Colourful Source Karen Clough, Interior Blogger “The word I’d use to describe this kitchen over any other is ‘unforgettable’. It’s bold. It’s quirky. It’s a conversation starter whilst not being an assault on the eyes. I love how it is unapologetically a lived-in and practical home. Instead of locking away the products that define the room’s function, this kitchen has celebrated them with colourful fruit bowls and stools paired against darker wall accessories and lighting fixtures for extra contrast. It is packed with personality and that bright geometric paint job is simply incredible and, to me, timeless.” Get the Look Kartell Charles Ghost Stool – Orange Bloomingville Jars with Bamboo Lid – Set of 3 Old School Electric British Spun-Steel Factory Pendant Dualit Classic Toaster – Red Tina Frey Designs Wide Serving Bowl Source Jacquin Milhouse, Interior Blogger “A little inspiration never hurts when you’re in the kitchen and this color burst kitchen certainly delivers. I love that this kitchen has so many unexpected pops of color! It feels young, fresh, and energizing. I also enjoy all of the beautiful textures and patterns present. Its feature planter wall and gold barstools are a treat in this space as well, but I must say that the graphic, wrap-around tile wall is my favorite. This kitchen has a collected feel, while still maintaining a contemporary look. A true visual delight!” Source Kate Beavis, Interior Blogger “My favourite kitchen is this original 1950s English Rose owned by Sarah Bradbury from Planet Sputnik which I featured in my book Style Your Modern Vintage Home. It was the “must have” kitchen of the time, produced in the UK out of stockpiled aluminium left over from spitfire manufacturing during the war. It was also the first modular kitchen with a metal frame that could be bolted together easily. I love the aesthetics as well as the practicality- the curved front drawers enabled a deeper worktop without losing floor space which was perfect for the 50s housewife. John Lewis make a modern version but you can’t beat the original! This example is extra special due to the addition of other vintage accessories such as the American cannisters and Caddymatic tea dispenser.” Source Janice Issitt, Interior Blogger “I love my kitchen because it is personalised to exactly my taste and not one bought from a catalogue. I dislike hard black and white surfaces, preferring wood, natural or painted, and preferably worn and chipped. I love vintage kitchenalia, so collections of that are on the shelves and in the glass fronted cupboards. I re-paint the kitchen myself, and lately in pastel shades to match the vintage style appliances. The door knobs are all mismatched and so is the china and cups. Im a colour fanatic so a great way to change the colours of your kitchen are with paint or to add fabric curtains to cover white goods.” Source Brenda Kula-Pruitt, Interior Blogger “Probably most would not understand why I chose the photo of this kitchen as my favourite. So I’ll explain. This looks like someone’s grandmother’s kitchen. So it evokes many warm feelings in me. I absolutely love eat-in kitchens, and this one has that. I like white kitchen appliances, not stainless steel, which I find too harsh and industrial. I love the red and turquoise colour combination. The simplicity of the cabinets. The hardwood floors. The retro kitchen table surrounded by blue wooden chairs. I am crazy for polka dots. And most especially red and white polka dots. This kitchen carries with it a whimsical theme that makes me smile when I gaze at it. It looks like a lived in kitchen. One where love resides within its walls.” Source Paula Benson, Interior Blogger “I love clean lines, granite and stainless steel but conversely, one of my favourite kitchens is a retro, fun, stylish affair. The kitchen in Don and Megan’s 1960s Park Avenue apartment in Mad Men is a Mid Century Modern masterpiece. Rich blue and vibrant orange cabinet doors vie for attention, zinging out from their dark walnut borders, complimented by an unusual brown Frigidaire. At a time when open plan became all the rage, a kitchen on full view meant it needed to look damn good as well as be practical.” Source Rebecca Davies, Interior Designer “I absolutely love this kitchen despite it being red and blue, which are colours I never usually go for. And in a world of neutral kitchens, what a breath of fresh air to find one that is so bold and colourful and confident. Applying patterned tiles to the entire wall gives the room drama and interest, and I love the juxtaposition of the vintage wall cabinet and chandelier against the contemporary sleek units and worktop. Little pops of pink and green, and the warm colour of the wooden floor, all go towards making this kitchen not only beautiful, but homely as well.” Source Yasmin Chopin, Interior Blogger “When you move into a new home the kitchen is probably the most difficult room to change if it doesn’t already fit with your taste and style. The design of this kitchen, made and installed by Cimitree, really excites me for the clever way it uses the space. It is an awkwardly shaped room and each expertly crafted unit is given what seems a generous amount of space. This allows light to become an active element in the design as it reaches the surfaces and shows off the colours, curves and details. The plain white walls make the room appear like an art gallery and the kitchen units are the star exhibits. The combination of colours is unusual and hark back to the sixties for me although I understand the inspiration was Art Deco; you can see how the two periods meld together creating a unique style. The care and skill that has gone into the making is self-evident, you can look at this kitchen for a long time and keep seeing more beauty. I adore the kick boards! I would be very proud to own a kitchen like this.” Source Katrina West, Interior Blogger “To me, a kitchen must be practical, stylish & the heart of a home. I love an eclectic mix of modern style fused harmoniously with traditional: Here, the original parquet flooring & cooker hood elements blend perfectly to create a classic style with a contemporary edge. The clean lines of the white units establish a calm, open space, whilst styling with bright pops of colour add heaps of character.” Find more kitchen design ideas on the Amara site and discover the shop by kitchen edit.

