Rachel Khoo's kitchen
We are very excited to show you this ‘Beautiful Pea Green’ kitchen, just perfect for The Owl and the Pussycat or better still Rachel Khoo and her online Khoollect lifestyle magazine!! We love the way Rachel has made this deVOL Shaker Kitchen so personal, if you ever watched Rachel’s TV program you will appreciate the eclectic mix of kitchenware and homely feel she is so good at creating. The fresh and very on-trend green cupboards and beautiful tiles by Milagros, a Mexican tile shop on the fabulous Columbia Road in Bethnal Green, East London are such a clever mix.
The worktops are reclaimed Iroko school counter tops, Rachel sourced these herself, sanded back and oiled they looked smart and polished, rather than rustic and worn. The beautiful Aged Verdigris Brass Classic Handles were made here at Cotes Mill by Steph and they worked perfectly with the whole feel of the room, a mixture of old and new made it feel less ‘brand new kitchen!’ more ‘nicely settled and at home’ in her North London headquarters. She plans to use this kitchen for all her promotions, photoshoots and filming. We love the fact that Rachel, who is cool and a little bit different from many TV chefs, chose to have a deVOL Kitchen, it’s proof of the classic, simple quality of our Shaker cupboards and how they appeal to cooks and chefs who work in kitchens for a living, quite an accolade.
The small island is the centrepiece for her to cook from, she needed everything to be close to hand, so when she is being filmed it’s easy to keep her in the frame at all times. This layout is perfect for filming but she also wants the room to be a personal kitchen too, so with the help of our designers Rachel has created a friendly and welcoming kitchen that is individual and delightful to look at and to spend time in.
