Here is a sneak peek of recently photographed kitchens which will soon be featured in interiors magazines. (We hold off sharing the whole project until it has been published in the press.)
Hampstead Garden Suburb Kitchen
This kitchen belongs to a couple with a passion for cooking and sharing food from around the world. Set in a semi-detached house in a beautiful protected area of North London, the cabinetry is Brockwell Moss with a Ritzy island and London Plane larder. The design incorporates cutting-edge appliances, including a bespoke cupboard for a commercial grade self-cleaning oven. The original Arts and Crafts steel framed windows are painted black for a dramatic contrast with the white walls.
Clapham Old Town Kitchen
This calming kitchen diner in a Victorian terrace is located in a light-filled rear extension. This space is a beguiling combination of modern and antique furniture with Half Moon White and London Plane cabinetry sitting alongside a Victorian sideboard and other carefully chosen pieces. The homeowners wanted to avoid the feeling of a traditional bespoke kitchen, so opted for non-integrated appliances. The neutral palette includes wall paint by local colour expert Francesca’s Paints.
the pottery combemartin
Set in an Edwardian house in a leafy South West London suburb, this vibrant kitchen has been described by a journalist writing for Architectural Digest as a ‘rainbow hued delight’. The cabinetry includes three Pluck colours and the rich dark green wall paint is inspired by Bonnington Green. The design includes lots of storage for the family of four, plus a peninsula so meals can be prepped whilst facing the dining table. The Spoke shelves integrate the extraction and had to be designed to incorporate the room’s dado rail.
Dulwich Village Kitchen
This kitchen’s spectacular garden view influenced the palette with Brockwell Moss and Ritzy cabinetry framing the scene as you walk into the room. Set in a semi-detached Arts and Crafts home in an extension designed by Lipsinki Pates, the design includes an island which is a focal point, uniting the different areas of the space and a long run of Spoke shelves gives a light an airy feeling. This colourful kitchen has been featured in The Sunday Times and Domino.
Hollie De Cruz’s Family Kitchen
A recently renovated five bedroom Victorian semi in South West London is home to author and social entrepreneur Hollie de Cruz and her family. Hollie’s aesthetic for her open plan kitchen diner was inspired by filmmaker Wes Anderson and the scheme includes carefully balanced pinks, greens and yellows. The focus of the room is an island with a sink, seating area and bold terrazzo worktop from Diespeker and Co. The larder offers a flash of pastel pink with a Ruskin Blossom interior and two tone drawer units with London Plane add texture. Hollie’s kitchen has been featured in Elle Decoration and Ideal Home.
Cook and author Anna Barnett ’s kitchen is in a converted Victorian school house in East London. Our design includes an extra tall larder and a large kitchen island with Elm veneers pressed onto birch plywood. Anna sourced a marble worktop which complements the Elm’s beautiful grain and added texture with Venetian plaster walls.
Set in a Victorian semi in Dulwich, South East London this kitchen is an oasis of soft and subtle colours. The cabinets are London Plane and Half Moon White laminate, topped with Diespeker and Co terrazzo, and Ruskin Blossom is used playfully in the larder and open shelf interiors. Architects Campbell Cadey designed an extension which transformed the room from a long, poorly laid out galley kitchen to a larger, practical space that feels closely connected with the garden.
This is the kitchen of an individual who lives and breathes design. Louisa Pacifico is founder of Future Icons, a design consultancy, and recently turned her creative eye to renovating her four bedroom, 1920s house in south east London. The cabinetry’s colour scheme is Bonnington Green with Ritzy and London Plane. Our design includes a large island and double doored, two-tone larder. Louisa’s kitchen has been featured in Ideal Home.
Situated in the new glass extension of a ground floor flat in South London this Ruskin Blossom and London Plane kitchen is airy and light, speaking to Clever by Architectural Digest the homeowner says ‘the pink is so soft and easy to live with’. The worktop is white Corian and the homeowner sourced a natural cork floor. Though he slouches around like he owns the place, Ted the cat actually belongs to a neighbour.
With green Brockwell Moss laminate and Sweet Chestnut veneers, the materials and colours give this kitchen a calm feel and ‘beckons images of a lush meadow in springtime’. Our design includes open shelves and a single door larder which has received a lot of love. Ask Interiors Ltd transformed this Victorian terrace in North London and in doing so created the open-plan ground floor space.
Green Dragon Lane
This navy Atlantic Blue and Ruskin Blossom pink kitchen includes a Cherry wood larder, the soothing hues have been mention in Good Homes magazine. Set in a four bedroom house in North London, it is home to Winston the whippet who likes to camouflage himself against the microcement floor. The transformation of this 1930s house has been detailed in Real Homes.
