We took our design inspiration for this luxury artisan kitchen from the existing features at the property to create a connected look. The internal doors leading from the hallway into the kitchen gave us a strong contemporary edge which we incorporated into the circular motif of the kitchen cabinet door design. We replicated the room skirting design and added to a central island, then matched the colour of the open display shelving and bar top to the existing chocolate walnut finish on the floor.
From the early stages of the build we collaborated with the client and recommended a budget for their luxury artisan kitchen. Consideration of the budget influenced the kitchen design. We not only design but also handcraft all of our bespoke kitchens back in our workshops so we are well-versed in value engineering our creative ideas.
We designed the kitchen space to be a fusion of modern and traditional. Look beyond the sympathetically detailed cabinets that complement the home’s classic style, and you find a host of high-tech accents. The Quatreau touch tap serves up boiling, chilled, sparkling, hot and cold filtered water; curved cabinets incorporate a MasterCool wine conditioning unit. We also ran ducting under the kitchen floor to connect the Westin downdraft extractor and used the ceiling space above the handmade kitchen island for stylish pendant lights.
Every element of this luxury artisan kitchen was carefully considered to create a coherent, joined-up decorative scheme. We sprayed all the kitchen cabinets in lacquer for a crisp, hard-wearing and easy-to-wipe finish, specially mixed to match the Farrow & Ball paints used throughout. Cabinet doors featured a specially commissioned sculptural handle, concealing pantries and built-in fridge-freezer. We even colour-matched the wooden floor sample the client provided in the timber breakfast bar and display shelving either side of the wine cooler.
