Cabinetry in deep blue contrasts to great effect with gleaming white work surfaces and is complemented by soft grey at the peninsula and entertainment piece. Corian worktop, in a light solid colour, with under-mounted stainless steel sink and Quooker boiling water tap offers a functional space for food preparation. The drop down section was designed for the young chef in the family to try her hand at pastry making with mum.

Kitchen Connection of Ascot (KCA)
This modern home nestled in rural Berkshire is an architectural delight. After acquiring the plot of land the owners built their own dream home to their exact taste in a bold, contemporary style. The kitchen is positioned to the rear of the property in an open plan kitchen and lounge area and overlooks the beautiful rural landscape through the floor to ceiling windows. The style of the kitchen is contemporary with bold angles to complement the architecture of the property, whilst the cool grey and wood colour scheme ties in with the minimalist interior running through the whole home.

A Victorian terraced townhouse set over five storeys, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms on the upper two floors; a double drawing room, family room, snug, study and hall on the first and ground levels, and a utility room, nanny suite and kitchen-dining room leading to a garden on the lower level. Settling here from overseas, the owners of this house in Primrose Hill chose the area for its quintessentially English architecture and bohemian feel. They loved the property’s original features and wanted their new home to be light and spacious, with plenty of storage and an eclectic British feel. As self-confessed ‘culture vultures’, the couple’s art collection formed the basis of their home’s colour palette.

How can you define contemporary design when it’s very definition means it changes with the times? Well, in broad terms contemporary design is anything that is the opposite of retro and traditional and is instead innovative, modern and new. In the 21st Century you can define contemporary design as bold, with clean lines and a strong emphasis on natural materials, stark black, white and bold colours, and lots of light. Contemporary kitchens are easy to spot, with their sleek, minimalist kitchen cabinets, glossy finishes and bright open spaces, while contemporary furniture around the rest of the home often plays with curved lines and innovative materials.

Contemporary interior design is modern in essence, but it should not be confused with the interior design and architecture style of ‘modern’, which was a style introduced in the middle of the century and is often termed ‘midcentury modern’. Modernism is different from contemporary design and architecture but because the word ‘modern’ has become synonymous with ‘contemporary’ in everyday talk, there is often lots of confusion between the two styles. If you’d prefer to see simple, functional design and architecture, with lots of right angles and machine-produced materials, then choose the Modern style. If you love contemporary kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms with gloss, glass and curves, stick with contemporary.
