Ready to take a virtual trip to the Hertfordshire hamlet of Barleycroft in Britain? If the final destination is this emerald kitchen, punch our ticket because this is exactly the farmhouse kitchen of our fall dreams. Built by English kitchen design company
deVOL, it ticks all the boxes of romantic farmhouse living.

It’s unusual to find kitchens located in the front of old U.K. houses, so the designers maxed out this gloriously large room with a generous island and harvest table that can seat a crowd. We love the texture of the raw dining table and comfy woven chairs.
A vaulted skylight floods the space with warm sunshine above the central island, while windows and glazed doors envelop two sides of the room. The island is made up of both bespoke and standard pieces and houses a large double sink. A breakfast bar allows the homeowners to pull up a stool and be together in the heart of the home.
The counters are made from Arabescato marble, and the stone swirls its way up the almost three-foot-tall backsplash. Pretty amber glass pendants with a scalloped, pie crust edge float over the dining table, while clear glass pendants light up the cooking zone in front of the Aga range (a British staple).
A bespoke glazed wall of uppers show off glassware. The Aga stove, which the family inherited from the previous owners, was re-enamelled to match deVOL’s
Bakehouse Green on the cabinets. Articulated black sconces add some industrial edge and can be adjusted to suit tasks.
Original windows look out to formal plantings and a walled garden. Wide plank floors in a greyed tone amp up the rustic charm of this kitchen. The quiet, neutral shade of the walls and flooring let the dynamic, deep green cabinetry shine.
Oak tambour doors conceal dishwashers and garbage bins. The apron farmhouse double sink is an authentic heritage touch.
Brass fixtures are a perfect complement to traditional materials like marble counters. The bridge faucet shines like jewelry against the natural Arabescato slabs.
There is beauty in age, which is proven by the patina of these well-used copper pots suspended by a brass rail.
Matte black bronze pulls stand out against the island’s elegant glazed drawers, which houses dishware, keeping it close to the dining table for efficiency when setting the table.
In this striking sightline into the kitchen, a dark pendant is like a punctuation point against the neutral walls. With ample natural light provided by the windows and glass doors, this kitchen has a sunny disposition and a view of the garden.
Located neatly by the front door, the boot room is an essential space to kick off muddy boots, dry the dog or grab a coat on the fly. We love the combination of timeless putty cabinets and herringbone brick floors. A lantern-style pendant and vintage boxes play up the classic charm of this space.
Tall cupboards painted
Mushroom max out storage and are punched with perforations for airflow.
Hinged seats conceal storage underneath the bench for cold weather gear like hats, scarves and gloves. A peg rail and shelf offer easy grab-and-go access.
