Pearl’s Bohemian Beach House
When Pearl told us that she and Danny had bought a holiday home just minutes from the beach and planned to have a deVOL kitchen, we were just a little bit excited. Would it, could it be as good as her last deVOL kitchen? We are pleased to report it was heaven and totally fitting for a summer hideaway to fill with house guests and family.
Pearl and Danny’s main home in Somerset and its kitchen, have been some of the most loved and cherished photographs we have ever shared. Pearl has an exceptional eye for making a room look casually amazing, she also has an enviable address book of vintage haunts and hideaway places, to ensure she has a never-ending supply of textiles, furniture and quirky unusual objects and decorative ornaments.
This Shaker kitchen is simply designed, just one long run of Linen cupboards and a Scullery Yellow prep table with a copper worktop. Pearl and Danny chose our Cotes Mill Tiles because they are tactile, pale and have a sort of beachy feel to them. They also opted for a fluted sink and a beautiful luminescent marble that kept the whole space feeling airy and light.
We love the kitchen and its endless little vignettes that make photographing so appealing and satisfying, but it is Pearl’s ability to create a functional family kitchen that is also seriously desirable and totally welcoming and comfortable that is most impressive. You instantly want to stay and hang out, you want to admire the space but you feel drawn to its homely and comforting vibe. This is a gift, acknowledging every aspect of a room’s function and not just making it look good. That is the true sign of a talent in our opinion and also a testament to Pearl’s love of family and friends and gathering them together in a warm and inviting and totally cool space.
