A delightfully bright and cheerful Victorian kitchen extension in Chiswick

This Victorian kitchen extension features floor to ceiling Crittall doors, a pink kitchen, and a striking breakfast bar...

The property

When Beulah founder Natasha Rufus Isaacs decided to carry out a Victorian kitchen extension on her Chiswick family home, who better to bring on to head up the project than interior designer Rebecca Hughes – the designer behind Beulah's stunning shop interiors?

They were planning to extend their Victorian house and wanted a rear extension and a side return. Rebecca came on board to help with the configuration, colour palette, choosing the right glazing, and of course the kitchen design.

The new kitchen extension features floor to ceiling Crittall doors, a pink kitchen, and a striking breakfast bar... 

Kitchen

Natasha loved the design for her Beulah shop and asked for a similar colour scheme for this kitchen. She wanted to go bold in the kitchen, and wanted a similar colour pink on the kitchen cabinets as was used in the Beulah shop.

Interior designer Rebecca Hughes wove in accents of racing green on the bar stools and dining chairs, and paired vintage-inspired finds like the antiqued / foxed mirror and kitchen sofa with more modern interior design ideas like the polished concrete floor and brass wall sconces.

The effect is a contemporary look but with plenty of character.

Get the look: Sconces are from Arteriors, in the Chelsea Design Centre. Find similar dining chairs at Oka. The prints above the sofa are by Lucy Auge – the designer loves using these, and often buys postcards and prints to frame.

The colour of the kitchen cabinets was inspired by the Farrow & Ball colour setting plaster.

Rebecca commissioned a joiner to custom make the kitchen cabinets. She tells us: "Using a joiner is more cost-effective than buying from a kitchen brand, and allows more freedom in design too."

LIVING ROOM

Natasha and her family wanted lots of pattern and texture in the main modern living room.

The blue cushions on the sofa and the matching lampshades were made using remnant fabric from her brand Beulah, tying the two together.

Rebecca Hughes continued the theme of greenery from the kitchen and pulled it into the living room with a large fiddle leaf and some smaller potted plants.

Snug

A snug connects through to the living room, and is the main family space where the three daughters like to play and watch TV.

This space also features cushions that were created out of remnant fabric from Beulah.

Downstairs loo

The cloakroom features Gucci's iconic heron print wallpaper. Rebecca tells us: "The cloakroom is the one area of the home you should really go bold on, and have a little fun with."
