New York Loft Meets Scandinavian Style in a London Kitchen

Posted on

New York Loft Meets Scandinavian Style in a London Kitchen – A New York-loft look was the goal for this chic London family kitchen with a striking exposed-brick wall. “The feature brick wall almost dictated the project,” says Will Gemmel, director of Affleck Property Services, which was behind the kitchen’s build and design. “It was a must-have.”

Look beyond the bare bricks, though, and you can also detect a faint touch of northern European chic. “It’s quite [Scandinavian] in terms of the white wooden floor and the fact that it’s open-plan,” Gemmel says. Crisp white walls and a row of skylights add to the uplifting, bright feel.

The owners mixed things up further, opting for a few rustic touches to ensure that the room didn’t feel cold or clinical. So the cabinets have a subtle, countryish charm to them, with Shaker-style paneling, while copper pendant lights add warmth and color, along with simple wooden dining furniture.
