The couple also reused their old dining chairs, as they still fit in perfectly and add a fantastic hit of colour. Along the wall runs a handy storage unit that doubles as a side table. Above, cool cube shelving keeps favourite reads out of younger hands, while lending an artistic feel to the space. Geometric tiles have been used on both splashbacks, behind the sink and oven. ‘These tiles feature our favourite things – colour and mid-century style,’ say the owners.
The white worktop is a simple contrast to the pine boards. For a lived-in look, the builder sourced the floorboards from a demolished Victorian house. ‘They give great character to the room,’ say the couple. The owners chose a feature wallpaper for the dining area to give the space depth and detail. ‘Wallpaper can work well in a kitchen,’ they say. ‘We went for a dramatic design and we love the feeling it gives you of walking into a woodland scene. Although the pattern is bold, the colour is a subtle grey, which brings a feeling of tranquillity to a large open-plan room like this.
Brighten up, breathe life into a stark white kitchen with eye-popping colours and fluid shapes. Canary-yellow accessories complement the pink and red chairs, while accessories pick out these colours, too. The rest of the scheme is white, but the colourful touches lift it into adventurous territory.
