Silestone® Brand Ambassador Neale Whitaker invites us into his contemporary country kitchen

Interior design expert Neale Whitaker is a much-loved household name, known and admired for his impeccable style and discerning eye for detail. Of course, that holds true in his own kitchen in a 1930s country property that Neale and his partner David have renovated on the NSW South Coast. “We wanted a contemporary, functional kitchen that was also sympathetic to the style, age and location of the house,” Neale says.

The kitchen is very much the heart of Neale and David’s home, where they cook, eat and enjoy conversation. Long familiar with Silestone® by Cosentino, both from personal experience and through his roles on The Block and Love It or List It Australia, Neale selected Silestone® Calacatta Gold for the benchtops, its soft grey veining and subtle gold flecks emulating real marble without the worries.


“Silestone® Calacatta Gold works seamlessly with our interior style.”

Teaming Silestone® Calacatta Gold with pale-grey cabinetry, off-white splashbacks and antique brass tapware, Neale and David’s kitchen is timeless in style and colour. The neutral palette complements their “modern rustic” aesthetic, and the classic touches nod to the heritage of the house.
