I've started to map out the interior spaces of the extension including the kitchen. Benny came up with the design and chose the finishes of the last kitchen and we were so happy with it - apart from the leather handles which were my idea and turned out to be an epic fail in terms of functionality. I think they broke and were replaced twice!
This time around we have a bit more time up our sleeves so we have the luxury of researching and designing it together. This house definitely has more heritage details so I’m really wanting to feature these and keep everything very classic. Back when I was nannying in London a loooooong time ago we had an amazing double fireclay sink and I’ve always wanted one since. Not sure how my other half feels about them, time to meld our two tastes together and see what comes out. There’ll no doubt be a few arguments but I love this part of the process and creating something that is uniquely ‘us’.
