AGAINST THE GRAIN

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - The Trends -

The kitchen is part of an open-plan liv­ing-din­ing space on the ground floor of the house that flows out to a ter­race (with an out­door din­ing area), which is used dur­ing the sum­mer months. The oiled wal­nut units and gran­ite kitchen work­tops were al­ready in­stalled in the con­tainer house when it was de­liv­ered on site. ‘Our ar­chi­tect ad­vised us not to choose a white kitchen, even though it was a pop­u­lar choice at the time. He was right – there is a def­i­nite shift to­wards more tex­ture and tac­til­ity in the home. I was the one who chose the oil fin­ish rather than lac­quer for the cab­i­netry, as it has a more nat­u­ral look.’
