This kitchen is actually that of one half of nest interior design – Lucy. The requirements list was lengthy (naturally!) and included dark navy units, a contemporary worktop, no wall units, flexible lighting for day and night, a copper sink and aged brass fittings. The overall feel was to be one of timeless & classic cabinetry/furniture rather than a glossy kitchen.
It needed to be sympathetic to the period of the house and provide both a functional space in which to cook and a relaxing and welcoming space in which to relax as a family and entertain. With no wall units and dark cabinets, space planning, finishes, lighting and clever storage were key.
