Steal This Look: A Pink Paint and Brass Kitchen in Cambridgeshire

February 15, 2022

One of our favorite renovation projects is the conversion of Georgian estate in Cambridgeshire from a monastic silent retreat location to a glamorous modern home. The kitchen is one of the newer components of the renovation, situated in the place of the religious order’s canteen area. Complete with warm pink cabinets, brass fixtures, and mirrors galore, the result is anything but ascetic. Here’s a look at the main sources to get a similar look at home:
