Happily Ever After: Simple & Serene Kitchens

26 January 2012 0


Do you know this feeling: You are in your home, you look around and feel the immediate urge to remove the surplus books on your bedside table, the half a dozen burnt down candles on the sideboard, the excess vases on your shelf. You feel the need for simplicity. For air to breathe. For a clean and uncluttered space. Well, truth be told, with my tiny apartment I must do this from time to time. And I do. Especially in my teeny kitchenette.

With this zest for simplicity in interiors in mind, I went around and about looking for inspiring ideas. And I happened to encounter deVOL kitchens. A delightful producer of bespoke kitchens, other furniture and accessories mainly made of wood. A simple glance on their brochure revealed the serenity, sophistication and somewhat traditional design of their products and I daydreamed away imagining my personal bespoke kitchen. Well, I was pretty sure you will like this amazing design made in England, too. Honestly, isn’t it simply great?

    Nice kitchen Igor… if a little bit too country for me. I laughed when I read the “do you know this feeling” bit. I’m completely OCD with everything being just so and I don’t do clutter. I’m not Mr minimal, but firmly believe in less is more 🙂

    These are a lovely breath of fresh air – I especially like the hanging lights & candles photo, it’s lovely.

      You too, Collette!! And yes, kitchens MUST be a super gathering space (what a pity my kitchen has the size of a shoebox).

    I absolutely agree with both you and Gerard. Stuff keeps piling up no matter how often we obsessively clean it up. 🙂

    Oh yes, a clean, uncluttered space = a relaxed and peaceful space! So true!

    Gorgeous! The idea of a kitchen is serene, even if mine never stays that way!
