Considering the design emphasis now placed on achieving a good indoor-outdoor flow, it is probably not surprising to see nature influencing kitchen design trends.

The organic colours of the outdoors are finding their way into modern kitchens, helping to create relaxing, light-filled interiors where simple, uncluttered looks are the order of the day.

This new kitchen is a good example of the way kitchens can reflect their immediate outdoor environment. It features a mix of Laminex laminates inspired by natural colours and textures.

The benchtop, for example, is Laminex Stringy Bark, a textured bark-like design with natural hues that include smoky grey, peat and touches of fossilised brown. This contrasts the use of Laminex Moleskin, a light neutral laminate, on the lower cabinetry. Overhead cabinets feature Laminex Oyster Linea laminate, which has subtle, pale latte tonings and a light woodgrain appearance.
