Dark Green Shaker Kitchen – The Brief
The design of the kitchen started with a vintage haberdashery cabinet that the client had already bought before the house renovation had begun. This was cleverly built into a tall bank of cabinets, providing open food storage and bringing warmth to the dark green cabinets, painted in Little Greene Obsidian Green. The Iroko worktops were chosen by the client to compliment the haberdashery cabinet.
The island incorporates a breakfast bar with open oak shelving and houses the dishwasher and sink, topped off with honed, pencil veined, Carrara Marble and a polished brass mixer tap with separate spray rinse. Vintage Holophane pendant lights bought from a flea market in New York add a unique and personal element to the kitchen design and provide task lighting over the island.
Brass handles, flat white metro tiles and encaustic cement hexagonal floor tiles finish off the kitchen along with the client’s vintage apothecary bottles and collection of succulents and palms.
"I found your kitchen company via a Pinterest picture – and BOY! And am I glad I did! I very much hope this is the end of a frankly frustrating search for a kitchen company that totally gets the look I’m going for, and at the right price point. When I say “industrial shaker” to any other company, they just look at me like I’m a few clowns short of a circus. When I saw the very same phrase written large on your website, I said a silent “hallelujah”. When I saw the exquisite cabinetry, I said “yes baby, I’m home!”
