The clients asked our designer to create an inviting new kitchen with soft styling and a light, coastal feel. It also had to have a built-in bar area for weekend entertaining. Inspired by its setting, the colours throughout this kitchen are determinedly soft and natural, from the American Black Walnut island to the aged limestone floor and antique mirror glass behind the cooking zone, which is defined by a generous mantel. The cabinetry too, is painted in rich neutrals – with a splash of stunning sea blue on the full height cupboards which conceal the fridge and freezer. Floor "Aged Avabah" Martin Moore Stone.
