While I have been obsessed with interior design,
timeless and tranquil decor, and beautiful kitchens
since FOREVER, about two years
ago, I began falling hard for what designers
and makers in the UK like Neptune were doing
with kitchens.

These bespoke kitchens possess a purity and a
timelessness that soothe the soul in the gentlest manner.

And they aren’t just pretty.
They are crafted thoughtfully.

I learned Neptune:

1. Makes things to last a lifetime.
2. Uses the best timber from sustainable forests.
3. Says “no” to chipboard and MDF.
4. Says “yes” to traditional techniques for phenomenal strength.

Inspired by Neptune lovely, behold
two dozen ideas to make your own kitchen
feel more beautiful, timeless and tranquil.

1.
Flank the kitchen sink symmetrically with windows,
and let all that luxurious light illumine the space.

2.
Built-in cabinetry need not look like a boring run
of ho hum…just look at the tower left of the range.

3.
Making just a little space for open shelving
can be a dramatic moment in the kitchen.

There is no law governing a backsplash (or splashback
or whatever they call it where you live) on every wall.

A little window with a deep sill!
