Kitchen Refurbishment in a 1950’s Home

One of my clients had recently moved into a 1950’s house that needed completely updating, as part of my commission I was asked to style the newly fitted kitchen the client had chosen. I looked to the 1950’s for my inspiration to ensure a sympathetic period feel to the room whilst giving it a contemporary twist.

Mrs Kirby, the Client said:  “The kitchen was dark and unispriring and wasn’t a space we enjoyed living in. We feel the kitchen is the heart of the house as we enjoy entertaining and so wanted a space we enjoyed”

Here is a before picture, showing the existing  kitchen.

This is the kitchen after refurbishment showing the period style lighting and 1950’s black and red colour scheme.

Mrs Kirby had this to say about the project: …”Jane provided advice on the layout prior to the builders starting work and she gave us very good advice on the lighting. She found some really interesting lights which provide a great talking point and she made all the other suggestions such as colour schemes, light fittings, tiling and the flooring.”
