When the warm weather arrives, our homes are filled with life and light. The kitchen area morphs to give open spaces more prominence. This is the case of this project designed and carried out by Chone de la Sotilla in Sant Cugat, a kitchen warm and comfortable in winter, mixing oak wood and white coria, fresh and cheerful in summer, with its fantastic opening onto the garden, the epicentre of snacks and relaxing in the shade of a mulberry tree.
Kitchen than open up to summer
ARTICLE 03 MARCH 2015
A touch of green and light
In summer, the dining table in the kitchen becomes the showcase to serve all kinds of exquisite delicacies, to be consumed in the open air. Everything is very well thought out: the proximity of the glass cabinet with the dinner service close to the garden furniture helps with operation "snack on the grass".
Thanks to the soft tone of oak wood, the dining area becomes a natural passage between the kitchen and the garden. It is a bright sunny kitchen that inspires us to enjoy the good weather, be soothed by the evening breeze and watch the shooting stars in the short summer nights.
Drinking tea in the garden
...Taking tea in the open air is a celebration, a break in our daily routine to share time with friends and family around a perfectly set table, tablecloth and generous linen napkins, white tableware, candles ... all the props necessary for our little "Palais d´ete" in the purest style of Marie Antoinette.
The grass, trees, flowers ...
... all this natural green decoration encourages us to enjoy natural and healthy products, such as bread mixed with dried fruits.
A good lemonade
Before the heat really starts, nothing better than a good refreshing lemonade! It is time to experiment with new combinations of flavours and play with the colour of fresh fruit.
And, why not?
Indulge in some mouth-wateringly sweet cake or chocolate pudding, all home made of course.
Which one will we use? The spirit of the open plan kitchen is relocated to the outside, where the table is laid with a predominantly white setting that magnifies with even greater force the rabid green ivy.
Just like a scene from a film, even though we are surrounded by a city, we could be mistaken for thinking that we were in some quaint English countryside setting.
The kitchen has a sombre design with well defined clean lines, contrasting to a setting very marked by green, which penetrates through the large windows. The fresh flowers will feel quite at home.
Kitchen with an island
In the heart of this natural environment, an island: Centred in the middle of the kitchen, providing a large space where you can cook (by induction or steam) and prepare food thanks to a water point. In addition, you can eat informally, sitting on a pleasant stool. The fume extraction is resolved with a discreet perimetral under roof extractor fan. Fresh seasonal herbs, flowers; summer is present in every nook and can be sensed everywhere.
