“The inspiration for the design and colour scheme is the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 1800s to early 1900s, when the house was built. It’s all about traditional craftsmanship and romantic decoration, with pale greens featuring heavily. We’ve recreated that craftsmanship that is seldom seen these days with features such as the decorative mouldings, curved edges, Shaker-style cabinets and tongue and groove panels. Other authentic elements include the traditional handles, butler-style sink and celadon tiled splashback. Behind the older-style façade, however, is a very functional, modern kitchen, which makes the most of limited space. It was important to the client to have designated areas for two people to work in comfortably as well as an open-plan style to connect to the living and dining area and a combination of mood and task lighting. Every cabinet was designed with a specific purpose in mind and every nook and cranny is useable storage thanks to good use of internal hardware such as pull-out shelving, bi-fold doors and lift-up doors. There’s even a U-shaped drawer under the sink that wraps around the plumbing.”
