Ben is a keen cook who particularly enjoys experimenting with oriental cuisine.The large cooktop features two induction hobs and a gas wok hob – enabling Ben to indulge his passion.This is particularly useful when hosting dinner parties, a combination of appliances which also includes two ovens and a warming drawer ensures that Carla and Ben have all the practical essentials for sophisticated, elegant entertaining.The dining room which leads off of the kitchen creates a stylish area for more formal hosting. The combination of walnut, hand painted grey cabinetry and red accents gives this room a beautifully modern feel.“We love the warmth of the walnut with the cool grey painted finish” explains Carla. A light grey was used to hand paint most of the cabinetry, with a darker grey on the island.This mix of greys creates a contemporary feel whilst pops of colour – the red glass splashback and the walnut cabinetry – provide added personality. The aesthetics of the room mirror its dual purpose; a cool and relaxed space with sophisticated and stylish accents. Carla and Ben are thrilled with their new kitchen – designed for day to day life and sophisticated entertaining in equal measure.“The layout is practical for our family life and it also works brilliantly when we are entertaining. It switches easily from a crazy room full of children and dogs in the day to an elegant space to relax with our friends in the evening. Perfect.” “THE LAYOUT SWITCHES EASILY FROM A CRAZY ROOM FULL OF CHILDREN TO AN ELEGANT SPACE TO RELAX WITH OUR FRIENDS IN THE EVENING. PERFECT” Carla The breakfast cupboards by the dining table helps organise busy family breakfasts with the toaster, coffee machine and other accessories grouped together. Carla opted for a dishwasher drawer next to the sink specifically for glassware when entertaining. 55
