Plain English Kitchens
With design showrooms in New York and Suffolk, the Marylebone base of cabinet creators, Plain English Kitchens woos you from the start with cabinets painted exquisite shades of powder pink and buttercup yellow.
Their Instagram is a hive of kitchen inspiration including this standout blue-hued design. Using one colour across walls and cupboards could seem like an overload but this Dark Lead shade by @littlegreenepaintcompany creates a striking, soothing kitchen space. The simple worktable is a more interesting alternative to an island, with brass hardware adding a pretty element and elegant legs allowing light to flow. It’s the perfect blend of period and contemporary in one stylish space.
Based in South London, Pluck Kitchens design and create residential and commercial furniture at their studio and workshop.
This cleverly designed kitchen space in an Arts and Crafts home in Dulwich Village combines the soft green of Brockwell Moss with the coral pink of Ritzy cabinetry. The Brazilian quartzite worktop with its beautiful green veins could steal the show but instead marries everything together.
Blakes London include kitchens in their repertoire of home spaces they design and build.
Their soothing, slightly dreamy design for a north London period home used a soft, calming pallet of brass, marble and pale painted cabinetry (Paint & Paper Library’s Slate IV). The large island and high slab-shaker cabinets, almost to the ceiling are practical for family life yet softened by the neutral paint shade and the concrete-style flooring. Caesarstone’s sandy-pink Calacatta Nuvo quartz composite was chosen for the worktops and backsplash and two distinct styles of hardware, finished in lacquered burnished brass.
The trend for Scandinavian design has never really left us. With showrooms in Fulham and Hampstead, Sola Kitchens excel at creating wow-inducing Scandi-style kitchens. Simplistic cabinetry in pale, untreated wood isn’t all there is to Scandinavian kitchen design, which is about comfort, sustainability and minimalism.
This kitchen blends the best of luxurious Scandi style with sleek cabinet doors using thin vertical wood slats for texture and depth from our popular kitchen range is called Skog, meaning forest in Swedish. The combination with the softer pale painted cabinetry is striking. The custom-made Dekton worksurface is scratch, heat and liquid resistant. The icing on the cake is the heavy metal pendants by lighting and hardware maestros Buster and Punch.
