Bistro Kitchen

Stylish, chic with a utilitarian charm the relaxed 'bistro' inspired kitchen. Bring the vibrant cafe culture to your own home with delicatessen graphics, utility cookware and no fuss linens.. Colour palette: chalkboard black, cappuccino and latte, stainless steel grey, herb green and milk white. Cook, eat, relax and enjoy! (This is a long post so it may take some time to load!)

For more information on anything shown in the above images and links to tutorials, please click on the names under each photograph to go through to their respective web sites. I create my mood boards/colour palettes with a computer programme called Photoshop by Adobe which is available for both Apple Mac and PC computers.

The colour swatches shown above I create as a suggestion for furnishings, carpets, ornaments, fixtures, fittings and paints. They do not come from manufacturers charts but I am sure that if you want to use them for paint colours that your favourite supplier will be happy to help match them.  

As always, if I have featured your photograph and you would rather I didn't, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will remove it with my sincerest apologies. 

With warmest wishes

Wow, I love the styling of Capital Kitchen. I would like to recreate something like this on a much smaller scale for my larder when we reach that stage in the build. As for the coffee and nutella macaroons, yes please.

Have a great weekend, are you going to Burghley?
