Room of the week – colourful kitchen

March 16, 2011

This colourful kitchen, featured in the LivingEtc gallery, is perfect for London Design Week where we have seen lots of bold colours emerging.

This kitchen combines an exotic wood grain on the cabinets with industrial stainless steel and a bright splash of orange to make a very colourful kitchen.

The tambour unit featured in the corner of this room is a very good use of space and allows easy access to the contents.  If you prefer a minimalistic look a tambour unit will allow you to store small appliances for easy access, but by rolling down the shutter everything is hidden away.

The Alno kitchen shown below would be a good choice to recreate this look, available with a zebrano finish the main feature is the fantastic wood grain.  Another range called Alnoart Woodglas has an image of the veneer printed on glass before been bonded to the aluminium frame.  Add the handle less detail and it is a great on trend choice.

This weeks room features the Lem bar stool from LaPalma.  Although often copied the original remains the purist version and is a modern design classic and available in a number of finishes.  The beauty is in its simplicity, I have these in my own kitchen and wouldn’t have anything else.

Several other kitchen staples such as a Dualit toaster and Le Creuset cookware are used in this kitchen.  Both of this items may cost more than cheaper appliances but they will last for years – my own Le Creuset cookware is over 20 years old.

By combining three very different finishes this kitchen manages to achieve a stunning combination of textures and finishes and creates a kitchen that will stand head and shoulders above the crowd.
