The beautifully substantial countertop cupboards from deVOL’s Classic English range run along the back wall of the showroom. “I was very influenced by our Peckham Rye kitchen, its completely new feel was such a big hit with our customers that I felt maybe it was time to be brave and step outside our comfort zone,” Helen says.
It’s always a treat to see complete kitchen makeovers, the kind where everything gets gutted and the “after” is a total surprise. Luckily, we have two of those today, so get ready for some fun reveals. Julie’s new kitchen is dreamy in so many ways. I particularly love the tile, but the floating shelving, modern island with barstools and warm wood with white aren’t too shabby, either. Amazing transformation, Julie!

The dining table was designed by the architect David Cook at and I initially wanted solid ebony but it was not environmentally friendly so I went for veneer and both the top and the legs were custom made. The gorgeous orchids come from my lovely florist, Witchet from Aflorum.
