Countryside Contemporary

This summer, let natural daylight into your home and create a bright and airy space for cooking, eating and relaxing.

The latest kitchen project from Barnes of Ashburton is a perfect example of an open plan space with kitchen, dining and living areas.

This U-shaped kitchen design, painted in three tones from Farrow & Ball, is bathed in natural light harnessed by a feature window.

A large curved, central island unit provides a place to sit as well as an additional food preparation area and valuable storage. Shiny granite worktops (in ‘Glam White’) further reflect natural light, creating a fresh, modern look. The wall units are painted in the same shade as the walls (‘Skimming Stone’) so that they blend seamlessly. This clever optical illusion creates an uncluttered look and a harmonious contrast to the darker base units in ‘Dove Tale’.

A similar size kitchen design, hand-crafted from limewood, costs from £30K.
