Charlotte Crosland’s Kitchen Designs Sparkle
If you’re not constantly drawing inspiration from others in your field, then you’re not really growing. Peter Salerno believes that wholeheartedly, and he’s not afraid to let the world know who inspires him.
A new favorite artist of Peter Salerno’s is English-based interior designer Charlotte Crosland, whose work was featured in the September 2014 issue of Beautiful Kitchens, the UK’s best-selling kitchen magazine.
Charlotte provides us with some fantastic insights in the article, ranging from the importance of usable space to color palettes, from flooring to lighting. Here are 3 wonderful tips from the piece:
- Proportions are important in a kitchen, especially when it comes to the size of the island in proportion to the room.
- Avoid over-cluttering. Charlotte’s advice? “[D]on’t be scared of leaving things out in your kitchen.”
- There are major benefits to an “open-plan” kitchen. Accessibility, an inviting feel, and the space in which to move freely are vital to a functional kitchen.
