In this dramatic transformation, designer Charlie Coull overhauls a closed-off Victorian kitchen and turns it into an open-concept space ideal for entertaining. See how black-panelled patio doors set the stage for the kitchen’s high-contrast palette, while open shelving in a light oak finish keeps the gathering space from looking too dark. Touches of unlacquered brass and natural stone will patina over time, paying homage to the home’s rich history. Plus, you’ll be inspired to play host once you see the lively dining area’s spacious communal table!