This semi-detached Edwardian house in North London has been redesigned throughout by MW Architects who created a light filled open-plan kitchen that incorporates a walk-in larder, the impressive transformation has been featured in Ideal Home. The warm tones of the London Plane wood are balanced with the run of navy Atlantic Blue cabinetry.
This was a personal project for architect Ewan Graham who reimagined the layout of his flat in a Victorian terrace in South London and created a large open-plan living-kitchen-dining room. The space has a monochrome scheme with Coldharbour Grey laminate cabinetry and a concrete floor.
THE FASHION DESIGNER’S KITCHEN
When Amy Powney, Creative Director of sustainable womenswear label Mother of Pearl, renovated her northeast London Victorian terrace, she chose companies that share her desire to work in an environmentally friendly way. Her Pluck kitchen is Coldharbour Grey with London Plane wood and dramatically veined marble worktops. The creative eye of Amy and her photographer husband Nick is in evidence throughout and their beautiful home has featured in several publications including the Sunday Times Style magazine.
VERY PLUCKY BRIXTON KITCHEN
This is the kitchen of Pluck Co-founder’s Lloyd and Leila Touwen. The scheme inspired the ‘Morchella’ palette with London Plane wood veneers, Atlantic Blue and Ruskin Blossom pink laminate with a Juniper Corian worktop. The encaustic floor tiles are from Marrakech Design and the wall tiles are Tratti by Inge Sempe both from Domus The space featured in the Sunday Telegraph in an article on kitchen designers and their kitchens.
This five bedroom Victorian terrace in Leytonstone, East London belongs to a couple who are passionate about retro design. Having lived in the house for two decades with the same plain white kitchen cabinets they ‘wanted to treat themselves with something they truly loved’ so opted for vibrant Lido and Ritzy cabinetry. They are very delighted that the new design means their ugly boiler is finally hidden from view!
‘Bright, uplifting and fun’ is how the homeowners of this Victorian terrace in South London described their Pluck kitchen. Working with Unfold Architecture + Design they redesigned the ground floor of their house, replacing a navy blue shaker kitchen with this popping combination of Lido, Ritzy and a flash of London Plane. The space featured in The Sunday Times Home on the enduring popularity of pink and green interiors.
Walthamstow family kitchen
This colourful open-plan kitchen in a Victorian terrace in North East London is about family life. Our design includes a large larder and an extra wide peninsula to provide generous worktop space and lots of storage (nine drawers, three cupboards and the open shelves to be precise!). The palette is Effra, London Plane and Market Mustard.
In the pink at knoll court
This kitchen is a testament to the power of pink! Set in a modernist block in South East London, the Ruskin Blossom cabinetry makes the compact space feel confidently colourful. This small kitchen has made a big impact and was included in the Sunday Times Homes Best Pink Kitchen Designs plus the Pluck designer was interviewed about the project for Architectural Digest’s Clever.
Eger Architects remodelled this modernist family home in South London and created a new sustainable kitchen out of a space that was formerly an alleyway, as discussed in Clever by Architectural Digest. What’s particularly lovely and unusual is that we were able to source the London Plane for this kitchen from a local tree surgeon who had saved the wood from a tree that had blown down. This kitchen has also been featured in Evening Standard.
This is one of five kitchens for One James Lane, a new development of family houses in East London designed by Hogarth Architects. The monochrome scheme for each kitchen includes Helix Grey and Half Moon White laminate with a flash of brass in the handles.
Interior designer Claire Davies-Hobbs worked with a family of four to transform the kitchen in their newly extended Edwardian house in Moseley, Birmingham. The palette includes London Plane, Market Mustard yellow and Coldharbour Grey laminate. The angular rhombus tiles are from Domus and were inspired by a trip to Pompeii.
Clerkenwell Design Week 2019
At Clerkenwell Design Week in 2019 we added Fumed Oak and two laminate colours to our collection Lynette, a zesty lilac and a chalky yellow called Solon. We also launched Spoke, open shelves with diagonal supports inspired by Victorian bamboo furniture.
Clerkenwell Design Week 2018
2018 was the year we added Ritzy, a coral pink, to our colour palette and launched our larder (or pantry for American readers!) at Clerkenwell Design Week. More so than any other piece of kitchen furniture larders are about enjoying what’s going on in the inside as much as the outside. We are big fans of two-tone larder as you see here with London Plane doors and a Ritzy interior.
