I’ve seen a lot of beautiful, modern kitchen projects lately, and I have to be honest — they’re making me quite envious. I understand how major an undertaking like this can be, even when the owner is also a talented architect, as is the case with this amazing kitchen from Suzanne and Greg Damant. Suzanne and Greg lived in this home for more than 10 years before finally undergoing these renovations, and it’s clear that every decision was made with care and consideration. I love seeing what the pros end up doing in their own homes, and I’ll definitely be keeping this one in my inspiration file. Amazing job, Suzanne and Greg!
deVOL’s stunning new ground floor showroom at St. John’s Square opened up to customers this February. Walking into this unique showroom feels more like walking into someone’s kitchen and home, which is exactly what was intended. The space is authentic and comfortable, like it’s always been an integral part of the house. Customers are greeted by a beautiful mix of rich colors and textures; original wood floors, emerald green tiles, dusty pink walls and a large kitchen island usher visitors into deVOL’s world right at the door. It’s clear that the team at deVOL has great respect for history, functionality and beautiful aesthetics, and incorporates this into their kitchen designs in unconventional ways.
Thanks to the instant success of deVOL’s first London shop just half a mile away, it had quickly become clear that one showroom couldn’t keep up with the amount of customers waiting for design appointments. Because of the high demand for beautiful kitchens, it wasn’t long before deVOL took the plunge and bought the entire building in St. John’s Square, with the intention to bring it back to its former glory. “As we explored not only the shop but the house above, we just thought it would be a fantastic place to display our kitchens and all the other amazing stuff we make and sell. From the derelict basement right up four stories to the roof garden with views of this historic square and beyond to St.Pauls, it was just an untouched, original property full of charm, character and history,” says Helen Parker, Creative Director at deVOL.
