Cotswold Chapel Kitchen with traditional aga and slate tile surround

The Brief

Our client came to us with an ambitious project: to design a kitchen that accommodates a family of 6, without any overcrowding issues. The room itself was divided into small spaces with incredibly high ceilings, giving it a unique character. It was our design team’s job to make the most of that.

A heavy palette of colours and textures, including Farrow & Ball’s popular Down Pipe and Chappell Green, blended beautifully with slate, limestone and plenty of exposed oak.
