It seems I can’t get enough of deVOL kitchens, and I don’t think you lot can either. And today I have an extra special treat to share – the beautiful new kitchen belonging to British television and radio personality, Zoe Ball and her family. When we think of Zoe Ball, we no doubt all think of fun and vibrancy. She is the very epitome of contagious positivity and enthusiastic joie de vivre. So it comes as no surprise that this is exactly what her kitchen conjures up too. It’s a kitchen that is full of personality and colour that has family at its heart. Art and treasures are all over the place and they make this room so inviting, you can just imagine the frivolity that goes on here.
Take a Look
The simple deVOL Shaker cupboards form the basis of the kitchen design. Add soft colours, warm wooden worktops and stacks of storage and you have the beginnings of a recipe for a busy family hub. It’s so obviously the centre of organised chaos, where cooking and socialising go hand in hand.
The kitchen table, as always, is the centre of this room and deVOL even designed and built a bespoke bench seat too. Topped with lots of squidgy cushions, it cleverly creates a cosy little nook within a big open plan room, without sacrificing the communal feel. A place for family breakfasts or lovely intimate dinners or just a spot to lounge about. Plus there’s a tonne of storage underneath the lift up seats so Zoe can keep everything looking neat and tidy! With views out into an ancient walled garden, this secret hideaway in the impossibly pretty little village of Ditchling is the epitome of uncomplicated easy living.
The big Belfast sink looks out onto the village below, as the kitchen is up on the first floor of the property. And the open shelves on both sides, make sure that the books and collections are so accessible and pretty that they need to be on show. I love that the shelves are so crammed and entirely un-styled. Who has time for that!
Of course, the most eye-catching part of this room is the fabulous aqua blue ‘Tequila’ sign, no doubt a souvenir from a fun filled summer in Ibiza. And an invitation, if ever I saw one, to get the party started!
