Look Around a Kitchen Where Marble is Reimagined as Modern



Look Around a Kitchen Where Marble is Reimagined as Modern

We recently visited our clients in Maida Terrace to see how they had settled in to their newly restored Victorian townhouse, while also taking the opportunity to photograph the now lived-in kitchen where, thankfully, the marble had survived two years of cooking and company.

Marble is clearly defining material in this kitchen and everything else was designed around it. The rich metallic veining unique to Paonazzo Carrara marble is the perfect complement to the deep brass detailing on the cupboard and drawer handles.

Marble is used across the kitchen island, the counter tops and the splashback. Such an abundance of marble evokes a Roman palace, yet the design itself is firmly contemporary. Combining natural materials with current techniques creates an exciting contact not just in appearance but in association.

The mesmerising pattern of this herringbone parquet floor could have easily distracted from the delicate natural texture of the marble but the use of a subtle grey timber makes that that your eyes are drawn towards the most important details.

This tap is not as simple as its elegant appearance suggests. Hidden within the custom made brass body by Yardley Bespoke Metalwork is a Zip Water tap that provides instant hot, chilled and even sparkling water.

Our client’s commitment to the white and brass colour scheme is well represented by their cup!

Despite all the space added that was added by the rear extension, hiding away clutter will always be a challenge. The stairs up to the ground floor offered the perfect opportunity for some stealthy storage, with precision cut cabinets that disappear behind flush, handle-less doors.

At DGA, we believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home. If your home’s heart is broken, call us now on 020 3553 8285 or email [email protected] to find out how we could fix it.
