Real kitchen: French appeal



A light and open kitchen, with a touch of period style and vintage glamour

“This French Provincial home is set on acreage with beautiful cottage gardens seen from the kitchen through to the hutch. The design maintains strong and bold features, such as the corbels and flutes, but is not overly ornamental. As the kitchen adjoins a living area and family room, the design needed to be aesthetically pleasing, practical, and complement the home.

Integrated appliances sit within carefully hand-painted and custom-built cabinetry, while wet and dry pantries at the back are well lit with plenty of storage. The island is an ornate showpiece yet houses a dishwasher, trays and sauce drawers, and the custom-made island benchtop in American oak was specially stained to match the grain and colour of timber throughout the home. It’s a fine line between kitchen and furniture and my aim was for the practicality to be forgotten because of the beauty.”
Designer: Karen Fullwood for Dana Kitchens Australia
