    If like me, a chronic lack of power points, means you have to unplug the radio if you want to use your food mixer, you’ll appreciate the new S-Box Plus.

     

    The S-Box Plus is a smart counter-balanced compartment that can be customised to hold anything; a set of knives, an iPod charger, or a row of much-needed extra power points.

    Classic meets modern in stunning new Balham kitchen from deVOL

    by  • July 25, 2015

    We’re absolutely in love with this new Balham kitchen from bespoke specialists deVOL, which combines classic style, modern materials, and clever details to create a very special space.

    deVOL-Balham-5

    Here, deVOL’s signature Shaker-style units are painted in the classical Pantry Blue shade, creating an ideal background for the Bella Brass door furniture to gleam against. The antique brass taps provide another heritage metal flair, and the entire scheme is kept modern and fresh with a concrete worktop.

    deVOL-Balham-10

    The entire space is kept light and fresh thanks to the glass roof and Crittal-style doors that lead to the garden, and to a utility room, and the trio of sparkling glass pendant lights over the island.

    deVOL-Balham-2

    Antique wood touches lend warmth and a rustic feel, and we particularly love the built-in bookshelf, which provides a lovely characterful, lived-in touch.

    Aquitaine-Hot-Tap Perrin & Rowe BK Sourcebook

    Aquitaine tap in chrome, £874, Perrin & Rowe

    In this time-pressed era, boiling-water taps are the new kitchen heroes, offering instant hot water to cook and make hearty drinks with. In the past, their clean-lined (and often sterile) aesthetic seemed more at home in contemporary or industrial environments. Now British brassware manufacturer Perrin & Rowe has come up with these two little beauties that perfectly fill the gap in the market.

    Annoying, stubborn stains can be removed without any pre-treatment, thanks to Hoptpoint’s anti-stain system. It uses a pre-mix of water and detergent, to create a cleaning foam, which is injected directly into the wash.
