Whilst working alongside Hetherington Newman, Elite Design Studio have created a completely bespoke sophisticated kitchen by incorporating hand painted flat fielded design door cabinetry, striking smoked walnut veneers, book matched shark nose edge profile Calacatta Neolith worktops and antique brass detailing. As a result, the combination and balance of all these materials have showcased this show stopping kitchen to perfection. The island accommodates premium high specification Gaggenau gas hobs, which harmoniously accompany a bank of Gaggenau ovens within the tall bank of cabinetry running parallel alongside across the rear wall opposite. This too balances with the integrated tall refrigeration appliances and wine fridge which are located in the tall run of cabinetry on the adjacent wall.
The introduction of a bespoke banquette dining seating and table within a tailor designed timber frame niche, has opened up and maximised the seating space to its full potential. Keeping a soft and neutral colour palette throughout the rooms of the property has enhanced each space to flow seamlessly and effortlessly. By introducing subtle colour accents, beautifully designed unique bespoke cabinetry, carefully selected luxury brands and commissioned pieces, Elite Design Studio have impressively refurbished and transformed this property into a sophisticated, stylish and beautiful family home.
