MODERN COUNTRY CHIC
When YouTube’s most famous influencer family, The Saccone Jolys, bought a new home in picturesque Surrey, it was quite the renovation project. The incredibly outdated cream and yellow kitchen has since been transformed into a bright modern space, that’s ideal for a busy family of 12 (including six Maltese fur-babies).
Having recently purchased their dream ‘forever home’, Anna and Jonathan set out to put their own stamp on the house, adding personal touches to suit the needs and tastes of their busy family lifestyle perfectly. Whilst the layout of the large open-plan kitchen has remained the same, the space has been completely updated and refreshed with new cabinets, worktops, appliances and flooring. And of course, finishing touches in the chic style that Anna is known for.
The celebrity family envisaged a kitchen that balanced the perfect blend of traditional and modern elements, combining shaker doors with sleek white Quartz worktops, and metro tiles. The neutral, yet unique, Somerton Sage shade looks stylish, timeless and understated in this modern country kitchen, paired seamlessly with luxurious worktops and brushed steel hardware. The family have added a large, double bowl, ceramic Belfast sink to the kitchen in another nod to that traditional feel. They also installed lighting in the glass door cabinets and under cabinets, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere to the room.

Anna and Jonathan Saccone Joly worked closely with Magnet designer Sophie to replace the old-fashioned cabinets with modern shaker-style units, for a new up-to-date look. The addition of contemporary stainless-steel appliances, including a chic wine cooler, integrated hood, dishwasher, and double built-in microwaves, gave the kitchen space a practical and functional update to suit their lifestyle. Whilst an American fridge freezer and freestanding Rangemaster cooker both have the capacity to cater to this large family’s cooking requirements, and still look great as the perfect juxtaposition of traditional and modern shapes.
“The team here were incredibly pleased with their work in helping to create this stunning modern yet traditional kitchen in the country and we wish the family all the happiness in their new home for the future.”
Magnet’s wide variety of kitchen designs and installation options, paired with the unapparelled expertise of its designers, means that every family in any house size can create their dream forever kitchen. When you move into a new house, as The Saccone Jolys did, and you want to completely renovate your space to suit your family life, a transformation of the space can bring your personality to the heart of the home.
