Richmond | Scandinavian and Modern Parisian Influences
The beauty of choosing a bespoke kitchen designer is that they are able to design and manufacture a kitchen that is truly unique to you. This was the case with our latest project, having worked closely with a client to design a range of kitchen cabinets that delivered on several style fronts.
The kitchen in this project features in a whole house renovation in London has been designed to infuse Scandinavian and modern Parisian influences that transcends across transitional shaker cabinetry.
As the centre piece of a large kitchen/dining/living space, the brief was for the design to centre on the handmade Davonport kitchen cabinetry, which needed command attention but without overpowering the space.
Davonport designed a transitional style of shaker cabinetry that blended Scandinavian simplicity with the refinement of Parisian elegance. This was styled with contemporary accents and furnishings by the designer.
The kitchen features a large kitchen island, with a casual eating area and additional storage built in. Placing the hob on the island, allows the owners to be able to see out into the rest of the room, as well as remain part of any conversations while meal prep and cooking takes place, designed with deep pan drawers under the hob to make accessing cooking items, plates and additional crockery easier.
Tall, full-length cupboards bookend the sink area, with the addition of the far-left cupboard been a hidden door to a pantry. Designing it in this way provides an unerupted flow of cupboards that provide a sleek and linear finish.
The cabinets have been painted in Farrow & Ball, Skimming Stone, which brings to life one of 2024 hottest trends, cashmere kitchens. Warm and inviting, cashmere colours are the perfect choice for kitchens as the colour centres on evoking softness while not being too overpowering or striking.
Another feature of the Richmond is the oversized, eye-catching Buster and Punch handles which elevates the cabinetry even further.
