in the kitchen with rachel khoo. / sfgirlbybay

this is such a cheerful, almost kitschy kitchen, isn’t it? it definitely has those retro vibes with the pea-green backsplash tiles by Milagros, a Mexican tile shop on London’s fabulous Columbia Road and deVOL cabinets, peppered with vintage-inspired cooking accouterment adorning simple shaker shelving. the folks at UK-based deVOL who make this lovely bespoke kitchen cabinetry sent it over to me and i thought it would be fun to share. it’s the new kitchen belonging to celebrity chef, Rachel Khoo, who chose to work with deVOL on the new kitchen for her Khoollect lifestyle magazine headquarters. This darling pea-green kitchen is full of personality and charm and the perfect place for Rachel to rustle up her delicious dinners both on and off screen. for more beautiful kitchen inspiration visit deVOL.

how’d you like to take refuge in this natural beauty for a while? recently featured in architectural digest espana it’s the modern home of serge castella, a French interior designer who clearly loves collecting beautiful handcrafted objets d’art — unique furnishings that while are quite a blend of genres, all pair so well together — perhaps because all the pieces are such a neutral and lovely blend of natural materials. and that kitchen? I’ve never seen such beautiful woodwork! located in Ampurdán, spain secluded and surrounded by acres of open land, you can view the entire home tour on architectural digest espana.
