I tend to favour darker kitchens usually, but this cook’s kitchen in a gorgeous shade of lighter blue really caught my eye. It’s not playing to any current trends, it’s simply a shade that the owner obviously fell in love with. And who wouldn’t? The kitchen itself is within a ‘well-situated’ area that sits between Hampstead Heath and Primrose Hill in London. An area that is home to some really beautiful and rather grand Victorian architecture.

It’s a Classic English Kitchen by deVOL of course, painted in their own Trinity Blue shade. It’s perfectly suited to its location. Elegant, understated and wonderfully calming. It’s a soft traditional mid blue that makes no mistake that the owner has got style. It oozes simplicity and good taste and could soften the look of anything it touched.
The kitchen also seems to have everything you could want, from a huge Sub-Zero integrated fridge freezer, to a vintage pantry and a small copper rinsing sink in the island. Yet it seems so cleverly clutter-free.
The run of wall cupboards just above the main sink are something you don’t often see these days but it looks so pretty. Especially with glazed doors to bounce light around the place and allow you a peek at the family’s collection of kitcheny things.
The room itself is located towards the front of the house but has windows at both ends. This casts a beautiful light throughout the kitchen that creates the most wonderful atmosphere.
Other things to note are the Bum Stools by deVOL, the parquet floor and dark wooden vintage pantry which are all a really clever contrast to the pale cupboards and tiles. This combination
and mix of materials is what really makes this new kitchen feel particularly well considered and subtly unique. It is so worth spending time sourcing vintage pieces to break up a room, they can really make a difference to the finished look and always add personality and character.
Prices for a Classic English Kitchen by deVOL start from £25,000.
