Steal This Look: A Deep Yellow Shaker Kitchen in London

February 1, 2022

In a kitchen designed for her mother’s Hampstead flat, designer Lonika Chande created a bold U-shaped Shaker-style kitchen in deep Indian yellow. The cabinets, bought through her builder, contain integrated appliances (refrigerator, pantry, washing machine, and dishwasher) and are offset with warm brass and cool stone countertops. Here we profile the key elements that complete the look.
