The countertops
In this stunning space, metallic countertops make a wow-worthy addition to a multi-textured kitchen. "We felt it might be too much everywhere, so we added wood and stone to make it more unusual," explains home-owner Rosie. "They all go together well, functionally and aesthetically."

The Cole & Son Cow Parsley wallpaper relief to the shelves is just one of the eclectic and uplifting elements of the kitchen



Naturally, one pro of a copper worktop is that glimmering filter-style glow it adds to the room. "It’s amazing, the light flows in and bounces off the copper," says Rosie. "It baths everything in a rosy glow. It’s like we’re suddenly living in technicolour".

Although fixed, the extractor seems to float, echoing the grand proportions

The lighting

This open-plan space combines a mix of statement colours and textures: deep navy on the cabinetry and a mix of exposed brick and glossy white on the walls. Warming up the room perfectly are those reflective rose gold light fittings - aren't they perfect? See more of this transformation here.

As well as making a sleek style statement, it can also help to really make a richly coloured splashback pop.
