British furniture maker Daval partnered with Raycross Interiors to create this airy kitchen, with the former's 'Sherwood' kitchen collection serving as a springboard to inspire the redesign of the latter.
The project in a nutshell
The property: A 1970s-built family home in West Byfleet, Surrey
The brief was simple: the homeowners craved complete functionality in their space, with of-the-moment appliances (such as two single ovens, a warming drawer and a built-in microwave) essential for providing the seamless user experience they so longed for.
The 'Sherwood' collection was key to the space, tying the whole look together and providing a beautiful natural-looking base on which the rest of the kitchen could be developed.
We just adore how the colours work together; the neutral sophistication of the Sherwood pieces provide the perfect match to the clean white Blanco surfaces, don't you think?
Porcelain-effect floor tiles provided the perfect finish, with the look seeping outwards from the kitchen-diner into the hallway and cloakroom for a 'truly holistic look and feel'.
From the word 'go', designer Graham Cross worked closely with the couple in order to guarantee they collaboratively create the precise space they imagined.
What truly impressed the homeowners was Graham's ability to stick to the timeline: "we were so impressed he kept his word with timings throughout the entire project," they explain. "He really specialises in paying close attention to the details at every stage of the project, and visited us early on during our building work to ensure our builders were preparing properly for him."
