Last week I started a new series and my intention was actually to also bring it to the blog, because sometimes one photo just isn’t enough right? And as I said on the post last weekend, while a new kitchen might only be something, we get ones or twice in our lives, it is certainly one of those rooms that inspires me the most. I want to share those kitchens that catches my eye and to start off with something close to home, I want to share the Nordic Kitchen created by Swedish Kitchen Company Nordiska Kök. Inspired by the bright Nordic light and austere beauty in this part of the world, the kitchen just delivers an instant feel of calmness.
Most new kitchen is really all about showing some personality – just like it’s been on the agenda for the rest of the house for a few years now – the Nordic Kitchen might not be the most challenging kitchen of them all, but it still features a soft greige, tone on tone palette complimented by a textural limestone countertop, which is high on the Scandies wish list.
A bespoke kitchen island with built in storage includes open shelving and a wine rack. Concealed behind the doors are custom cabinets and drawers in stained oak. A mix of ceramic, vintage and rustic wooden tableware provide the perfect finishing touches, and I could easily see myself sipping the morning coffee on that upholstered Afteroom Stool by Menu. Serene, yet hard-working, this kitchen strikes a beautiful balance between function and form.
