It’s the last week before Christmas and I’ve found myself in kitchen heaven. Carole Poirot is a photographer originally from Paris but who has been living in England for more than 20 years, first in London and now in the countryside of North Yorkshire. The previous year she has been renovating her new home and I get to share her beautiful French-inspired kitchen with you. While the renovation of the house was supposed to last only 6 weeks, it became a 9-month project that is still not completely finished.
Her new kitchen is one the most beautiful rooms I’ve ever seen. The kitchen cabinets are from my favourite British kitchen company deVOL (who have been featured multiple times on The Nordroom click here). Carole installed a Shaker kitchen in a soft grey color and combined this with brass details and antique decor. The floors are from the Victorian Floor Tile Collection by Original Style which gives the impression that it has been lying here for ever.
A large rustic wooden table combined with bistro chairs and the display of copper pots and pans bring a French vibe to this space which I absolutely adore. Even though this kitchen is new it certainly doesn’t feel like that, it’s almost like you’re in an old French countryhouse that has been loved by many generations. For me, to give that feeling to a space, is the perfect renovation job.
