The Colourful Kitchen in Nunhead

You can feel the positive energy of our clients in this kitchen – a professional couple who bought this house, a ‘doer upper’ and drafted in architects, Delve, to transform their Victorian terrace. Described as ‘Bold and beautiful’ by Ideal Home, the kitchen includes a trio of Pluck colours. 

Speaking to the magazine our clients said: ‘When planning our extension, we knew we wanted a bright kitchen-diner space, with a yellow and green scheme. Our home is already colourful but we want more! We started working with Pluck Kitchens on a design and we loved its palette options, going with Market Mustard, Bonnington Green and Ritzy, using them as inspiration for the rest of the space.’
From the forest green frames of the windows and upholstery on the banquette, to the mustard yellow structural column and marble terrazzo Marmoreal® worktop by Dzek, the Pluck hues are colour matched throughout the space to create a cohesive palette. The living room is colour matched to Ritzy’s coral pink, so this warm shade frames the room as you approach from here.

There is a juxtaposition of finishes that brings a cheeky, irreverence to the scheme, velvet seating with an industrial polished concrete floor, exposed bricks and pink furniture, a matt black tap against the lux worktops, even the celebration of the structural beam in bold yellow, Delve reflected perfectly the couple’s wish to make this a playful, social kitchen. 

Indeed the space was designed with hosting in mind, whilst guests sit at the table, the cook can whip up a feast and still be part of the conversation. People can perch at the island, this is a relaxed, informal room. A bespoke Brixton Dresser is intended to be a drinks prep area, cocktails to be precise.

Ideal Home summed up this kitchen perfectly saying our clients ‘made bold choices and created an eye-catching space that’s perfect for entertaining’. It really is easy to imagine long lunches and candlelit dinners in this room chatting with friends and family as delicious food and the odd cocktail are enjoyed!
