Mr & Mrs Gleghorn

This month we proudly present a little 'Ooh La La' from Kirkella.

The design was quite radical, it depended on the removal of an adjoining wall, moving a doorway, new ceilings, a lot of mess, then, Voila! an open plan dining area now graces Chateau Gleghorn.

The gorgeous character oak doors and panels were sourced in France where interestingly their practise is to plant 2 trees for every one that is cut down. Cunningly, our designer has hidden a necessary but intrusive nib wall inside the tall glazed feature cabinet. I would also ask that you consider the interesting positioning of pewter knobs - most effective.

Opposite the capacious wine storage is the versatile workspace of the central island, full of useful drawers and topped in reflective Black Tormalina quartz, perfect for buffets and preparation.

Neff provided the stainless steel appliances, a five burner gas hob, 2 ovens, dishwasher, large larder fridge and the very elegant cooker hood. The under-mounted sink with its unusually square, swan-necked tap is by Franke of Switzerland. The new flooring, complete with an elegant inlaid border is in luxurious Karndean.

Mrs G was so complimentary and has kindly allowed me to pass on her comments, "Everyone was so kind - we liked John very much, he listened to us and spent a lot of time putting it all together, making sure that everything was at the right height for me and I am also very grateful to Colleen who was lovely and gave me so much help with the tiles. The fitters were all really nice, so considerate and hard working. You made us feel so individual".

As is usually the case, our clients wanted something different and, due to a recommendation from their friends (thank you Mr & Mrs Shephard) another Mulberry masterpiece has been installed.
