A timeless family kitchen balancing clean minimalism and glamour

Creating a kitchen that meets the diverse needs of a busy family whilst remaining sympathetic to the architecture of a historical property requires meticulous planning and thoughtful design. Scotland-based bespoke design studio, Cameron Interiors, was tasked with designing a kitchen that would serve as the heart of the home for this young family of four living in a Georgian mansion home. Caesarstone 6131 Bianco Drift was the natural choice to complement the scheme, combining timeless, heritage-inspired beauty with practicality. 

The clients’ lifestyle centres around cooking, entertaining and quality family time, therefore, a space they would gravitate towards and that would help make their work and school lives easier to manage was on top of their wish list. Balancing the preferences of clean minimalism and glamorous interior design, the goal was to create a kitchen that satisfied both ends of this spectrum. The space had to be conducive to the family’s current habits, whilst accommodating future changes, including a large extension.

Factor in large windows and doorways and the challenge became even more apparent. The design had to not only address the current layout but also anticipate plans for extending the space, all while maintaining a cohesive and functional flow.

In order to design a long-lasting kitchen that would address these requests and match the clients’ style, Louise Delaney, Design Manager at Cameron Interiors, selected bulthaup cabinetry, which the clients had installed by the design studio in their previous home. Tall units were specified using a grey oak planked veneer, introducing a subtle, textural timber grain. A sand beige aluminium finish on the island adds a stylish layer with its soft sheen, changing tones during the day as the light gently moves through the kitchen.

Look closely and you will find reflective flecks in the material, together with warm and cool tones also used within the space. Caesarstone materials have a beautiful natural quality, superior to alternatives.”
