A Blend Of Urban Industrial & Modern Rustic Kitchen Design

Interior Designer Lucy Dickinson first walked through the doors of Burlanes Sevenoaks back in 2014, and worked with our Sevenoaks design team to transform an unused bedroom in her beautiful family home, into a practical, hardworking home office space.
