Complement a period home without sacrificing moderm trimmings
From the moment you enter this kitchen it is clear that it’s the scene of many a culinary masterpiece. The owners of the home are avid entertainers and desired a kitchen to complement their period home, while still including all the modern trimmings. The clean white cupboards and timber fl ooring perfectly complement the style of the home. All those modern appliances we have become accustomed to have been carefully fi tted out in this cleverly laid out space.
The kitchen is clean, crisp and inviting – its French provincial style encapsulates a warm romantic feel. The doors and panels are Farmers Waratah in Crème Mocha and feature a hand painted fi nish, with the pewter handles adding to the period feel. Antique brown granite bench tops provide a modern contrast to the white and cream tones of the cabinetry and walls.
The large island bench is perfect for entertaining. It provides additional storage and bench space – perfect for when friends drop over or for that regular Saturday night dinner party. The second sink is perfect for extra dishes or for washing vegetables and straining pasta.
Modern stainless steel appliances, including stove top, fridge and dishwasher, give a contemporary edge and are easily updatable in the future. Light hues create a light and airy space that looks larger than it actually is, with natural and artifi cial lighting combined to ensure the kitchen serves as an easy work space during all times of the day and year.
A warm French provincial feel combined with modern touches and clean lines create a truly beautiful kitchen. The owner was heavily involved in the design of the space, with its warmth and charm a refl ection of the family. This classy kitchen is testament to the inspirational owner, whose dream was achieved as a result of her design fl air and love for her husband and children. Perfect for entertaining or day-to-day family cooking, this is a space of true indulgence.
