10 Amazing English Country Kitchens by deVOL. deVOL kitchen's South Wing Kitchen. You can't go wrong with Trinity Blue cupboards, especially when they're paired with smooth pale worktops, walls and floors - what a beautifully simple and peaceful combination. Notice these cupboards are fitted away from the walls too, this created the bespoke and freestanding feel to the room that the customers really wanted but it was all done using standard sized cupboards from our Shaker range. #deVOLKitchens

The Leicestershire Kitchen in the Woods is the perfect example of how a few Shaker cupboards, a little space and some thoughtful styling is all it takes to make one of our most loved kitchens. Oh and we couldn't not mention the beautiful @floorsofstone floor. It's their Worn Grey Limestone, a textured tile with hand distressed edges that looks hundreds of years old - one of our all time favourites.10 Amazing English Country Kitchens by deVOL. #deVOLKitchens

This is essentially a galley kitchen, but the room was open at both ends so you could walk straight through from the dining room to the garden. The owners needed a hardworking family kitchen but something that was neat and unobtrusive. This kitchen is not the show off kind, it’s the quiet shy type that always wins the affections of everyone with its endearing style. #deVOLKitchens

No. 4. Paint color on cabinets: custom. Hardware: a mix of mahogany Shaker Knobs and Bella Brass Cup Handles. deVOL says, “This is essentially a galley kitchen, but the room was open at both ends so you could walk straight through from the dining room to the garden.

The St. John's Square Townhouse was always going to be a little different to other deVOL showrooms because its architecture and location was different. We had grown to love East End properties and the more opulent, rich and atmospheric feel they conjure up. Trips to Malplaquet House in Mile End, Fournier Street and Dennis Severs' House in Spitalfields and The Zetter Townhouse just across the square, all gave a vision and inspiration for the decoration of our new townhouse. As always, @hapdesigns worked her enviable designing and styling magic and created a room that surprises and delights everyone who wanders upstairs. #deVOLKitchens

The Scullery is one of the three rooms that make up the downstairs of the Millhouse showrooms at Cotes Mill, it’s a very simply furnished room and of all the spots to see this Classic English range, it’s the most humble. You see the piece of furniture, solid hardwood, handmade and hand-painted, it’s not a modular kitchen cupboard that needs another one next to it, it’s a whole cupboard all-encompassing. 10 Amazing English Country Kitchens by deVOL. #deVOLKitchens

English beech is a beautiful native timber that we grow in abundance in the UK but is rarely used in furniture manufacture. Beech has had some bad press, mostly as it is associated with the steamed imported timber used to make bland worktops, but here we've used it in its natural form where it displays a variety of colours and grain patterns. The timber in our Sebastian Cox Kitchen has been passed through a bandsaw to give it an amazing tactile finish - it's almost impossible to stop yourself from running your hand across the cabinets. #deVOLKitchens .

About those delicious walls…deVOL says, “The walls are Venetian plaster, a lime and crushed marble based finish called Marmorino that comes with the pigment and is applied using a special layering technique that gives it that wonderful depth of colour. It’s also waterproof!”

    I love your quotes, Michele!! They’re comforting and inspiring as well. Thanks for sharing these beautiful kitchens. The marble sink is just exquisite. And I love the kitchens with a table and a fireplace instead of an island!

      Thanks, friend! I love making them and plan on inserting them regularly as a means to encourage the other kind of “peaceful interiors.” Smaller kitchens can be so charming, and I agree, it’s so refreshing to see ‘homey’ styles in the midst of so many commercial ones. 🙂
