Three beautiful kitchens featuring our Cotswold collection….by Armac Martin

For many, the kitchen is truly the heart of the home. It’s where we cook, eat, entertain and socialize, so we believe that this space should be designed around our lifestyle, with each detail representing our personality, passions and priorities.   
We’ve chosen three of our favorite kitchens that we feel showcase our Cotswold collection in a beautiful and unique way, with each one designed and created by a range of interior specialists.

The Cotswold collection is a range of more traditional items, ideally suited to shaker style kitchens. With three styles of knobs, two styles of drawer pull, three options of catches and a cabinet pull, the collection offers plenty of diversity.

1. Thomas May Bespoke

As part of their Purbeck Farm project, premium joinery specialists, Thomas May Bespoke have handcrafted this shaker style kitchen. Full of the finest components and decorative finishing touches, this wonderful space will no doubt be enjoyed by its owners for years to come!


The precision-cut dovetail drawers paired with our burnished brass hardware sees traditional techniques meet contemporary design.


Contrast is a running theme throughout this kitchen, with the white stone slab work tops, dark cabinetry, light wood beams and hints of aged brass blending together beautifully.
The use of these complementary materials, colours and hardware adds a touch of luxury to this family kitchen.

2. Richard Burke Kitchens

This stunning and timeless design by Richard Burke Kitchens integrates the most exquisite details with the finest materials.


With its exposed brick fireplace, dark wood highlights and antique brass hardware throughout, this kitchen emits the perfect balance of aesthetics, functionality and quality.

Not only does this gorgeous kitchen boast an island bar that seats two, but the perfectly positioned dining table allows it to double as an enjoyable living and working space too.


The teal shaker cabinet in the corner of the room adds a pop of colour to this traditional kitchen, with the brass hardware contributing towards its classic feel. 


The grey marble work tops paired with the white slat walls is a prime example of how using neutral colours and textures can still create a striking statement.  


This fun family kitchen oozes personality, unparalleled quality and homely vibes!

3. Russell J Milligan

Through a tailored design, Russell J Milligan has created this stylish and elegant kitchen.


The bespoke joinery is fitted with our Cotswold collection drawer pulls and knobs. The burnished brass finish against the dramatic grey cabinetry gives a distinguished feel and proves that no detail has been overlooked.

With its shaker style cabinetry hand-painted in Manor House Grey, and the cook’s pantry in Downpipe (both by @farrowandball), this kitchen emits a fabulous mix of tones. The metro tiles at the back of the hob also add a new dimension to the room.

This effortless social space is proof that when positioned strategically, a large island can be utilised for storage as well as dining. The unusual arch set in the middle of the island further accentuates the clean and crisp lines found throughout the kitchen.

With any kitchen – especially a social one – it’s all about the seating details. The wooden stools add a layer of texture to the space, whilst inviting people to congregate.


We also love how this seat has been incorporated into the cabinetry!
