The Mount Kitchen
Traditional 1800s style with a sophisticated modern take
The inspiration behind the grand floor-to-ceiling wrap-around storage came from the living room, which still retains its original 1800's Victorian wood panelled walls. With this project, Neil Norton Design wanted to retain the immense character whilst producing a considerate modern result.
The property is located within a gorgeous building, so it was important that the interior was as impactful as the exterior, if not more so. The client also wanted a space where he could entertain, so a kitchen with a spacious central island as a social area was created.
The kitchen and the furniture for the rest of the house needed to integrate well with the architecture of the building, it was extremely important for Neil Norton Design to give their clients as much storage as possible, making use of any awkward space by turning it into an organised cabinet.
The final result feels effortless, even though every tiny detail is carefully planned out.
The different materials and textures come together perfectly in a classic space that feels contemporary. The designers don't get to work with high ceilings as often as they would like to, so when they do, they like to make use of the extra space - storage is key, and the finished project always end up being very dramatic!
Neil Norton Design made sure the kitchen felt like a natural continuation of the space, drawing inspiration from the rest of the property and creating a unique and timeless room that looks classic and contemporary at the same time.
