It is a kind of personal project, creating a kitchen for one self. In my case, I live in a sixties house with large windows and floor heating, carefully renovated bit by bit during the ten years it has been ours. When it finally was time to do the kitchen, I wanted to make a matching kitchen to the story of the house and of myself. And of course, I gave it a project name, “Djupa Småland”, which roughly translates to “in the deep forest of Small land”, being the area of my origin. When I for my inner eye visualise Småland, I see the warm dense forest, backlit by en evening sun over the haze of a still lake. Sharp contrast, pale colours alongside monochromatic coloured stones. Blond wood, and soft ripples of a water on the stones, and the scent of a misty morning. That is exactly the kind of kitchen I aimed for.
I considered the work flow of cooking, the social aspect of a kitchen of today, and the blending between the work area and the dining area - made by interweaving wood, colours and stone, creating and angular edge on floor and even up on the cupboard drawers, blending the two areas together. Kind of like the tree line of a Småland forest. And my long time friends at Vedum was the brand to supply the parts and solutions needed. Thank you.
