High glamour in the kitchen is becoming an enduring trend, particularly in kitchen diners that are designed for entertaining. In a country home it pays to take a subtle, sophisticated approach. ‘Try introducing elegant curves, exotic veneers and antiqued mirrored glass to lift simple painted furniture,’ says Martin Holliday, Founder of Chiselwood. Add a polished gold tap, copper knobs or a trio of nickel light pendants for a little extra luxe.
