Design of the Month – Mr and Mrs Betson

Check out this beautiful kitchen!  We really love this colour combination of cashmere, magnolia and aqua blue accents.  This kitchen was designed by Oliver for Mr and Mrs Betson, who have accessorised beautifully, and made this project really special.

The colour combination allows this kitchen to be really soft and delicate, accentuated with curves on the end cupboards which makes this kitchen work really well.  The units are high gloss magnolia and cashmere doors by German supplier Hacker.  The worktops work really well – they are Samsung quartz in Aleutian White.

The Aleutian White works really well as it just blends in with the magnolia doors, and sits really comfortably above the cashmere, and a conscious decision to not introduce another colour.

The ovens are comfortably stacked to the right of the sink, with a single oven, warming drawer, and a combi microwave above.  A handy combination of appliances to get the most out of the cooking!

Mr and Mrs Betson have picked this gorgeous teal blue colour for their accent colour, and have added little details in teal, like the vase on the window sill, and the famous Sandersons ‘Clocks’ pattern in the blind above the sink.

The layout of this kitchen is very practical and makes the best use of the light available.  There is a skylight that helps bring in more natural light, with the kitchen seemingly brighter than the original with the help of the light colours and airy spacious feel.

Mr and Mrs Betson were originally going to go for a more traditional, classic style of kitchen, with perhaps something to compliment the internal oak wood doors, but having seen the finished effect with the modern doors, we think this was the right decision!  To incorporate the oak in the modern kitchen, Mr and Mrs Betson picked a round oak table with modern blue and metal legged chairs, which bring the house and the kitchen together perfectly.

The kitchen has an American fridge freezer, and the teal blue accent glass behind a shelf for books, a really lovely little design feature.

This side of the kitchen probably has the least amount of natural light, but these underlights really help to brighten the space.

These funky chairs are a feature for the kitchen, without being too eye-catching and taking away the  focus of the kitchen, and the curved details rather than a square edged table and chairs really help to tie in the rest of the theme of the kitchen.


We really love this space and the combination of calm colours and ‘curve’ appeal. This kitchen has really started a trend among our designers and followers.
