    Chic, contemporary kitchen

    Simple, Shaker-style cabinetry? Check. Clean, all-white décor? You got it. There’s a clapperboard shed in the garden too… Has to be Scandi, right? Hang on a sec, though – look at that mirrored kitchen island, the careful edit of offbeat artwork and the trio of oversized glass pendants. The sleek, linear shape of the space and the vast glass doors are hardly minimalist either. Nope, this is a modernist take on a classic design, pared-down but perfectly presented –  a gleaming scheme that deserves a gold star.

    Offbeat storage solution

    Who says you have to have storage systems or shelving to house your stuff? These stacks of books and magazines in neat, organised piles do it for us. And why hang pictures, when you can lean artwork in curated groups against the wall?

    Admittedly, this more casual approach may not be an option with curious Junior Livingetcs running around… But this laid-back style does have its advantages: your things are easy to access, arrange and then rearrange as the mood takes you; you can experiment with displays amd show off your natural artistic flair – without drawing too much attention to it; and, hey, you can instantly see whatever it is you’re looking for…

    What we particularly love is the way all the rectangular frames, linear wood panelling and centrally placed TV contrast with the soft and rounded B&B Italia vintage sofa and ottoman and Eero Aarnio Tomato chair. We feel very at home and at ease. Beautiful!

    Ah, the British summer – one day you’ve got your swimmers on, the next you’re rummaging around for a fleece. Just as well our interiors are suited to all conditions, such as this fab, spacious living area. In the light-filled atrium to the rear of the space, tropical plants add a jungle-style edge, while the contemporary wood burner in the seating zone will keep it cosy and warm whatever the elements throw at us. Add a few Fornasetti candles for ambience and voilà – a chic, weather-proof room for all seasons.
