A New Kitchen: This is How It’s Done

Balham is one of those special places in London that has a confluence of histories and cultures all living in community with one another.   The home I had the pleasure of photographing over the course of several and renovated by Cube, is located in the southwest part of the town, not far from Tooting Bec on a quiet terrace of Victorian houses.  I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a project that had a greater contrast from before to after construction and decoration.  It also happened to be a house in which I’ve come closest to the kitchen of my own dreams in terms of colour, style and architecture.  So many times homeowners choose a stark, contemporary kitchen which looks fabulous, but which doesn’t always coalesce with the rest of their period property.  This house manages to avoid that trap — splendidly!!
