Embrace subtle tints and raw finishes and let the magnificent texture and grain of natural materials take centre stage in your kitchen

This ethereal Sebastian Cox by deVOL kitchen belongs to the Founder of online homes store Ingredients LDN, Nina Plummer and her husband, Craig, who live in a beautiful Georgian property in Edinburgh. The English beech cabinets are finished in a quiet wash of colour (the ‘Natural’ tint) and are perfectly complimented by the Carrara marble worktops and waterproof Marmorino Venetian plaster finish.

This former upholstery factory in Hoxton Square was completely renovated by Mark Lewis Interior Design with a nod to the bare bones of this former industrial space. The wonderful raw, unfinished brickwork is contrasted with the honed marble work surfaces and bronze fixtures, while the bespoke cabinetry was created from reclaimed vintage floorboards.

Doesn’t this kitchen feel calm? Designed by Plain English, the punchy colours of the units (Coal ScuFle and Rusty Nail devised by Adam Bray for Plain English) are mellowed by the abundant wood grain, which adds texture, pattern and serenity to the space. We particularly like the open and freestanding elements, such as the island, shelving and lighting, which make the whole room feel light and and airy.

While this kitchen throws the spotlight on the natural wood and beautifully grained slab of marble on the minimal island, it retains a polished finish, which looks incredibly elegant. This scheme by Naked Kitchens proves that the natural kitchen look doesn’t have to mean rustic, and that sleek island allows the light from the sliding doors to flood through the space.
