South Downs House

The lovely team over at deVOL, an English furniture and kitchen cabinet company, sent me an email this week sharing this beautiful country mudroom and kitchen. If you're working on a kitchen or entryway renovation it might be the perfect inspiration for your project. 

The mudroom which is attached to the kitchen uses the same cabinets in a bespoke lead grey colour. The fitted window seats have lift-up lids for added storage while a big pantry cupboard houses extra coats, scarves and hats. A functional peg rail keeps often used items in reach. Whimsical roman blinds tie the grey and pale green colour scheme together.

A classic apron-front sink and honed black granite countertops sit atop classic shaker-style cabinets. Tongue and groove panelling gives a nod to traditional country style.

In the family's pool house, a single run of shaker cupboards painted in deVOL's lead paint colour create an interesting contrast against the exposed brick wall and wooden beams. 

The tiny laundry room uses cabinets in deVOL's 'old rose" paint colour. Paired with polished black granite worktops and Perrin & Rowe Mayan taps in chrome it is an unexpected but welcome choice for a small utility room.
