Kitchen Decor Inspiration: Bespoke, Timeless, and Modern Shaker Kitchen

This gorgeous Tom Howley exquisite bespoke kitchen breaks a number of kitchen design rules, so let’s take a tour and decide if we agree with the renegade approach.

Since it’s a custom kitchen, it was designed precisely for how the homeowners live, dine, entertain, and prepare meals.

Gasp!

This kitchen sink is not located under

a kitchen window, and there’s no

“faux window/mirror” either.

Instead, an expanse of

beautiful open shelving

has been constructed, and doesn’t this seem

both functional and aesthetically pleasing

since it’s likely the homeowner is not

spending hours standing at the sink

washing dishes?

Modern chic appliances combined

with traditional Shaker cabinetry.

We might expect to see a traditional

pro-style range in the place

where there is a Miele induction hob.

And the wall oven is not tucked away on

a back wall, but rather is close to the cooktop.

Wide drawers instead of doors underneath the cooktop

and custom-sized doors sandwiching the wall oven.

An absence of wood on the island top,

floors, and elsewhere.

In fact, there is no trace of any unpainted

wood that I can spy.

The beautiful natural stone flooring,

for me, feels like a cloud I would love

to live on, and it doesn’t bother me in

the slightest there is minimal contrast

going on with flooring and cabinetry

    Seriously gorgeous! I love that Chicory color on the island, such a warm sophisticated shade. The open shelving above the sink is a great idea too. Happy Friday Michele ?

    Love thinking outside of the box. Love the way the eye doesn’t stop at any one point, everything blends together making the space more open and less cluttered. CLEAN!
