Restoring a Colonial Home to its Former Grandeur

As covered by Trends, this kitchen by Ingrid Geldof and Davinia Ferguson won an NKBA regional award, including the granite topped dining table, a clever solution to a small space.

Authenticity is everything when you wish to restore a colonial home to its former grandeur. It was also the brief given to designers Ingrid Geldof and Davinia Ferguson who won the NKBA Canterbury regional award for the design of the kitchen featured above left.

As well as opening up the kitchen space to create an L shape, the designers incorporated a large chopping block on an island as a centrepiece.

Other features include a working pantry, open shelving, plate racks and hand-painted cabinetry finished with wax for a natural patina. The kitchen also features a Rangemaster stove and decorative Italian tiles.
