The Balham Kitchen

A quirky deVOL Shaker kitchen in a beautiful Victorian terrace on a leafy street in the very lovely Balham, South West London. This kitchen was full of sunshine and charm, an eclectic mix of interesting things collected by this couple just added to the authenticity of the room. Beautiful pieces of antique furniture and a superb concrete worktop and floor all made this kitchen seem very settled in its space and not ordinary in any way. The kitchen and utility are both painted in 'Pantry Blue' with Bella Brass door furniture and brass taps in the utility. The couple who own the house sourced the concrete worktops locally and they work perfectly with our Shaker furniture.

The back of this end terrace has been completely opened up to reveal a huge, bright and very light room with a really cute little utility just popped on the corner, behind glass doors but very much on view. The couple wanted a sociable, comfortable kitchen that wouldn't go out of style and would stand a good deal of use. They loved the finished result and although they had only just moved into the fully renovated house a month before the photoshoot, it looked like they had lived there for years.
