Working on a kitchen, living room, bedroom…or even just a sink for netilas yadayim? These design ideas, by London designer Esther Taylor, may inspire you.
Sometimes…it’s a detail you see here or there that makes all the difference.
The Symmetrical Kosher Kitchen Design
In this kitchen design, we used grey textured wood, leathered Caesarstone on the worktop and Carrara marble for the backsplash and walls. We also used a wood look tile on the floor.
When it comes to the layout of a kosher kitchen, considering how much cooking we do, it’s important not to have to walk too far from the fridge–to the sink–to the oven. In design terms, this is called “The Magic Triangle.” It is also important that when you take something out of the oven there is an immediate surface where you can put the dish on.
The Sleek Sink
This is a netilas yadayim/powder room area. Here to keep the look sleek we had the sink made out of the tile that we used on the wall. We ran a strip of bronze mirror from the top to the bottom of the elevation and a black tap to set it all off. For storage, we added an angled drawer. Simple, clean lines create a chic, sophisticated area.
The Sleek Sink
Here we kept the palette monochromatic but added to the scheme with the layering of the textures. Lots of textures have been used but because they are tonal in color they complement each other. We then set the neutral scheme off with a pop of dark wood. The function of this room is a den with a lot of storage. When building a home my advice is that you make sure that you have plenty of storage–if everything has a place – there will be no mess.
Simple, Soft, Hotel-Like
Here we created a beautiful chic master bedroom by layering luxurious fabrics and playing with scale of print. Proportion in a room is very important – don’t keep everything one level – lift the scheme by adding lamps or artwork. Here we kept the palette very simple and soft yet achieved a hotel-like finish with keeping the lines concise.
