There's a quiet poise to this kitchen that I shall admit to coveting. The gentle light, low-key colors and comforting forms [those arched doorways are so peaceful] combine to create a room with a retreat-like atmosphere. After a weekend of compiling the results of the KBCULTURE Awardsand preparing for the annual trek to the kitchen and bath trade show, KBIS [this year it's in that toddlin' town, Chicago], I'd love to take a break in such a well-designed space. neptune.co.uk
