Coastal Chic

Looking for a modern twist on beach side living?  This kitchen oozes style, sophistication and coastal living all at the same time.

When you are renovating or building a new home, consider keeping the colour palette to a minimum and introduce a combination of natural and man-made textures to create interest.  In this home, internally the Dulux Lexicon white walls have been complemented with natural elements such as the timber floors, stone work and hardwood floors.

Also, consider using a feature colour to create contrast and interest.  Be bold and add colour to more than just one wall at a time. In this home we have used Dulux Raku both on the external and internal walls to bring continuity and rhythm.

Get this look with:

  • Polar White cabinets
  • Caesarstone Oyster benchtops
  • Dulux Lexicon on the walls and glass splashback 
  • Dulux Raku feature wall
  • Hardwood timber floors
  • Feature glass pendant lights

New Home Colour Consultation

Nothing beats the classic and sophisticated style of mixing hardwood timber with black, white and a Carrara marble look stone. I complete lots of colour selections, but I am just a little bit excited about this one. The clients have decided to mix it up with a combination of black and timber cabinetry, marble look stone bench tops and some hexagon and herringbone tiles throughout the two story property.

Creative Kitchen Design in a Small Space

A client has given us a small space of 5m x 2.4m to plan a kitchen and dining space. Whilst planning these rooms we needed to consider the rear door of the property along with the lounge room which is adjacent to the space. Good design is all about creating a functional yet stylish space that meets the clients day to day needs. We are really happy with the final plans and 3D vision for this room and hope that our clients are too! What do you think?

A new laundry

Well is seems that it is not Easter weekend at my house unless we are working on some part of our house. And this year is no different, it appears that some termites have raised their ugly heads within our laundry. The up side of this is that I get a new laundry, so I have been busy drawing up some floor plans and elevations! The down side is that I wish it was my ensuite:)

Planning a new kitchen?

It takes more than just a good colour palette to achieve a fantastic space.  The little details do count when planning a new build or renovation.  This kitchen has clean lines, crisp edges and striking neutral tones, along with streamlined square edge cabinets to create a continuous line which is almost seamless. This sharp, stylish look also incorporates appliances with angular edges, continuity with the stone bench top also being utilised as the splashback and curved accents, such as the round pendent lights and bar stools.  Remember, it is important to use a variety of shapes within a space as it adds interest.

These features create a warm, inviting, yet opulent space with uninterrupted rhythm carrying your eyes around the room.

Get the look of this kitchen with: * Bench tops, London Grey from Caesarstone * Cabinets, Vega Feel from Wilson Art * Bar Stools, Hinkley Swivel available through Lee & Allan Design * Pendant Lighting from Beacon * Alfa Exact Under Mount Sink & * Axon Kitchen Tap from Reece
