A renovated Arts and Crafts House in Dublin -
Designed by - Rhatigan & Hick and Aine Sweeney, Interior Designer
This Transitional New York loft style kitchen in Dublin encompasses the best in modern family living. A beautifully crafted, handmade kitchen by acclaimed Furniture Makers, Rhatigan & Hick emphasizes the height and volume in this light filled 400 sq. ft extension. The style is strikingly simple but uncompromising in its open plan nature.
This kitchen is designed to display, not hide the families motley collection of white and blue porcelain ,pewter, brass and mixed china ware. The soft palette of greys, greens and Off Whites harmonizes with the garden beyond the double french doors and reflects the light that pours through the Velux windows that cover the cathedral vaulted ceiling .
Equal attention to detail has been paid to the relaxed antique style of leather and wool dining chairs with orangerie table, the beautiful panelled joinery and built in furniture in the family room, the soaring aluclad graphite windows commissioned by the designer for this project and the distressed timber ceiling beams creating a beautiful, laid back room that the family spend most of their time in.
This home has been furnished with care and consideration shown to every detail from the soft-worn leather sofas and chairs, the calacatta marble worktops, wool and linen/ cotton blend soft furnishing inspired by colours from the Irish landscape.
Aged brass hardware finishes, oiled french wooden floors and a layered lighting scheme add to the comfort of this family home that effortless embraces and connects contemporary living with the original footprint of this lovely period house.
