A stunningly photographed guide to designing and styling the most used and important room in the home. Showcasing the philosophy and fundamentals of deVOL's iconic values, design principles and now widely recognised kitchen styling, this book is for anyone who values great design and beautiful styling and craftmanship, for those looking for inspiration for their own kitchen project and everyone who has discovered deVOL's For The Love of Kitchens TV series.
From total rebuilds to a more modest sink and cupboard upgrade, it will inspire you to design and style the space available to create a unique and stylish kitchen whatever your budget. Encouraging you to throw out the conventional rule book, draw your own plans and incorporate fitted and existing free-standing furniture and found objects to create a beautiful unique room that is perfect for your needs. With inspiration on how reorganise or elevate a current kitchen using colour, a single brass fitting, a decorated cupboard, a new light or piece of furniture to effortlessly style up for glamour or down for simplicity.
