Devon Home is a biannual publication that delves in to the homes of Devon and reports on some of the county’s more inspirational properties and explores the designers that make things happen. Crammed with interest, Devon Home magazine covers all sorts, meeting top designers along the way and revealing all manner of locally made products and services including interior design.
In the more recent Autumn / Winter publication we were overjoyed to find one of our Barnes kitchens featured with four pages of lush imagery showing the kitchen makeover in a fine Georgian town house in Chudleigh Devon. It is always great to see our handmade wooden cabinetry selected for publication and to appear in Devon Home magazine was a complete surprise.
This project included both a contemporary kitchen makeover and a study interior re-design within the Georgian town house. The main objective with the study was to create an additional assortment of storage space so bespoke cabinets were designed and built to blend in alongside the existing original Georgian features. See more of our study interiors here.
When it came to kitchen design there was lots of space and natural light to showcase the fitted wooden furniture which was coated with Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone paint. The handmade cabinets provided a variety of storage including shelves, a walk in pantry and enclosed racks for food storage including a nifty spice rack.
Overall the article in Devon Home magazine illustrates well how space at home can be redefined to create practical functional living space whilst retaining the charm of the natural features. At Barnes of Ashburton we do more than design and make hand crafted kitchens, our interior design extends to almost any other room in the house, from bedrooms and living rooms to boot rooms and utility areas.
Back to the Devon Home publication, where you can see an example of our interior design where we have worked in harmony with the period features of the building to create a calming yet functional living space. See more of the Georgian Town House kitchen makeover here.
