This kitchen balances a daringly dark blue with white walls for a rustic, contemporary look

deVOL have created a perfect balance of colour, light and shape in this kitchen. The designers have selected the company’s standard sized cupboards of the Real Shaker range, but used to a deep, moody Pantry Blue to take this traditional style into the 21st century.

Crittall style windows and crisp white wash walls neatly balance out the dark blue cabinetry to create a cool space that feels open and light, while the dark wood herringbone flooring, Bella Brass hardware and deVOL’s own Aged Brass mixer tap adds a warming, homely tone.

The central island houses a traditional farmhouse style sink and a dishwasher and on the far side – creating a practical preparation and cooking area for the homeowners – while the near side of the island presents a cute, casual breakfast bar and some characterful open shelving, that can be used to display the homeowners own selection of books, bowls or antiques and gives the kitchen a personalised touch. The run of cabinetry has a black range cooker integrated into the centre, while a glass countertop cupboard and single larder cupboard provide plentiful storage and further display opportunities.

Pale Carrera quartz worktops run across the island and far cabinetry and lift the deep Pantry Blue furniture, for a lighter, modern look. Quartz is a great practical option for homeowners with a penchant for natural stone; it’s available in a variety of colours and finishes and boasts anti-bacterial properties.
