The owners originally couldn’t see past a white kitchen but were later convinced by my suggestion of using soft tonal greys instead, these are teamed up with earthy autumnal tones seen in the accessories and cushions.
Warmth is created by the wire brushed timber shelving and cabinetry as well as the floor.
Both wood stains have been carefully eye matched to work together.
The hexagonal, black marble-look porcelain tiles add more texture and these are brought through into the pantry room to continue the theme.
Black is also found as an accent for many items in this kitchen, including the power points, black sink, mat boiling/chilled tap, and the striking double matt black steel shelf supports. This doubled up look is also seen on the fridge door handles.
Push-to-open Blum servo drive cabinetry is found above the fridge and ovens to make the high cabinetry easy to access.
To give the owners their walk-in pantry room, the bedroom that shares the kitchen’s back wall was reconfigured.
A wide sliding door into the pantry makes the small pantry feel roomier – it also showcases the striking black marble porcelain tiles and shelving that also appear in the kitchen.
We had to work around the owners’ existing dining table and chairs, so new cushions and accessories were sourced and introduced to bring the colours through and blend the old with the new.
I also decided to abut my homeowners' existing dining table to the island to create further room which adds to the wider room's spacious feel.
