Kitchen Inspiration: Anna Valentine’s Home in Marylebone via Remodelista

Kitchen Inspiration in Marylebone

In the process of planning a house project, the plethora of options available for almost every necessary decision becomes quite overwhelming, doesn’t it?

Certainly, I have become distracted, bemused, engaged and amused by a huge amount of aesthetic choices for my own project that, whilst I like to entertain the notion I am considering them, I know I’d struggle to live with in the longer term. Though, obviously, I don’t want to bore myself stupid by going too ‘safe’ with the decor.

Ultimately, I imagine I will be inspired by, and live with, some hybrid of my imaginings based on the images I return to, struck afresh on each glimpse by a powerful surge of ‘Yes, I want’.

For my kitchen, these images, via Remodelista, represent my perfect kitchen Inspiration. Click through to read and see more in Kitchen of the week: a culinary space inspired by a painting.

This kitchen is in Marylebone, London, and belongs to couturier Anna Valentine who was inspired by the art of turn-of-the-20th-century Danish artist, Vilhelm Hammershoi. Read more about this by clicking the link above.

My aesthetic soul is drawn to the subtle colour palette, the constrained use of natural materials, the sparsity of the fixtures and fittings within the magnificent ‘bones’ of the room – high ceilings, huge windows, beautiful cornice. I feel … calmed … just looking at it.

I’m not sure I’d be able to achieve this in my own home but I’d Like to try.
