When Sheila Wolfson downsized from a large family home she wanted her new kitchen extension to provide a backdrop for the collection of china and artefacts she had collected over the years. The new home reflects her eclectic tastes but also has a contemporary feel and includes innovative products chosen with her architect Yvonne Dane, such as the kitchen worktops which were custom made from pigmented concrete with a matt sealed finish which provides a unique and practical surface.

The extension leads out onto a sunny courtyard garden filled with furniture and ornaments collected by Sheila from auction houses and junk shops in London.

Jardinique have a wonderful range of antique and new hand made garden furniture at
Contemporary ironmongery was sourced from SDS Ironmongery who supply items for all areas of the house and although based in London have a mail order service on their extensive website. Any questions about locks and fittings can also be answered by their trained staff.

Kitchen units and freestanding furniture came from Ikea and the hardwood flooring from the Natural Wood Floor Company

Sheila's kitchen window adjacent to the neighbouring property is made from obscure glass block from Simply Glass Blocks who have a wide range of textures and colours 

The lovely French china and antique enamelware aren't so easy to source and have taken years to collect but Home Cook supply traditional items at their online shop for a similar look.

Tubular radiators were supplied by the Radiator Factory who have a large range of unusual modular radiators and towel rails available
