Purely French: Ocean view kitchen

Purely French: Ocean view kitchen
Universal Magazines

Gorgeous sandstone walls and timber accents contrast well with the aqua blue cabinetry to add to this kitchen’s French Provincial charm





“A rustic European design with a splash of French Blue, this kitchen was built around three features custom-made from sandstone: the kitchen mantel, fireplace and existing stone sink with wall plaque. The sandstone used on the internal and external walls matches the mantel, floor and overall palette. The chef-d’oeuvre island bench in clear-lacquered blackwood complements the dining table, exposed beams and the kitchen behind, and is a notable centrepiece with pronounced decorative elements. The feature floor complements the exposed beams on the ceiling and balances the room. This space captures and reflects the stunning ocean views outside, while still working harmoniously with the composition and decor of the house as a whole.”

Designer: Haris Bahtiyarov of Alby Turner & Son
