The new kitchen now extends behind the fireplace into the rest of the room, however still remains separate from the dining area, desk space and lounge.
The defined ‘zones’ within the room encourage eye-contact across the interior, creating a more sociable space for the family to cook, relax and work in.
Before, the windows weren’t used efficiently; now, the layout has been designed so that family activities are directed towards the windows – making the most of the beautiful views.
The Kitchen Area
The kitchen area features black painted cabinets, which are complemented by leather door handles and a marble-effect countertop.
The vast rear wall is clad with vertical timber panels and softly lit with an LED strip, creating a relaxing environment to cook in.
The Dining Area
The dining area features a bespoke peg wall, where the family can display personal objects and add a sense of character and identity to the space.
The Lounge Area
This area is subtly divided from the dining area thanks to the wonderful hanging Kokedama plants, which Oliver had a lot of fun making. These add vibrancy, texture and a sense of magic and delight to the interior.
The colour scheme was inspired by a photograph of an urban-nature sunset (taken by Oliver), which is incorporated into the new lounge area. We painted the ceiling in a pale blue to lift the space and make it feel more bright and energising. These moods created by the different tones of blue are consistent throughout and are complemented by natural textures, patterns and greenery. Finally, the dark ink blue column with gold leaf insert creates a striking and mesmerising focal point to the room, where the family can cosily gather on a snowy evening and watch the flickering fire.
