Welcome to the March issue

As we hit the freshness of spring, and


start to shake off the last of those dreary
winter days, doesnt it suddenly feel like
everything just like every little thing
is possible again? Even the daily routine
of having a good breakfast and getting to
work without hitting transport issues
gets easier. You feel so much more
positive and energised, ready to take on
whatever it is that you need to. Its like

82 youve had a new lease of life, yet it


happens at this same time every year,

130 youve just forgotten how it feels!


So it is with this sense of new-found
vigour that has informed the making of
this issue, which is all about starting
anew with those interiors and building projects and planning it forward.
From organising the ultimate in bedroom storage in Behind Closed
Doors on page 140 to investing in multi-generational bathrooms in Look
Ahead on page 114 to the biggest Kitchen Trends for 2017 (page 82),
theres a strong dose of inspiration in here, so be ready to springboard
yourself into action as you read. You might not be able to stop yourself.
Our homeowners in this issue are as savvy and design conscious as
ever. From Mette and Chris Lowes overhaul of their listed Wiltshire
home in An Original Mix (page 24) they installed a contemporary look
kitchen which works so well in the space to the Allen familys sleek
cabinetry with copper undertones in The Soul of the Home (page 34),
these are real life lived-in family kitchens that look great but are 100 per
cent practical too. I also love the quiet sophistication of the Richardsons
kitchen in Worth the Wait on page 46 and the new look that the Joyces
managed to infuse into their space in Relaxed Elegance (page 56).
Meanwhile designer Hayley Robson of Day True Interiors has pulled off
a stunning kitchen with concrete textures that you can see on page 66.
Heres to new beginnings - and exciting and original projects!

A
HOMELY MIX
Bridged on to the Alpine
White island top, the
natural oak finish of the
breakfast bar offers
warm contrast
fter returning from a spell living in
Singapore, Mette and Chris Lowe decided
to give their home in Wiltshire a complete
overhaul. Having renovated nearly every
room in the house, it was time for one last,
but very important, project. The kitchen
was looking especially tired, and in real
need of an update, recalls Mette.
Given that their home is a listed Jacobean manor house with
the kitchen in a late Victorian extension, the project had its fair
share of challenges, involving planning permissions, plumbing,
heating, lighting and electrical work. As well as improving the
insulation, adding new underfloor heating and flooring, they also
took down an internal wall in the adjacent utility to create a larger
laundry room, removed a bulky water tank suspended from the
kitchen ceiling and added an underfloor wine cellar.
Although probably the most significant challenge was a design
one, as Mette explains: Im Danish and like Scandinavian sleek
minimalism, so we were very focussed on how to create a modern
kitchen which could fit comfortably into such an old house, she
says. The solution came in the form of bulthaup b3 furniture from
Hobsons Choice. Once we had seen the crisp look of bulthaup,
it was very difficult to look at anything else, says Mette. The
natural colours combine with clean lines to such a beautiful effect
and in a way that we felt would blend harmoniously with the
original stone windows and old timber beams of the room.
Working with Hobsons Choice design consultant Laura Warren,
Mette and Chris, have created a space designed for cooking and
entertaining. It works well when friends are expected for a casual
dinner or when the couples adult daughters come to visit, just as
it does when Mette wants to catch up on her laptop at the kitchen
table or watch the news on television. With a dining table and chairs

hat we choose to have and show


in our kitchens gives insight
into our lives and psyche, and
its a space in our homes that can
have real soul. Indeed, soul is exactly
what the Allen family have suffused into their transformed
family kitchen. The finished project reflects their family
history, the houses history and an intensely personal
journey through the years in their reinvigorated home.
Peter and I didnt want a sleek space, because the rest
of the house is a cosy family mixture, so we wanted our
kitchen to similarly reflect our years here. We decided on
copper, but we felt it might be too much everywhere, so we
added wood and stone to make it more unusual. They all go
together well, functionally and aesthetically, says Rosie.
Alongside the commemorative influences of the family
(Peter, Rosie, Lucy, 23, and John, 21), the history of the
house itself is celebrated here. The pine dresser was in the
kitchen when they moved in, and was built in to the original
house, so they struggled to bring themselves to repaint
it. But we went for it, and were absolutely delighted. In
the same vein, they had a local company make the 16-
arm chandelier from antique crystal. Another throwback
highlight is the walk-in larder that was converted from an
old lean-to. Previously, we had food in cupboards all over
and now, we just have one foodie heaven, she says.
For the Allens, evolving the more historic elements
into workable solutions for a new way of living was really
important. We loved our Aga and thought wed always
have one, but positioning the range in the middle of the
new island meant we needed to go all electric. Therefore,
we researched and went for the Everhot, explains Rosie.
The ambient heat from the range also keeps the new
Karndean vinyl floor warm, removing the need for
underfloor heating. We had second thoughts about
the planned wooden floor after visiting a friends, and
discovering that her lovely, hardwearing floor was, in fact,
vinyl. It is bespoke-fitted around the impressive, handmade
cabinetry to ensure its easy to look after, as well.
All in all, the family are absolutely thrilled with the
new kitchen space. Andrew from Woodstock Furniture
did the sketches, so we didnt need an architect, and he
and Alex guided the structural engineers and made it a
reality. Its amazing, the light flows in and bounces off
the copper, bathing everything in a rosy glow. Its like
were suddenly living in technicolour. ekbb

