1. A kitchen with light wood cabinetry
The enviable kitchen in this newly built home combines timber elements with black detailing and practical terrazzo floors. The fitted cupboards are crafted from elm wood and the work surfaces are bush-hammered granite. The island has been designed to incorporate a counter space that facilitates long chats with the cook, everyday breakfasts or the kids’ homework sessions: being able to sit with one’s legs under the countertop can make a real difference to comfort levels.
The mix of pendant lamps in various forms over the kitchen island adds a subtle element of visual interest to an otherwise minimalist space. Highlights include the Shadows suspension lamps by Czech brand Brokis, the Hay bar stools and paintings by Hanneke Benade.
