The kitchen is often the heart of the home, where families come together to make and enjoy a meal, share a drink or catch up on the events of the day. In our opinion, the perfect kitchen captures that sense of familiarity and warmth alongside a strong design sensibility.

This kitchen by deVOL ticks all those boxes, with a neutral colour palette, effortless style and a calming aesthetic throughout. An abundance of natural light, creamy bespoke paint colour and exposed timber beams set the scene for a relaxed yet stylish space to create.

Part of a family home located in the picturesque town of Henly on the River Thames in Oxfordshire, the kitchen retains village charm with modern convenient features. Featuring a large Mercury range cooker and dishwasher alongside a mixture of deep cooking pan drawers together with open and closed base cupboards, this kitchen has been designed to hold everything at the home cooks fingertips.

Sleek bright white quartz worktops and deVOL’s ‘Pewter’ hardware adds to the space’s uncomplicated elegance, particularly given quartz’s status as a great kid-friendly option. Hard-wearing and non-porous, it’s a durable material that still looks luxe.

A large kitchen island anchors the kitchen space, just waiting for you to sit down and relax with a cup of tea or to pull the kids together for an informal dinner. The Shakers round under counter sink and Ionian Perrin & Rowe taps add an extra washing-up space, so you can keep things central and easy to clean.

Beyond the structure, the personality of the home is enhanced with the rustic vintage table and chairs, timber bench stools and open Shaker style shelving, lovingly showcasing the homeware and glassware. From the highly practical structure and features to the calming, natural ambience, this is a kitchen that feels instantly like the true heart of the home.
