Colourful London Warehouse Kitchen

This kitchen and dining area is part of a home in Hackney, East London, an area which has steadily been increasing in both popularity and gentrification across the last ten years. The owners, artist Francis Upritchard and her husband furniture designer Martino Gamper have gradually added to the space during the six years that they've been living there. The flat is actually part of a ex-Council (public housing) block but you'd never know given the warehouse feel and beautiful windows within the space. The kitchen details a palette of rustic browns, fresh greens, Prussian blue and bright yellow and orange. Upon the floor rugs from Morocco continue the colourful theme, adding warmth and texture as they do. My personal standout piece? Without a doubt it has to be the colourful cabinetry. But in all honesty, this whole space is packed with personality, colour, texture and warmth, all of which are key features to making a winning space. What do you like about this kitchen space?

  5. The dynamite pendant with blue cord caught my eyes and so were those gorgeous black framed windows in the loft space. So industrial and perfectly appropriate. LOVE

  7. Ohmygod this is killer! I love the rainbow stacked chairs contrasting with the wood and exposed brick and all of it really. So surprised this is ex-LA too - esp the ceiling heights!! (am still renting, but will admit that when I look at flats I tend to pass over the ex council ones just because I assume the ceilings will be oppressive... I guess I will change that from now on. Perhaps this will be the gamechanger for us - thanks Will!)
