Yesterday we promised to share the kitchen and bathroom of Elements of Style’s holiday cottage makeover in Victoria so here you go. What do you think?
Designer Gabrielle Di Stefano says: ” The kitchen is the hub of any home and this one is no exception. We painted the ceiling and woodwork in the white we used in the rest of the house. The wainscot needed to be painted, as bare boards do not flatter this style. The mustard colour paint was replaced with the Silver Sage, linking it back to the guest bedroom. The fireplace was used constantly and everyone liked the well used bricks surrounding the mantle, so we decided to leave them as they were.
“The views from this room are fantastic, so we decided not to put any furnishings on the kitchen windows. The louvre windows serve a real purpose in the summer so covering them would have been a mistake. A simple white hemp roman was made for the dining room window. A new light fitting, leaf table and antique Belgian farmhouse chairs gave the kitchen a new lease of life.”
