This stunning painted kitchens by Lewis Alderson featured in Beautiful Kitchens magazine and combines a pale warm grey with the darkest shade of blue grey - there's a larder painted in a shade of aubergine too. http://www.kitchensourcebook.co.uk/2015/05/18/kitchen-of-the-week-painted-classic/
I like the fireplace and the storage for the firewood. But I live in South Carolina, so I'm thinking of how to adapt the hearth to our climate here. Perhaps a split mini heat pump that we can all sit around as it blasts out cold air?
