The majority of people tend to stick to rather plain and under developed kitchen areas in fear that any unusual designs will be looked down upon or prove unsuccessful. However, a burst of creativity within interior design is allowing people everywhere to break the mould as they are given the chance to be different.
Adding an unusual feature to a kitchen area gives it a unique element that differentiates it from the typical, generic kitchen. This could involve anything slightly quirky, from bright orange tiles to a large chandelier. When designing a potential future kitchen creativity is essential as the area should represent personality and convey an individual style.
Small but significant differences
A random pop of colour throughout the room will bring the kitchen environment to life. This could be a bright and obvious colour such as orange or yellow or a more neutral colour like lilac or pale blue. This colour could be incorporated within the counter sides or feature in a coloured retro fridge.

For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall, where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures. Of these works he says:
So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.
1. The Great Bed of Ware
Made just prior to the turn of the century in 1590-1600, this Vredeman de Vries bed is among the most famous ancient beds in the world. This carved oak piece was originally painted and features stunning panels of marquetry. Currently housed in the British Galleries, this bed is best known for being quite enormous during its time, as it measures over 128 inches across. Shakespeare was so inspired by the bed that he makes a small mention of it in his infamous play ‘Twelfth Night.’
2. The Private Cloud
The Private Cloud is a German-designed and built bed that’s both simplistic and stylized. Notable for its use of curves and light wood finish, this bed was created to function like a rocking chair, as inhabitants can sway gently back and forth while they sleep.
