For the whole month we’ve been offering 10% off everything needed to build beautiful oak kitchens: from wirework; to solid oak doors; to our entire range of wood kitchen units. You can create a unique, special look by choosing from a range of options (all of which are discounted accordingly) such as glazed frontals, bridging cabinets or doors that are hand-finished in Farrow & Ball paint. The only items that are excluded from the offer are worktops and worktop-related accessories, and samples (which are already fantastic value).

To enjoy the excellent savings that are on offer, simply enter the code SUMMER10 at the online checkout; or, if you’d like to place an order by phone or email, please mention the code to one of our sales advisers.

June’s Kitchen Gadget of the Month

Posted by admin on June 17, 2015 at 9:08 am. Filed under: General

Not everyone can afford to spend their summers eating fresh pasta and sipping a glass of Pinot Grigio by the side of an Italian lake; however – thanks to the Imperia Pasta Machine – recreating the tastiest parts of that experience within the comfort of your own home can be fun, too!


June's Kitchen Gadget of the Month: Imperia Pasta Machine

Capable of creating a variety of pastas (including spaghetti, tagliatelle or ravioli sheets), this chrome-plated pasta maker has a dial to fine-tune six thickness settings for kneading and rolling pasta into perfect proportions, and can also be clamped to a wooden worktop to keep it steady.

It also features dual rollers and a duo cutter, which ensures that your pasta dough cuts cleanly, and doesn’t get caught up in the machine.

Once ready fresh pasta takes half the time to cook when compared to normal dried pasta, and is lighter with a much more delicate texture.

As well as creating yummy fresh pasta, this particular kitchen gadget is one that looks superb in all solid oak kitchens, so you won’t be afraid to leave it out in between uses – in fact it might even impress your friends. Of course, if you’d rather pack it away for safe-keeping, the detachable handle and removable screw clamp make it easy to store.

Fancy giving it a whirl? It is available from John Lewis for £69.95.

If you already own a fresh pasta maker, we would love to see results of your culinary skills, so don’t hesitate to share a photo on one of our social media pages. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+. We are always on the lookout for new kitchen gadgets to feature as our ‘Gadget of the Month’, so if you come across a gadget that you think we should know about, then do let us know!

 

Colours of the Month: Cool Pastels for Solid Wood Kitchens

Posted by admin on June 10, 2015 at 2:26 pm. Filed under: General

Creating stunning solid wood kitchens requires a number of components: kitchen base cabinets, oak kitchen doors and drawer fronts and some beautiful wooden worktops. As well as these key elements, it is important to add your own individuality to the kitchen in the form of a well thought-out selection of colours, which will age gracefully and complement natural wood furnishings.

This June we have put together a colour palette from Farrow & Ball that is sure to bring a cool pastel hue to any kitchen.

Forget magnolia: New White is simply the perfect off-white shade for imbuing light and life into a kitchen, and mixes well with almost any other colour – be it light or dark. It is more creamy than White Tie but not as yellow as Farrow’s Cream and is ideal for classic kitchens with a farmhouse feel.

Ammonite is an understated grey hue that pairs beautifully with New White or All White, without appearing cold or industrial. Unlike many greys, Ammonite has more warm qualities and is best used for accents alongside clean white shades.

Our third and final pick is Cord, a light sandy brown that contrasts beautifully with our other two ‘Colours of the Month’, whilst adding more strength of colour. It is the ideal earthy neutral – with hints of sage and cappuccino – and complements solid wood cabinet frontals beautifully, particularly when paired with oak furnishing or darker timbers like walnut.

If you would like to get up-close with any of these colours, consider ordering a miniature painted cabinet door from our kitchen samples service. Each of our samples is hand-finished and can be painted in any of the colours featured in this blog, or in any others from Farrow & Ball’s extensive range. A wide variety of samples are also on display in our kitchen showrooms alongside a number of demonstration kitchens that a show just what is possible with our fantastic products.