w hats not to love about living in the
leafy suburb of Twickenham? Claire
Richardson, a research director and
her husband Marlon, a partner in an
Advisory Services firm, had found the
ideal road they wanted to live on within
walking distance of the high street. It took us over two years
to find the right property to buy but when I walked into this
house, I just thought wow. It had high ceilings and such
a sense of space, everything Id dreamed of, says Claire.
The detached 1920s five bedroom property needed
renovating but when the family first moved in they were in
no rush to make any decisions. They needed time to settle
in with their daughters Scarlett, 11, and Violet, nine.
We wanted to create an open-plan style of living that was
contemporary but not too cold and clinical. The first thing we
decided on was to have a pitched roof on the extension with
gallery-style windows spanning across the back of the house to
frame the view of the garden and bring in light, Claire explains.
I took my time looking for the right kitchen company that
could offer us something a bit different. When I started talking
to Jane Powell, the designer at Roundhouse, about my ideas
on colour and design she was on my wavelength. I just knew
she would come up with a design that wouldnt just be a
standard kitchen layout, with blocks of units.
It was a perfectly proportioned room. I dont often get
the chance to design a kitchen with so much space and light
to work with. It meant I didnt have to compromise with
the layout and could include our largest pieces of bespoke
cabinetry like the double door pantry cupboard, Jane explains
At Roundhouse each kitchen is unique and the choice of
colour is a key part to the success of a design. We use Farrow
& Ball or Designers Guild paint but for Claires kitchen we
chose the French Grey range by Little Greene as that has
blended seamlessly with the walnut hand rails, Jane adds.
Its just a great space to hang out in whether its just the
four of us or were entertaining family and friends. Scarlett
and Violet sit around the island to do their homework and
we can catch up while Im cooking dinner. This is the place
in the house we all want to be, Claire says. ekbb

move, improve is often the best solution. And so it was for Jane Joyce and husband
Anthony, both company directors, when they began considering a move from their
early Victorian listed rectory in Lincolnshire, now that their children are grown up.
We decided that we would rather stay put and get this house just as we wanted it, says
Jane. Chief amongst their concerns with the house was the conservatory. It was a beautiful room
overlooking the garden, but not used enough too cold in winter, and attempting to heat it was like ripping
up pound notes because the underfloor heating was so inefficient, explains Jane. The kitchen was another
issue; the north-facing space was cramped and dominated by a large chimney breast, making it far from
ideal for their love of cooking and entertaining. Their solution? To replace the glass roof and one wall of the
conservatory with solid structures, add new super-efficient underfloor heating, and move the kitchen into the

Following up recommendations, they commissioned Chiselwood to create the new kitchen. To accentuate

The materials are the real heroes in this space which boasts
clean lines, multiple textures and striking lighting solutions
PICTURES gary summers I WORDS Molly forbes

s itting at the back of this period property in North London youll find a space oozing with
industrial charm and stand-out materials. Designer Hayley Robson of Day True Interiors
has created a kitchen-living area that is both aesthetically stunning and highly functional for
life with a young family and a dog. Mortex worktops and an extractor hood do the same job as
polished concrete, offering a hardwearing surface with gleaming edges and an interesting texture. It
adds a completely different depth to the space and feels very solid, explains Hayley. Contrasting with
the mortex, there are black wood textured units, polished plaster walls and a charcoal floor made from
herringbone engineered wood which runs throughout the whole ground floor and out into the garden.
The colour of the floor is elegant and contemporary, says Hayley, but the pattern and texture is
quite classic. It helps to make the space sympathetic to the original architecture of the house,
creating a smooth flow through the downstairs of the house and bringing the outdoors in.
Storage is key in any kitchen, especially for a busy family who enjoy entertaining, which is why
Hayley ensured plenty of space to house kitchen essentials in both sides of the island, as well as
creating a hidden home for a wine cooler, freezer, fridge and larder in the bank of tall units at
one end of the kitchen. Keeping the splashback, extractor hood and shelves clear means theres
an opportunity to display a bit of personality with art and accessories, explains Hayley.
Personality is definitely something that isnt lacking in this sleek and sophisticated yet cosy
space, proving that you dont need a loud colour palette to make a bold design statement. ekbb

PANTRIES
There is definitely a growth in
dedicated cabinets, says kitchen
designer Mark Wilkinson.
Breakfast cabinets, for instance,
with foldaway doors can be opened
for that especially busy time, with
everything at hand, and then
closed up again to keep this part
of the kitchen tidy while the family
prepares for the day. Alternatively,
the unit could be customised to be a
baking cabinet, with all the utensils
and ingredients inside, or even a
designated laundry area or cocktail
cabinet for smaller space kitchens.

latest style from Mark Wilkinson Furniture
which you can see in London at their Holland
Park showroom and in the North, in Harrogate.

