London’s deVol kitchens sent me an email this week sharing this stunning shaker Kitchen in a victorian home in the heart of London. dreamy, right? i’m working away on my own kitchen remodel ideas, so it was great to get a peek at devol’s Bloomsbury WC1 Kitchen. their client opted to use Flint, a color from their bathroom range — so atmospheric and sophisticated, perfectly complimenting their lovely Victorian home. deVOL’s creative director, Helen Parker, explains: “The color somehow gave a feeling of complete authenticity, nothing in the room jarred, there was just an overall feeling of getting it ‘spot on’.” i’ll say!
devol’s Shaker cabinets feel simple and uncomplicated, and the choice of honed marble worktops and splashback look just perfect. my favorite bit is the marble backsplash behind the stove — just gorgeous. i also love the copper cabinet pulls and lighting fixture. The two open wall cabinets are an impressive feature, as well and allow their client to neatly display all of their favorite pots, pans and glasses.
The huge larder combination contains the fridge, freezer and a beautiful big pantry cupboard. not only grand, but is also extremely practical; it houses all of the pantry essentials, a microwave, a coffee making area, a honed marble cold shelf, two lovely and super spacious draws and a useful spice rack. i love the addition of devol’s painted Shaker peg rails for hanging mugs and utensils on, and a handy tray slot cabinet in the corner to store all of their lovely chopping and serving boards. Finally, the kitchen Island is on casters, making it very practical and easy to move about. Topped with Rustic Oak worktops, it’s the perfect finishing touch to this beautiful kitchen! kitchen goals, indeed.
