Be Smitten by a Classic English Cotswold Kitchen!

I took one glance at this Classic English Cotswold Kitchen on deVOL Kitchens’ instagram feed, and it was all over. If I could have my way, THIS  is the sophisticated, rustic, high-end yet approachable, blissful, bespoke, luxury kitchen design that would be mine.

deVOL has been a favorite of Hello Lovely forever and for good reason. The taste factor, craftsmanship, thoughtfulness, artful soul, and handmade goodness so lacking in the marketplace is alive and breathing in the UK.

Timeless, tranquil, and lovely have always been my favorite design language, and indeed, deVOL speaks it fluently.

Holy lofty and church-like sacred symphony of a kitchen design, Batman!

Arabescato Corchia Marble

One of my favorite sources in the USA for Arabescato Corchia marble is Aria Stone Gallery.

The crisp white background of Aria Stone Gallery’s Arabescato Corchia Marble is beautifully offset against bold, flowing grey veins and golden undertones, creating a painterly image across this classic slab. 

About that AGA…

If you have an AGA in your own kitchen, please do comment and share your opinion too!

If you’re new to AGA, it may appear that this AGA range cooker sports 6 ovens. Actually, it offers 5 ovens plus a control panel. On the top of the range are insulated covers and hot plates, and below are simmering, baking, and roasting ovens.

The AGA is indeed a triumph as a cooker, and to understand how it operates…

AGA 5 Oven in Black

AGA offers a brilliant explanation of how their cooker works right here below (watch it – I hung on to every word and was not bored for a nanosecond)!

The price tag on a 5 oven AGA like this one may be in the $30K range.

But take heart!

We can  own our own AGA in the $30 range:

Ha!

Um. Pardon me, mates.

But have I just discovered the ultimate stocking stuffer for every Anglophile and home chef on the planet??????

ALSO RATHER LOVELY Decor in the Same Spirit

This showstopping kitchen was created with careful, thoughtful design for every detail and could never be duplicated.

Yet if you allow your imagination to float free in order to soak up some of the broader strokes of genius, you may be able to capture a bit of its spirit without selling the children a second mortgage.

For example, perhaps you have considered a brass bridge style kitchen faucet? I provided the source for the exact exquisite ones in this kitchen above.

Find a few rather lovely alternative examples here.

Need ideas for a brass swing arm wall light too?

    I enjoy your blog, Michele, I get ideas from it, and am a huge fan of DeVol kitchens. This kitchen is fabulous. You revealed in a photo one of my biggest gripes about interior design shots: photographers retouching photos to eliminate recessed lighting. In most of the shots the lighting appears to be coming from only the downlights and the brass swing lights, which would leave the ceiling of this kitchen a black cave at night. However one photo shows all the recessed lights in the peak, along with other mechanicals. That’s the real kitchen!

    I like fantasy as much as the next design geek, but it’s exasperating. I’m in the middle of a kitchen reno of a large space with a vaulted ceiling, and figuring out the lighting is tough. Most photos are like these: beautiful fixtures, obviously inadequate for a working kitchen, and a pristine expanse of ceiling. I look at them and think, “What am I doing wrong?” When I mock up something similar in my own space, I’m left with shadows in the corners and dark areas on the counters.

    Anyway, this is in no way a criticism of your post, just an expression of frustration. I study so many kitchens, especially DeVol’s, and airbrushing out every bit of practical lighting is misleading and unhelpful.

      THANK YOU. You have opened my eyes to a very practical matter for which I have little experience. I wasn’t aware of airbrushing – I know colors are often changed in editing for magazines, but I rarely think about fixtures getting erased. Interesting indeed! Thanks so much for adding a layer of helpful guidance. Peace to you.

    You had me with the window, then I spotted the double brass faucets (sigh). I hope you’re feeling better and eating solid food my friend 🙏
