A Curvy Kitchen in Muswell Hill
North London based kitchen designer, Tim Moss was approached by Nicole Peters who wanted a really functional kitchen. Tim Moss was briefed for a traditional kitchen, but brought forward in time. The client wanted all the mod cons, but didn’t like the sleek modern style of today’s kitchens.The old kitchen was a galley style, which had a lot of workspace, but because of wall-hung cupboards, much of it was unusable.
The new design is an understated timeless kitchen that works, even when Nicola and her children are cooking together – there’s space for everyone and she feels it’s standing the test of time. Discrete Gaggenau appliances add a contemporary look, a wine cooler provides space for husband Philip’s passion and Nicola got the coffee machine she was desperate for.
A glass extension floods the space with light and the curved edges mean moving around in the space is easy. Plenty of storage space including a large coat cupboard for all the children’s school things keeps it tidy. A breakfast bar means it’s a room where the whole family can spend time together. Tim created a traditionally made kitchen given a very contemporary look by the choice of appliances, handles and the colour. Tim suggested Light Blue by Farrow & Ball, a calm colour that looks green, grey or blue depending on the light, it provides a perfect background to the appliances and creates a restful space.

A Kitchen in Three Movements’ by Johnny Grey
Johnny Grey specializes in creating sociable multi-use kitchen spaces. He calls the kitchen he recently designed for a family in West London ‘A Kitchen in Three Movements’ with three zones joined with a central corridor. Each zone has identifiable functions – culinary and dining; storage and cooking; home office. Each has a preferred aesthetic choice; the culinary zone is made in artisanal, more hand-made style, predominately using cast concrete and timber.
The multi-functional island unit incorporates a hob, a chopping block which traverses the entire length of the concrete dais and raised height server bar in solid English Ash. Says Grey “ I was inspired by the non-symmetrical rhomboid shape of the top and a desire to make it more like a sculpture than a cabinet. And to be more playful, we lifted the base to let the light from the windows spread across the floor.”
Johnny particularly likes collaborating with interior designers and architects and is currently working on several projects for furniture, home cinemas, and outdoor kitchens.

These fibres are sourced for their outstanding quality, ensuring each Herald Superb is sumptuously soft and comfortable; their natural properties also provide optimum ventilation to guarantee an untroubled night’s rest.
The Herald Superb partners the Prestige divan base (also pictured). The mattress and pocket sprung divan work harmoniously together to create a responsive unit, reacting to movements throughout the night for a peaceful sleep; providing 40 per cent more comfort than sleeping on the mattress alone.

Beauty of Bespoke
Woodstock Furniture was approached to design a new, open-plan kitchen which led to the creation of this contemporary, family kitchen-living space with bespoke, flat-fronted cabinetry, an elegant, simple cornice and curved island details.

The cabinet design along the wall features wide drawers with simple finger grooves and handleless wall cupboards in a practical symmetrical design, which is balanced at both ends with tall cabinets. A large larder cupboard ensures plenty of space for food storage and there’s a handy desk area.
The feature island is the focal point of the design and it connects the different zones with plenty of space for prep, the sink and bar stools. The rounded end catches the eye with a structural column, which creates a softer touch to the otherwise linear design.
Artu by Promemoria