DIVINE DECO
We are seeing kitchen dining tables
in rich glossy gold hues and beautiful
exciting hide surfaces and internals
appearing in sideboards and on
dining chairs, says George Khachfe,
CEO of Poliform UK. In the main,
interiors are all heading towards more
luxurious, chic finishes. We are finding
that marble and stone are replacing
lacquers and veneers on all surfaces.

CHECK YOUR BACK
Theres a real increase in clients asking for back
kitchens, says design director Richard Moore at
Martin Moore. Definitively not a utility room, this
is a purpose-designed space where busy cooks can
delegate prepping tasks, store china and glass,
keep wine and house extra kitchen appliances.

BEAUTIFUL MIX-UP
13
Long gone is the trend for a mono-look kitchen, as
kitchen designers have taken to mixing up materials,
colours and high and low looks for a few years now.
This is a trend we are going to see continuing for 2017,
expects Alex Saint of Kitchen Architecture: We are seeing
a really lovely merging now of vintage, contemporary
and industrial styles. Burnished metals, such as bronze,
vintage copper and brass and hot rolled steel bring an
industrial look to contemporary schemes. Designers are
mixing these metal finishes more than ever with bronze
tones standing side by side with steels and chrome.

THE ROUGH &
THE SMOOTH
This year, high shine metallics have
been replaced with antiquated, brazen
finishes, tying in with the rustic,
distressed look that continues to be
echoed around other areas of many
households, says Claire OBrien, head
of design at House of British Ceramic
Tiles. You will see metallics combined
with a matt black tile to create a
utilitarian look, or offset against aged
countertops for a quirky, unique style.

ESSENTIAL
INFORMATION
What to look out for when
purchasing a dishwasher

The energy label on the appliance


should give you most of the information
that you need. One of the key things
to note is the energy rating which
ranges from D up to A+++.

Annual energy usage is also a key


detail, especially for those looking to
make an eco-friendly choice. Its
measured in kWh and gives you an
idea of how much energy the model
would use in a whole year.

Finding out the water consumption


is also handy when trying to decide
which particular model would be best
for you. You can find out both the
annual average consumption and
the amount per cycle.

The noise level rating is measured in


decibels (dB). Lower ratings are best for
open-plan living spaces so that it is less
likely to disturb you. A model with a
ways with water figure around 40dB is super quiet.
A highlight bit of tech from
the DFN28320 freestanding

s multi-generational living becomes more popular, the


task of making sure our bathrooms have longevity in
terms of function is more important than ever. Whether
youre starting a new scheme from scratch or youre just
considering a few essential updates, there are plenty of
ways to introduce safe, practical showering, bathing and
bathroom use while still achieving a stunning design.
It is important to consider who will be using the
space, explains Georgina Spencer, head of marketing at
Roca Group, what their needs are now and how these may change in the future.
Simple measures such as a thermostatic shower mixer and taps will ensure safety
without compromising on design. A raised height WC looks identical to the
standard but saves anyone who is less mobile from having to bend too much.
A designer with experience in future proofing can discuss all the options and
help you select the most appropriate products. These can include smart digital
showers with remote control, cool-touch thermostatic controls, seamless
anti-slip shower trays and wet rooms, electronic sensor taps, sensor lighting,
walk-in baths, easy-clean sanitaryware and state-of-the-art shower toilets.
If youre catering for a large family which includes all ages, says Sarah Harris,
brand manager at Zucchetti.Kos, then a bath and shower will benefit all
generations. The Kos Water Wall multifunction shower with thermostatic mixer
and seat offers comfort while being a solution for those less able to stand.
Look at the positioning of sanitaryware and furniture too, with variable
frames that can be adjusted to height and different levels of wall-hung storage to
keep medicines out of harms reach. Built-in laundry units are also a good idea,
as they free up more floor space, should walking aids be required in the future.
Making a bathroom future proof is a good investment, adds Sarah.
Bathroom products have moved away from typical designs associated with
the accessibility market and retailers are putting design at the forefront.
Technology is also rapidly changing and bathrooms are quickly getting in on
the act, as Aaron Bourne, senior industrial designer at Aqualisa, confirms: One
of the many benefits of the smart home is that the tech itself is integrated fully,
or wireless, so it can be a subtle complement rather than an addition. ekbb

when the bathroom is installed too.

