When designing this new kitchen, I just
knew it was going to be exceptional.
Such a bold statement in colour and
design insists on a sleek, sophisticated backdrop
and so I chose the seemingly uncomplicated
colour scheme of white on white.
With a zeal for combining contrasting
elements, this kitchen captures a look that is a
wonderful and eclectic mix of modern and
contemporary styles, allowing the space to flow
beautifully with the rest of the home.
My clients required plenty of special features in
the kitchen. The list begins with a drop-down
bulkhead, giving wonderful detail.
Stainless-steel posts and brushed kickboards
provide an industrial edge and a subtle dash of
These have been contrasted with detailed

It was a major consideration to combine the
two seemingly opposing elements, with the
incredible final result speaking for itself.
There is no shortage of space, with plenty of
shelving around the kitchen as well as a custom-
built butler's pantry to fit all the ingredients for a
cosy night in or full-scale soiree.
Colours were kept classic with white gloss
cabinet doors and Blum hardware. Simple details
such as aluminium handles give an extra bit of
Bosch appliances were selected for their
design and quality reputation and the oven,
cooktop, rangehood,dishwasher and refrigerator
give a continuous look.
Special treats were also afforded, including a
Bosch coffee maker for early mornings and when
guests drop by.
The kitchen contains the best of both worlds
with styles fitting together with ease for the
owners to enjoy for years to come.
