For Merlin Wright, design director for British firm Plain English Designs, which is poised to launch its very first New York studio this spring, the most beautiful kitchens show restraint. "Some American kitchens focus on elaborate details, which can overpower the subtleties of the architecture," he tells MyDomaine. While Wright admits there's no typical British kitchen, Plain English projects certainly embody a different aesthetic than that in the U.S. "What we do are very understated Georgian-inspired kitchens," he says of the bespoke, made-to-measure service. Think classic Georgian joinery, brass and leather pulls, and muted colors that reflect the beautiful British landscape.
