Walnut was used throughout the design, giving it a rich warm finish. Walnut and steel handles were incorporated alongside walnut-lined cutlery drawers. The cabinetry and island itself were also largely crafted out of walnut. The island contrasted walnut against light coloured hand-painted cabinets resulting in a striking appearance when you enter the room. The rich colouring of the walnut works beautifully alongside the light tumbled travertine floor tiles, giving a balanced overall aesthetic to the room. The Juparano Torrone granite surfaces break up blocks of colour in the room creating a more visually stimulating space.
As well as the room looking beautiful, it was designed to house hi-spec appliances to make cooking an enjoyable and stress-free experience. Alongside a Quooker boiling water tap, Wendy and Robin had an assortment of top-spec Miele products installed. These included a built in single oven, steam oven and combi microwave, two built in warming drawers, an induction hob and a fully integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher. These Miele appliances were designed to fit the kitchen in a way that resulted in the least need for bending and stretching.
This Kensington kitchen perfectly encompasses the beauty of using bespoke design; the entire room was created to suit Wendy and Robin’s precise requirements. From aesthetic details, to the positioning of the ovens, it was all designed to best suit Wendy and Robin.
