The gorgeously green real home kitchen design that features a plethora of natural touches


With full-length doors connecting the kitchen to the garden, this striking green scheme, which features solid oak touches, and an interesting linear design, is a true natural beauty.

The owners of this property wanted their ground-floor space to be opened up, which would double the size of their existing kitchen, to create a large, light and open zone – perfect for both daily cooking and entertaining friends and family. For this dramatic renovation, the homeowners called upon Andrew Hall, chief designer and managing director of Woodstock Furniture.

Andrew expertly designed a fully bespoke, beautiful kitchen, composed of two primary areas – the working or cooking area and the dining zone. This linear aesthetic allows for the eye to be drawn directly along the room towards the full-length windows, which provides a stunning view of the garden.

With a change in level from the living room to the kitchen, the client wanted to ensure there was a barrier between the two areas, but one which would still allow plenty of light into the living area.

Bathed in this natural light, the bespoke cabinetry, spray-painted in Studio Green from Farrow & Ball, is offset by the white quartz worktops and oak-topped breakfast bar. The garden fences are finished in the same hue as the kitchen cabinets – ensuring the inside is linked to the outside – enhancing the ‘natural’ tone of the kitchen. The cabinetry features minimalist-styled doors, with framing and lambs tongue moulding; while this classic style was given a suitably modern twist through the addition of stainless steel handle bars.

The homeowners are delighted with the end result.  This is reflected in their choice of dining table, which is crafted from a large reclaimed artist’s drafting table.
