One of Lindsay’s latest projects called for use of a specific colour which our clients just love! Green! It’s important to our design team to take inspiration from the unique styles our clients bring to us and incorporate the things, like colour schemes, that they specifically request. The Vaughan’s Green kitchen includes both our Comet doors in Pearl Grey and our Laser Soft door in Aquamarine. The worktops are Silver Birch Corian and the client incorporated some of their own appliances as well as couple of new pieces provided by us!
Here’s what Mark had to say…
We had previously used Pittville to do an en-suite and a down stairs bathroom which we were very pleased with, so we decided to approach them for doing our kitchen and utility room. We had a good idea of the style of fixtures and what type of work surface we wanted (Corian). Lindsay was fantastic in helping us choose the colour contrast of the units and gave us great solutions to help us best utilise the space. We eventually went with a high spec for the kitchen but with a more base range for the utility room Lindsay cleverly matched the two styles so they looked very similar . The end result is a fabulous kitchen and much better organised utility room. The fitting team were very efficient led by James and communication throughout the fitting was excellent, thank you Pittville for a job well done.
Take a look at the transformation…
So you’ve been the Pittville, Cheltenham Showroom, worked with our kitchen and bathroom designers, everything has been installed and you’ve got your new Pittville Bathroom or Kitchen styled to a T! Now what about the rest of your house? We’ve put together a few of our favourite home styling tips to help get you started…
Don’t be afraid to put a real stamp on your home! They say ‘home is where the heart is’ so let all the little quirks of what makes you, you spill out into your home.
Balance is good!
Consider each space individually and ensure you have decluttered enough to keep things streamlined (remember, less is usually more!) whilst having enough pieces on show to give your home the character you are after.
Shake it up!
Try mixing it up with different textures. You may have sleek stone worktops in your kitchen but perhaps you have a couple of fur throws over your dining chairs and some cool geometric wallpaper to add a third texture to the mix! This will not only help your home feel more balanced but will keep it from becoming too clinical.
Let the light flood in! But don’t be afraid of the dark!
We all know our homes look so much better when the sun light is streaming through the windows. Our advice is to take every opportunity to get more natural sunlight into your home, however, don’t be afraid to pair this with strategically placed dark pieces or paint colours. This can add some real drama and depth to your space.
All to often our go to for furniture placement is to push everything up against the walls but this doesn’t always do justice to the space and can make conversation across the room tricky. If your space doesn’t feel like it’s quite working why not try finding a focal point, perhaps a coffee table or fireplace and anchor your furniture off that rather than automatically using the walls as the anchoring points. See what difference it could make.
