Our clients’ impressive eight-bedroom home is a stunning example of Georgian architecture set in beautiful grounds. Boasting an impactful reception hall, drawing room, library and kitchen among other spaces, the interior of this beautiful home is truly impressive. Equally impressive are the grounds in which the house is set, and Daval was commissioned to help our clients bring to life a new summer house built from oak by Huddersfield experts, Paragon Oak.
Colour: Talpa with Smoked Oak cabinet
With the oak structure of the summer house nearing completion, our clients tasked us with designing a kitchen to compliment the open, airy space they had created in their grounds. Our clients gave us a fairly open brief and the freedom to lead on the design and colour palette for the space.
What we created
Keeping the light, airy feel of more traditional summer houses, we designed the space with minimal, Scandinavian design cues taking the lead. Keeping the kitchen cabinetry to a neutral palette, we specified our Mayfair collection in Talpa for this project. Black knurled bar and knob handles were used to add a subtle industrial aesthetic to the kitchen, and we added a bespoke-made shelving unit to match, ideal for displaying glass jars, cooking oils, flowers and trinkets. A Quooker Pro 3 Fusion tap in matt black finished the look and supplies instant boiling water.
Our client also asked us to specify the furniture for the space to ensure continuity of the Scandi aesthetic, which saw us source wishbone dining chairs with black woven seats and a stunning whitewashed oak dining table, perfect for hosting fun summer lunches and cosy winter feasts.
The Hall Gardens summer house was a unique project at a stunning property. The space works beautifully in both summer and winter, and the kitchen makes the space fully self-contained to allow our clients to entertain all day long and all year round, without needing to make trips back and forth to the main house.
The simple yet elegant design of our Mayfair cabinetry lends itself superbly to this project, as it defines the kitchen space with a subtle use of muted colour, while at the same time letting it exist in the background while the stunning oak framing takes centre stage.
