It’s been quite a while since we last checked in here, but things have been crazy busy here at 80/20 Kitchens. We’ve been busier than ever creating beautiful kitchens for our customers as well as increasing our portfolio of kitchen designs. 80/20 Kitchens are making more and more unique, bespoke kitchens, experimenting with designs and pushing the boundaries of traditional kitchen design.
Back at the beginning of the new year we actually joined creative forces with interior designer Sophie Robinson, to create a beautiful 80/20 Kitchen for the Ideal Home Show. We collaborated and created the Olympia Kitchen, which had incredible blue cabinetry, finished with a bold brass splashback. We actually brought this kitchen back from the show and have since installed it into our showroom. However, as this is our first 80/20 Kitchen in our showroom, we decided that we wanted to put our own unique spin on the kitchen design.
We’ve been lusting after beautiful mustard colours for a long time now, and we decided to finally take the plunge. We knew that the arrangement of cabinets that we had created for the back wall would look perfect in a statement colour, with the beautiful open walnut shelving that perfectly complements this colour palette. We love how the rich intensity of this timber adds such a sophisticated vibe to the kitchen, and helps to break up the yellow slightly.
We also knew that we had the island that we could use to create an eye catching feature in the design. We kept the same white quartz worktop on the island, as it has a gorgeous wrap around feature that we think works perfectly with the rest of the kitchen. We love Inchyra Blue by Farrow and Ball, and after seeing so many of our customers use it in their kitchens, we knew that we needed to incorporate it in someway into the Pelham Kitchen. We didn’t want to over power the India Yellow in any way, and didn’t want it to feel like the colours were battling against one another. By just having the small island finished in Inchyra Blue allows both colours to separately gain attention, and create a beautiful comfortable feeling within the room. We wanted to create subtle points of symmetry throughout the room, so used walnut backings within the ladbroke handles to tie in with the other use of the walnut in the kitchen.
We absolutely love this kitchen and are so excited to be able to finally be able to share it with you. Check back to our Instagram where we will be sharing more photos of this project very soon.
