Beautiful Surrey Country Home
The living space, extended by a green oak orangery, was large enough to incorporate a generous kitchen, a twelve seater dining area and a perfectly named ‘snug’. Leading off the living space we designed a utility and boot room including a bespoke ‘dog house’ for the owners Labradors, one of whom produced a litter of the most beautiful black puppies soon after….hard to leave without one tucked in our pocket!
The central kitchen island as seen overleaf is one of my all-time favourite designs. The large sweeping curved lines, with stunning granite surface and oak inlay, creates a real showstopper and an interesting space that is warm, inviting and uplifting.
The design and detailing in this project are key to the aesthetic of the room and the house. This design is all about effective use of space. Away from the central island and storage wall, the more functional elements of the kitchen including an Aga are housed. Although beauty is essential in design, functionality is as important. When I design, I do so to enhance my clients’ lives, aesthetically and practically, and of course to add value to their homes.
