WHITE & Wood

Living Etc - - DESIGN ⁄ PROJECT -

Noth­ing spells out a per­fect part­ner­ship like white and wood, which work ef­fort­lessly to­gether to bring their strengths to the ta­ble. White makes rooms look lighter, brighter and more airy, al­low­ing other de­sign el­e­ments to take cen­tre stage. Wood brings an abun­dance of warmth, char­ac­ter and tex­ture, tak­ing the cool edge off an all-white pal­ette. to­gether, this pair­ing strikes a re­strained con­trast, re­sult­ing in a mod­ern scheme with a long shelf life.

Project de­tails Val­cucine strikes the per­fect bal­ance be­tween wood and white in its Forma Men­tis kitchen, where rich wal­nut wrapped around white cab­i­nets cre­ates a co­coon­ing ef­fect. Wood is also prac­ti­cal and pro­vides a warm back­drop. The less-is-more ef­fect of han­dle­less cab­i­nets cre­ates a clean, fin­ish. Val­cucine kitchen from £30,000.

Project de­tails Full-grained amer­i­can black wal­nut adds a shot of warmth to this scheme by small­bone of De­vizes, and em­pha­sises the low-level open stor­age, which in­tro­duces a less for­mal note. This de­sign typ­i­fies the trend for com­bin­ing two types of work­sur­faces: quartz for prac­ti­cal­ity, and nat­u­ral stone for the splash­back and bar ar­eas. This is the orig­i­nal Hand Painted kitchen, from £50,000.
