Can we take a moment to really appreciate the rustic good looks of the red brick exterior here? It looks so handsome against the stark black metalwork of the window frames and then a gentle softness simply envelops the interior. Is this an enormous kitchen? No, not in the modern sense, but it is fantastically open and eminently usable, especially with a large dining table sat opposite it and we love all the pretty details, such as the backsplash tiles. Take a look around and see which elements you'd look to copy!
You can get a hint as to the material of choice in this kitchen extension, just by looking at the outside, but even with a piquant Oriel window and matching door frame, we don't think you'd put money on the interior looking the way it actually does!

Organic, wholesome and charming, we know you'll love this one!
