Diane Berry talks ‘boundary pushing’ design and receiving her place on 2018’s official d-list

Following the official launch of the 2018 d-list, we spoke to verified d-list designer Diane Berry of Diane Berry Kitchens about her design ethos, inspiration and what it means to receive her official blue tick…

Berry commented: “It is with such a sense of pride that I hear I am a selected nominee for the d-list ‘one to watch in the world of kitchen Design’ again. It fills me with a great sense of pride as my passion for all my working life is Design some 38 years now and I never tire of it. The way we live moves all the time form long periods of entertaining meant eating out to now eating in. So many people cook and bake, and thanks to amazing TV shows all about food men and women are taking to their kitchens quickly followed by their children. So, my task is to always be learning trying new designs mixing materials and styles to make sure that clients kitchens are as individual as they are. I have watched so many kitchen designers use the cut and paste button and the same designs and finishes just get repeated, I love to lead by example and work hard to keep pushing the boundaries on kitchen design. I also photograph my work and feature it on the internet, whether on my own website or on the likes of Houzz, Homify and KBSA websites they are there to hopefully inspire other designers to dare to be different and give their clients variety. Kitchen Design is special and we designers can make peoples’ lives better by getting the detail right and doing a great job for our clients.”
