We take a look at this fresh and inspiring kitchen design book from the author of the ‘My Cool’ series and co-author of George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces…
My Cool Kitchen – a style guide to unique and inspirational kitchens – is a breath of fresh air in comparison to some kitchen-inspiration tomes. Not only does it feature stylish kitchens from around the world but it also highlights the fact that taste, not a huge budget, is key to creating your dream – or ‘cool’ – kitchen.
As well as giving the reader an overview of certain ‘looks’ and general inspiration, the book also include masses of clever interior decorating tips and features that include innovative upcycling, clever storage options and ingenious ways to make the most of the space available.
Styles range from Bauhaus and 20th Century Modern to ‘London Townhouse’ (the designer Abigail Ahern’s house in east London), pared-back Scandinavian chic to beach house simplicity. There is a kitchen to inspire everyone, whatever house you have. Best of all, the book is full of joy, colour, inventiveness and individuality. What more could one want from an interiors book?
