This kitchen is a stunning example of traditional design brought into a functional family home, with traditional detailing and a warm colour palette to deliver a kitchen that is timeless and visually appealing across generations. The sage green cabinetry harmonises with the warm blonde timber flooring to create a space with style and conviviality. The colour palette, the cabinets and the upholstered dining booth, work to retain the best elements of the original Canberra cottage. The abundance of natural light and the wonderful high ceilings, create the perfect feeling of home and set the scene for many shared family dinners.
This striking, modern kitchen utilises a holistic design approach, to create a seamless blend between the kitchen and living space. The perfectly positioned skylights, cast light on the brass detailing throughout the kitchen, and provide warmth amongst the moody colour palette. The interior masonry provides tactical passive heating and cooling by acting as an isolated thermal mass. The kitchen has a generous curved island bench under the dolomite bench top, which allows for comfortable seating around the kitchen. The space exudes functionality with ample cabinets and drawers and an easy flow into the living room.
This extraordinary kitchen provides all the functionality and latest technology that a modern foodie family could ever want. It is described as ‘the ultimate entertainer’s space’, with two generous islands to accommodate many happy gatherings. The second island acts as a standup workspace with integrated power so that the family can cook and do homework together. The space utilises a contemporary colour palette of crisp white, rich blackwood timber and beautiful stone benchtops with grey veining. The pantry is cleverly concealed with charcoal, grooved paneling, with the stunning wine fridge being the focus of the wall.
