The Rest

The owner of this striking early 20th Century Arts and Crafts beachside home in Aldeburgh wanted a kitchen design to echo the building’s heritage and natural surroundings.

Keen to reflect the Suffolk sky within the design, there’s a sky-blue island and free standing larder cupboard. It is the perfect accompaniment to the bespoke cream cabinetry and original floorboards.

“From the beginning to the completion of our Vale Designs kitchen I was impressed by the attention to detail and high-quality craftsmanship. Andy was constantly helpful, creative, and full of good ideas and practical experience.

The rich walnut worktop on the island is a fantastic contrast to the blue and adds warmth to the inviting food preparation area.

For a unique finish that is in keeping with this property’s story, antique mirror panels have been positioned behind glass shelving to create a light and airy artisanal feature.
