The Johnson family, located in Penn, living in a stunning early 19th century, grade 2 listed house. The brief was clear, whilst the kitchen and utility needed to have a high quality traditional look, it had to have all the practical elements of a modern usable space. We also had to work alongside a local interior designer to make sure the design incorporated the clients taste to tie in with the rest of the home.
The starting point was the AGA from the original kitchen for which we needed to complement with our furniture. What was chosen were oak painted units in a Farrow & Ball Manor House Grey to give a subtle but light look to blend in with the AGA whilst creating a contrast against the oak floor.
Lights were used above the kitchen units to highlight to original mouldings and tall ceilings of the property. The kitchen has also been accented with classic pilasters, classic style handles and antique style mirrors on the tall units. This helps ensure the kitchen stays within the style of the property. The same has also been carried on through into the utility room with added benefits of a Belfast sink and raised washing appliances for easy access.
Finally to help with the different types and ways the family cooked, the AGA has been backed up with a set of Neff built in ovens.
Kitchen furniture: Callerton oak painted units with traditional pilaster features.
Appliances: Mostly Neff with a built in extractor and Caple Wine Fridge.
Other: a traditional ;looking light Quartz top.
