In today’s post we would like to share one of the company’s latest work, especially developed for a residential project in Woolacombe, North Devon. The Outlook Curved Bespoke Kitchen features an elegant dining table with unconventional seating units integrated in an oval kitchen island. There is plenty of storage space available in the cupboards (including inside the kitchen island/seating combo), most of which is cleverly hidden away from sight. Generously-sized windows allow natural lighting inside, which contributes to an overall warm ambiance. The color palette in white and gray is tastefully disrupted here and there by powerful hues; take the green armchair for example, which adds an interesting traditional vibe, perfectly complemented by the entrance cabinet in matters of style.
Probably the first decision most buyers make is to determine whether they prefer a single well or a double well. These are the two main configurations. Triple well models are also available, along with specialty styles like trough sinks and integrated drain-board sinks. A single well is great for those who regularly prepare large turkeys, host dinner parties or like to preserve food for the winter. A single well is also handy for washing small dogs and bathing grubby babies. Double well sinks serve two cook families and those who like to multi-task, rinsing vegetables for the salad in one well, while cleaning up in the other well.
Part of the Cooking & Living concept, this lovely white kitchen was designed for a sea lover. Lluis, owner of the property, wanted a place that would transmit the calm and peacefulness of the Mediterranean Sea. A white kitchen seemed to be the perfect approach.

Even the table seems suspended on two structures that the designers compared with islands in the open sea. Elegant, classy and immaculate-definitely on our list of dream interiors.
