About the project

Nestled in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, this grand old manor house has been renovated and styled to create an idyllic family home and what a triumph it was.  As you enter the beautiful village of Thornborough, the house is tucked away behind wrought iron gates and is the home to our wonderful Shaker kitchen.

The room with it’s vaulted ceilings and exposed beams was light and airy. The kitchen which on this occasion was designed alongside our clients interior designer was a vast space, which is quite tricky to design finding that perfect balance of just having the right amount of cabinetry and not overcrowding the whole room, keeping it simple and making sure everything is in just the right spot.  The dresser was a complete statement piece, painted in Farrow and Ball ‘London Stone’ with the handles being a dark leather, a real compliment.

Our client choose a 6 oven Aga in black with a plastered mantel, manufactured with specific shelved compartments for those everyday herbs and oils to nestle on, with pan drawers sitting either side and a mantle shelf above all painted in Farrow & Ball ‘Skimming Stone’ completed the country look.  A large island sat opposite with ample storage and adding plinth lighting gave a halo all around.. Within the kitchen was a walk-in larder, hidden behind the doorway which blended in with the walls , now amazing is that !

A truly fabulous kitchen which sat perfectly in this house and with its incredible selection of vintage and modern pieces, it just felt like another world.