Mixing materials of the brassware,


finishes of your furniture and

to add layers of detail. It also gives
you the chance to change the look by
simply changing one element rather

ESSENTIAL bathrooms

T ake one misshapen bathroom with architectural


features and a somewhat long and narrow space
and you have a challenge thats fit for an expert
bathroom designer. To paint the bigger picture,
this is a large, semi-detached listed property
which is set in beautiful mature woodlands in
Bristol. While in the process of redecorating other
rooms in the house the owners, who live here with their young
son, happily chose to work with Chris Payne, designer at Ripples,
who set out with a vision: I wanted the style to be simple and
contemporary, while also recognising the strong architectural style
of the property. In the original design brief, the bathroom was
originally considered as the main bathing space however, while
not an en suite, it was decided that it should be for the owners
son. The plan was to let it be generous, simple and capable of
adapting to suit different people as the family grows over time.
One of the stand-out architectural features in this room are the
windows, although they couldnt be altered due to the house being
listed. Chris explains: Fortunately the original leaded arts and
crafts-style windows were large and in good condition. Although
west facing, plenty of light floods in during the day and the setting
sun is captured beautifully through them. Purposefully placing
a large mirror opposite the window bounces this light around
the room and helps enhance the feeling of spaciousness.
In a smaller and more awkwardly shaped room like this,
making sure theres sufficient and capacious storage space without
compromising on style is an important factor. Here, the left hand
side wall of the room has been built out to allow supply and waste
pipes to service the basin and shower, while also allowing niches
to be recessed for shower storage and basin mirror. Theres also
plentiful practical storage beneath the basin in a suspended
drawer unit, says Chris. All-in-all, the finished design achieves a
natural flow with spa style combined with everything they need
for a great bathing experience, morning, noon or night. ekbb

ESSENTIAL storage

t heres nothing quite like the thrill of buying a new item


of clothing whether its a sale bargain or something
youve been saving up for, the excitement of getting
it home, unwrapping it and trying it on never tires.
However, when it comes to storing said purchase, do you
feel stressed at the thought of a disorganised wardrobe
space, bulging drawers and stacks of shoes piled up? The answer is
to invest in a bespoke system tailor-made to suit your every need.
To create an elegant yet practical space, advises Kiran Noonan,
managing director at John Lewis of Hungerford. You can never go
wrong with the principle of keeping it simple. A good designer will
group the storage for easy dressing in the morning, while bearing in
MADE TO MEASURE
Above Go Modern has one of the largest ranges
of Italian-made fitted and freestanding wardrobes
in the UK, all of which can be built from two doors
wide to as many as needed, with a huge choice
of internal storage options. The specialist brands
they work with include Novamobili, whose Lux
collection starts from 1,480 perfect for fitting
into sloping roofs, corners and awkward spaces
LIGHT TOUCH
Below The hinged door Aria collection from Lema
is characterised by a thin frame in bronze anodised
aluminium enclosing a panel, which is available
in reflecting bronze, 10 lacquered colours or
transparent. You can customise the depth and

mind the visual impact. Avoid lots of small sections, as this can end
up looking untidy, but have a good range, from shallow drawers
for lingerie and ties to deep drawers or shelves for winter knits.
Everyone is different of course, but the essentials can include
hanging rails for shirts and suits, a long hanging area for dresses
and occasional wear, pull-out shoe racks and compartments for
jewellery and accessories. Other options to consider include tie
rails, trinket drawers, full-length mirrors, internal LED sensor
lighting and even walk-in wardrobes with wall-to-wall storage.
The key is to look at all the items you need to store and how easy
they are to find. We tend to spend more time in our bedroom
than any other room in the house, says Jonathan Stewart, owner
of Wharfside, so who wouldnt want to make it a space to relish
spending time in? Creating a bedroom thats beautifully designed
and that works hard behind the scenes with clever bespoke
planning can greatly enhance both your home and lifestyle.
Bespoke storage offers a variety of heights, widths and depths as
well as hinged or sliding doors, so you can have a handcrafted piece
of furniture that ensures there is a place for everything, creating
a relaxing, clutter-free bedroom. The beauty of made-to-measure
storage is that you can slot it into any space, even tricky areas such
as sloping ceilings, alcoves and uneven walls. Good designers
will cut to fit and offer a variety of internal solutions to suit.
As well as fitted furniture, you can also produce your own
selection of bespoke standalone pieces such as a storage bed, chests,
tallboys, units and shelving. Think about the overall look you wish
to achieve and by sticking to one style or colour theme, you can
create a co-ordinated feel with calm and order at its core. ekbb
