House & Home

(C. Jardin) #1
These homeowners were on a two-year sabbatical in
London while the design and construction happened so
they put their trust in us and we took that very
seriously. Creating a kitchen that felt appropriate for the look and
vintage of this 1920s Tudor-style house was the goal but we also
wanted to make sure there was plenty of room for the family of four to
cook entertain and be together. The cosy U-shaped window seat in the
breakfast nook is a favourite element: the leather is beautiful and the
Pendleton plaid pillows are a nod to one owner’s British heritage. I love
the round pedestal dining table. We designed a rectangular version
but the round one felt much more welcoming. When the project was
done the owners had us over for a splendid meal to celebrate. We had a
ton of fun drank too much and wound up dancing in the dining room!
