“Traditional French flavour lives harmoniously with modern convenience to inspire a love of cooking and entertaining in this kitchen. True to French Provincial style, the mantle forms the heart of the space. Its spacious interior and put-down area on either side give the owner ample room to prepare and cook ingredients with minimal movement. The intricate capping and moulding is both elegant and understated, and the symmetry of wall cabinetry provides visual harmony. On the opposite side, a benchtop in Smartstone Botticino provides space for buffet entertaining on a grand scale while, around the corner, the breakfast bar allows the cook to enjoy a casual drink with guests. As with any French Provincial kitchen, the beauty is in the detail, which is represented in the clean, classic white tiles behind the cooktop through to the focused task lighting that makes preparation and cooking a breeze. Behind its traditional looks, the kitchen incorporates the most modern appliances and hardware such as Hettich pull-out drawers, soft-close fittings and extensions.”
