Mr and Mrs Bird were investing in a kitchen that would age gracefully, the subtle tone of the sage painted oak works well with the contrasting Rosa Limbara granite work top. The sage colouring has an affinity with all things natural and is calming and friendly. Behind the doors there is a beautiful contrasting oak colour carcase. The granite backsplash behind the hob saved bringing in another colour and texture, whilst still giving a sensible, easy to clean surface. Lighting in the glass wall unit draws the eye to the warmth of the oak cabinetry. The open wine rack helps to enforce the warmth of the oak.
