A Green and Greige deVOL Kitchen in a Victorian Townhouse

On a stone’s throw from the River Thames stands a beautiful Victorian townhouse that was built in 1867. The house was brimming with character and original features, which proved to be the perfect base for a new kitchen designed by deVOL.

The owners turned to the designers of deVOL Kitchens to turn a beautiful room with high ceilings, natural light, original features, and full-height doors leading to the garden into a timeless kitchen space.

The designers at deVOL wanted the original features of the room to shine as they bring so much character to the room. They chose to design the kitchen with light Shaker cabinets and a kitchen island with a sink as the focal point of the room.

The dramatic contrasting color scheme of this kitchen fits perfectly with the period house. The dark green walls – painted in “Bakehouse Green” by deVOL – make the period features, such as the cornice and shutters, stand out.


The kitchen island has a small breakfast bar with a copper worktop to make it separate from the prepping area of the island.


Floor to ceiling Shaker cabinets have been fitted on one side of the kitchen that houses the fridge, freezer, and pantry as well as extra storage space.


The Heirloom Gaselier light by deVOL hangs above the kitchen island.


The cooker fits perfectly in the chimney breast. The alcove cupboards on either side have glass fronts to bounce light and reflection in the darker corners of the kitchen.

As always, deVOL has managed to create a beautiful kitchen space. The greige Shaker cabinets combined with the dark green walls and historic elements turn this room into a classic and timeless kitchen space.
