An English kitchen by Newcastle creates a sleek look with a popular Scandinavian color scheme.
Pale gray painted Newcastle cabinets, white accents and light wood bespeak Scandinavian interiors which have appeared so often in magazines. That visual shorthand is so well established it’s only natural the palette would find its way into the kitchen.
Gray kitchens definitely have their adherents (Martha Stewart among them) and this English beauty offers a deft combination of uncluttered simplicity, open storage and serious 19th century furniture in the form of a “larder” cabinet, to the right of the stove. Styled to hold food, the larder has tall upper doors and enough space to house a microwave, mixer and other appliances — with dry foodstuffs. Root vegetables or other small items can be stored in half a dozen pull-out baskets below. I really like these pull out baskets which work well for vegetables and other items that require some air circulation in drawers.
We laud the combination of brushed knobs on cabinets along with rudimentary finger pulls in the shallow drawers just below open shelving above the prep sink.
On the island, the unapologetic towel rail along one side seems so common sensical. So let’s add this Newcastle Furniture kitchen to our fave list.
The strapping Mercury range may be familiar to UK kitchen mavens but it’s one not often seen on the Western side of the Pond. It sure would be fun to test drive a Mercury and this stainless beauty stopped me cold because I’m always stove-shopping and and looking at every possibility.
