CON­CRETE COOL

Grazia (UK) - - Paly List -

The kitchen, part of the open-plan liv­ing space, is a great mix of mod­ern ma­te­ri­als and retro charm. The white units are topped by a thick pol­ished con­crete work­top, the com­bi­na­tion re­peated in the kitchen is­land (con­scious­forms. com). The is­land was built in-situ as one piece and left to set for a month be­fore be­ing pol­ished. ‘I chose it be­cause I loved the fin­ish of con­crete, the tones and the thick­ness,’ says Caz. The sheen is picked up by the light that floods in through the floor-to-ceil­ing doors that lead from the liv­ing space to the gar­den. The con­tem­po­rary look is given a shot of retro style with an old hab­er­dash­ery cab­i­net (castleg­ib­son.com) and gold pen­dant lights from ar­chi­tec­tural sal­vage firm Retrou­vius (retrou­vius. com). The leop­ard vase is from lib­erty­lon­don.com.
