Amelia Liana-Kitchen Tour
We are in London touring the fabulous Amelia Liana new kitchen. Amelia was a dream to work with and has impeccable style which is obvious from taking one look at the kitchen. The cabinetwork was painted in Farrow and Ball Vert de Terre which is a very on trend colour, almost a light green which she paired with brass accents from Armac Martin and Perrin and Rowe.
Welcome to our latest bespoke kitchen project
Welcome to London where we are touring our amazing client and influencer Amelia Liana’s Kitchen.
The first thing you’re going to notice in this kitchen is of course the colour. It’s Farrow and Ball Vert de Terre which is a gorgeous green hue and very on-trend at the moment.
The first unit, we’re going to see is the fridge freezer. We’ve got a 70, 30 split fridge on top freezer at a bottom with a small furniture shelf above the fridge at high level. This was the perfect size refrigeration for Amelia as she currently lives on her own.
Directly opposite we’ve got the cooking appliances in a tall stack. There is a single oven at low level and a microwave above, both from Miele. The microwave is a combi-microwave so you can use it as an additional oven if you’re hosting or cooking a lot. Above this is more shelving which is perfect for tea and even bottles of spirits!
In terms of the furniture, we have front frame cabinetry with a quirk bead. The doors are shaker doors, but with a lambs, tongue moulding and flat centre panel. You can see the butt hinges which are exposed to give a timeless look. The hinges were antique brass to match the other accents in the room.
At high level we’ve got this small cornice which nods to the traditional aesthetic in the kitchen.
Coming into the main working part of the kitchen – on the wet side of the kitchen, we’ve got your ceramic undermount sink with Perrin and Rowe antique brass taps which include a normal mixer tap, a hand spray and a boiling water tap. These taps are a living finish so the colour will change and patina over time which is really different.
The handles were Armac Martin – Amelia opted for two different styles of handles (some cup some knobs) but both in the same matching finish. The cups are easier for accessing drawers but knobs work well on the wall units and fridge/freezer.
On the sink run we have the sink in the middle, an integrated bin on one side and dishwasher on the other. Above this are a run of wall units but the central pair are glazed and lit which is perfect for displaying some china or glassware. The internals were oak veneer which match the dovetail oak drawerboxes.
On the opposite (hob) run of the kitchen – Amelia opted for a lovely long run of drawers providing ample space for plates, pots and pans with shallow cutlery and utensil drawers at high level. These top drawers are internally divided to make it easier to organise.
Above the hob is a traditional mantel which stands alone but gives a focal point to the kitchen. Either side of this we have single wall units providing great storage for oils and spices which are on hand by the hob for when Amelia cooks.
The stone which was a Verona Calacatta Quartz comes all the way up from the worktop and clads the entire wall on both sides. It’s 30mm thick which is normal in a more traditional setting but Amelia has chosen an Ogee edge profile on the worktops which matches so nicely to the lambs tongue moulding on the doors and the cornice at high level.
At the end of each of these runs are shallow depth tall units which are both fully shelved which is great storage for everything from Vases to glasses.
