soft luxuriance to the space. The comfortable TV corner of the room is defined with a blue and cream, bespoke Jennifer Manners rug and cushions in Kate Forman’s bold Kenji pattern lend a pop of colour.
