Midcentury Kitchen Ideas and Designs

can't take any credit for the kitchen, it was always at the front of the house, but isnt it dazzling!
The front door of the flat opens directly into the kitchen and dining area, so we included storage in the hallway for coats and somewhere to put a bag and shoes. As all of the rooms are visible from the living room, we included a display area to shield the bed and give privacy, as well as somewhere to store and display personal items and books. The kitchen was created using Ikea carcasses and bespoke door fronts, and we sourced matt black handles to match the matt black hardware used throughout. The white oiled oak floor & Carl Hansen Wegner chairs contrast with the original Georgian fire surround and skirting boards.

Frank Sinatra was apparently quoted as saying 'Orange is the happiest colour' and I think that couldn't be more true when you look at the orange and copper tones in this recently refurbished kitchen diner. It wasn't the easiest brief, 'Scandinavian style meets 1970's retro' but thankfully we have combined our customers favourite things in this eclectic yet undeniably 'happy' space.

STRATFORD KITCHEN A mid-century inspired kitchen, designed for a mid-century house. We love mid-century style, and so when we were approached to design this kitchen for a beautifully revived mid-century villa in Warwickshire, it was a dream commission. Simple, clean cabinetry was brought to life with the gorgeous iroko timber, and the cabinetry sat on a matt black plinth – a classic mid-century detail. A walk-in pantry, lined in single-depth shelving, was framed behind sliding doors glazed with traditional reeded glass. Refrigeration and storage was contained in a long run of tall cabinets, that finished in a mirror-backed bar with integral ice bucket But the show-stealer was a set of bespoke, handmade shelves that screened the kitchen from the hallway in this open plan home. Subtly detailed, like only real furniture-makers can, with traditional jointing and mid-century radiused edges.

Vahena Marsili Interiors
Conversion of a five-bedroom, five-bathroom B&B into a single-family home in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. The objectives of the renovation were to complete extensive repairs to the roof structure to prevent it from slowly collapsing on the house below and to move the living areas upstairs to immerse the entertaining spaces in nature. Natural light and treetop views now suffuse this mid-century modern inspired Tewkesbury home. A new kitchen picture window to the front elevation and sets of large windows to the back and side elevations flood the “upside-down” home with constantly changing natural light and capture a treetop outlook in the front and garden views at the rear. The sofa, armchairs, nest of tables, sideboard, dining table and chairs are all Ercol original furniture pieces. In true mid-century modern fashion, the space is enclosed by slatted screens and lightly zoned through the arrangement of furniture and rugs, above which the eye can pass through unhindered. The design of the kitchen was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s abstract geometric compositions with Yellow, Blue and Red. Mondrian’s paintings are characterised by flat black horizontal and vertical lines that create a grid filled with coloured forms. In the vein of Mondrian’s art, anthracite grey handle channels are used to build a grid that frames all the drawer and door fascia. The vast expanses of grey are subsequently broken by the introduction of rectangles of bright colours in spice tones that create a new equilibrium.

This view shows the play of the different wood tones throughout the space. The different woods keep the eye moving and draw you into the inviting space. We love the classic Cherner counter stools. The nostalgic pendants create some fun and add sculptural interest. All track lighting was replaced and expanded by cutting through beams to create good task lighting for all kitchen surfaces.
