We enjoy cooking as a family and eating our meals at the bar of our kitchen’s central island
Jessica and Alex’s wishes
Next we travel to Yorkshire, to admire the blue, white and wood kitchen belonging to Jessica, a dietician and keen creator of tasty homemade dishes.
Since the kitchen is the centrepiece of their house, it needed to be both stylish and functional. Having already had a Mobalpa kitchen, Jessica and Alex knew exactly which style they wanted for their new home.
A colourful kitchen, preferably teal, with an original, modern design, opening onto the living room to allow them to spend time with their two daughters and entertain guests.
The kitchen designer’s viewpoint: Naomi
This kitchen was designed as part of the construction of a new detached house. The couple had quite a specific idea in mind, wanting a very lively, blue kitchen.
The concept quickly took shape with the choice of fronts in light oak wood tones. Contrasting with the white worktop and the blue units, the wood brought a touch of warmth.

Neho stainless-steel handles

An ideal layout for family requirements
Working as a nutritionist, Jessica takes the time to cook fresh products. A generous worktop surface was therefore required, as well as a large integrated fridge. Food cupboards were important too, for maximum storage space in the kitchen.
No problem: the designer covered every base, with a 30 cm-wide sliding unit next to a tall unit, and internal drawers designed to suit her individual storage habits.
Any little extras? Low drawers for tableware, so that the children can set the table and contribute to kitchen activities.
What are the stand-out features of Naomi’s fit-out?
Above the central island integrating the cooker hob, a ceiling hood frees up space and ensures an excellent view of the kitchen from the living room.
Other little details which make all the difference include a pop-up socket built into the island for plugging in small "appliances".
... and open-shelf units, for the decorative touch Jessica adores.
A made-to-measure dressing room
Located in the master suite, between the bedroom and the bathroom, the dressing room needed to remain relatively simple for maximum functionality, while, of course, separating Madam’s from Mister’s areas.
Dressing-room: Matt Kashmir – Zora chest handles
Chic, timeless bathrooms
In the black, functional master bathroom, we find deep drawers and a double sink.
In terms of interior design, units and open shelves are cleverly superimposed, and black wall sockets are used.

Strass glossy chrome handles

A more “girly” look for the daughters pink painted walls, plain units with glossy white laminate fronts, a double basin so they can both brush their teeth at the same time…
A bathroom which will help them get to school on time and without any tantrums!