Classic Contemporary Source Humphrey Munson, Kitchen Designers “The scale of the kitchen in the Ashurst House project is quite staggering – it encompasses the open plan kitchen, dining area in the Orangery, scullery, walk-in larder and a boot room. We love the simplicity of the design and how it really captures that quintessentially classic English style but most importantly, it suits the family’s needs perfectly. They love to entertain so having the scullery tucked around the corner is perfect for parties in the open plan space.” Get the Look Kartell Masters Stool 75cm Frama E27 Brass Pendant Light Broste Copenhagen Freb Lanterns – Set of 3 LSA International Flower Grand Stem Vase Source Gabriella Palumbo, Interior Blogger “I absolutely love the style of this kitchen mainly because it embodies many of my favourite design elements. I am a huge fan of the two toned colours used on the cabinetry as this allows for depth but also adds brightness to the space. I particularly love the brass accents which contrast the classic styled cabinetry, balancing old and new. The mix of natural materials used to finish off this kitchen like white marble countertops, wooden objects (stools & cutting boards) and the copper canisters turn this kitchen into a clean and contemporary space with an organic feel!” Source Grant Pierrus, Interior Blogger “This is my favourite kitchen as everyone can get a lot of inspiration from it. It’s a simple contemporary design, and really easy to achieve. The bold use of blue on the walls and cabinets help to create a unified backdrop which highlights the marble accessories and large white farmhouse sink. Simple, bold and functional spaces really are my favourite.” Source Nicolette Lafonseca-Hargreaves, Interior Blogger “This is my favourite kitchen style as it lends itself to the utilitarian functionality of the space without compromising one little bit on style. There are many ways that you can incorporate this style into your home. Adding a chalkboard wall, wire shelves, bistro chairs or encaustic tiles. I have always been a fan of white subway tiles but using grey grout really gives you that bistro edge. You can soften the look by displaying cookery books on chunky wooden shelves and framing children’s artwork. If the budget allows top it off with a colourful 50s style fridge, I want mine to be mint green.” Source Claire Garner, Interior Designer “Typically Kitchens, without the right treatment, can be cold and clinical spaces, but the warmth of the beautiful oak in this Kitchen counteracts this. The chalky, but confident wall colour helps create a cosy feeling, while the paler units help keep the room light. The fabric shade pendants above the central island have been added to soften the space, and the artwork above the AGA adds character and personality to the space. The overall look is elegant, but relaxed – its sociable layout allows for practical family living – something that I am often asked for by my clients.” Source Jesse Audubey, Interior Blogger “I love everything about this kitchen: the subdued palette of white and grey which helps the light bounce around to give some breadth to the room, and the marble splash-back wall that successfully frames the space. The simple and functional design of the white kitchen elements almost makes them fade to the background, while providing plenty of storage space and leaving centre stage to this gorgeous statement dining table in a 1960s style. To me, this is a wonderfully serene room, minimal in its aesthetic and clutter-free but also warm and inviting, with the nod to nature of these wooden retro chairs complete with wood grain, and the tan and green accents conveyed by the carefully picked homewares, fruits, vegetables and plants.” Kitchen design by Marie-Laure Helmkampf, photographed by Nicolas Matheus Source Mary Middleton, Interior Blogger “I’ve always had a soft spot for painted kitchens as they really offer longevity in my opinion, because when you’ve gone off that perfect “of the moment” colour you can repaint the cabinets and give your kitchen a whole new lease of life. Especially if you change up the hardware and maybe the backsplashes too. This bespoke kitchen is masquerading it’s modern technology behind traditional hand painted cabinetry. It’s making a really contemporary statement though with the inky dark paint choice, painted in Off Black by Farrow & Ball. For those of us beyond the “roommate” years we tend to make the kitchen the heart of the house. Being able to cook and socialise with friends and family at the same time is a big desire if your kitchen is large enough. It’s why kitchen islands are so in demand and so enjoyable if you have them, this island increases its sociable charm by having an integrated wine fridge. Teamed with large format stone flooring with under floor heating, a traditional Aga and a beautiful oak beam this kitchen shows its cosy side too. It’s not that exciting to have to consider durability when you’re designing a space but when it comes to designing your kitchen it’s of paramount importance, as kitchen’s are usually big ticket purchases in your home.”
