A chunky oak table takes centre stage, around which sits an array of muted blue/grey painted cabinets. Open shelving helps to create a feeling of space, which is continued by tongue-and-groove panelling below it, painted in the same shade. Hand-painted Shaker-style tulipwood cabinetry has been finished with alloy Britannium knobs, while mottled Azul Platino granite worktops echo the black slate tiles on the floor.
