An artist's residence

We simply couldn't resist sharing this absolutely delectable kitchen with you.

Artist Daisy Sims-Hilditch designed this delightful space along with her father, Neptune founder, John Sims-Hilditch. We just love the charming combination of the traditional Shaker-style cabinetry with that soft and pretty turquoise from Edward Bulmer, our Contemporary Classic tiles in Chalk White and those gorgeous brass ribbon drawer-pulls from Beata Heuman.

Daisy is a portrait and landscape artist based in London. She paints from life with remarkable realism, and her work is a beautiful and elegant celebration of light.

"I wanted the space to be a haven away from the busy rush of London life, and a creative and inspiring place for me to think about my work," says Daisy. "I find this colour palette to be wonderfully uplifting."
