Above, this incredible kitchen features some of our favourite elements. Cult classic Cambria Brittanicca is the superstar central focus of this space in our beautiful Matte surface finish. The choice of a Matte finish in this space really elevates the already sophisticated choices. Soft-touch and silky smooth, the Matte finish is the best way to enjoy the modern industrial trend for low-sheen surfaces, without the headache, maintenance and fragility of other materials.

We love this modern farmhouse kitchen! Classic elements are layered expertly to create a space which feels both unique yet approachable. Dark cabinets are essential in this space to draw together the black accented French doors & fixtures. The herringbone floor is a special way to make a familiar material feel fresh and modern.

If you love the look of this space, but prefer the durability, warranty & maintenance free properties of Cambria, we would suggest: Ironsbridge, Ella, Brittanicca

Above, this space uses a rich deep olive tone on the cabinets. While still dark, moody and bold, the green tone of these cabinets is softer than a crisp black. We love that they still anchor the space, but don’t feel heavy or overwhelming. It appears that this kitchen is on the smaller side - so using a softer dark neutral like olive was a clever way to keep this space from feeling too visually heavy.

If you love the look of this space, but prefer the durability, warranty & maintenance free properties of Cambria, we would suggest: White Cliff, Whitehall, Swanbridge. We also think that Skara Brae would look incredible with the olive cabinets.

In this bar area, the designers really had fun! There are a lot of design elements - but due to the small scale of this area and the high ceilings, it works! Deep navy cabinets pop against brushed gold hardware, while the deep tones of the lowers are carried through to the ceiling by glossy black subway tile! We love this bold area, and think that mitered edge countertop is an excellent way to visually separate cabinets from dramatic tile.

If you love the look of this space, but prefer the durability, warranty & maintenance free properties of Cambria, we would suggest: Delgatie, Swanbridge, Weybourne or Torquay

Lastly, this space is a gorgeous example of how dark cabinets can still allow a space to feel spacious, bright and airy. These navy cabinets look crisp and chic paired with bright white and marble design elements. Weathered wood floors and blonde floating shelves complete this gorgeous space.

If you love the look of this space, but prefer the durability, warranty & maintenance free properties of Cambria, we would suggest: Ironsbridge, Ella, Brittanicca

We hope you loved these kitchens as much as we did!
