welcome to april

it’s hard to deny your kitchen matters like mad. What it looks like is right up there and how it functions is just as fundamental. For me the whole kit and kaboodle is critical! Now, I am part of a ‘book club’. Yes, we read and discuss books. But it’s more enticing, exciting and gossipy for us to stay connected and catch up than aspire to be a group of literatis! We are together because our kids went to the same primary school and they are all now in their 20s. So we’ve been at it awhile to experience all manner of life’s ups and downs on those nights. I have mentioned these gals before and they all live in wonderful homes – big, sprawling, gorgeous. My place on the…

much more than just the place you prepare a meal, your kitchen is where all the action is. It’s where you gather as a family, entertain friends and oversee homework. Consider how you live before embarking on your renovation, then let these amazing ideas inspire your new kitchen. reign of gold Treat your island to a luxurious waterfall bench in stone or quartz equivalent. Choose a slab with deep grey veins sweeping across a pale grey ground to ensure harmony between the bench, misty subway tiles and smoky cabinetry. Polished brass has been a go-to staple of kitchen renovators in recent years. More often than not, it has been relegated to accent duty – tapware, lighting… But now’s the time to fully commit and clad your island with luxe brass metal sheeting. Be inspired…

naturally timber

RUSTIC: TREND WATCH 2019 Rustle up a kitchen that is as tough as nails yet oozes charm. No plasterboard walls or fancy finishes here. The idea is to reference the past, sourcing aged, used and recycled timbers or materials, which will only get better with age – much like a fine wine. Consider white your blank canvas for a farmhouse-style kitchen. While the inclusion of recycled timber elements is a given, so too are charming vintage lights and white subway tiles that soar to the ceiling. Stacked one above the other, rustic timber shelves will imbue your kitchen with rural charm. Allow 300mm between shelves for storage. Make the heart of your kitchen an island clad with robust reclaimed timber. Reinforce its raw farm-esque aesthetic with a concrete floor and a corrugated metal ceiling…

vibing scandi

Incorporate designled, quick-to-access cubbies. Located under the benchtop and nestled between deep drawers, a slimline version of this idea is repeated across the back wall. Their white interior calls attention to this unique feature. You can stick to an easy-living, monochromatic scheme and still add interest and personality to your kitchen. Here, the two-colour, double-stacked horizontal wall cabinets, one deeper than the other, dazzle and offer extra storage. Maintain the sleek-lined appearance by fitting an extra-long, rectilinear, single-bowl undermount sink. As for the cooktop, go with an induction hob and choose an under-cabinet rangehood, which tends to be quite economical to buy. SCANDI: TREND WATCH 2019 The hallmarks of a Scandi kitchen are clean lines, light, muted colours (grey and white are ideal), wood (whether for cabinetry, the floor or as an accent) and…

blue by you

Bring inviting character to your cooking space with shaker-style units in a matt finish. Conceal your rangehood behind a boxy wood canopy to match the style of your main cabinetry. Carry your benchtop up the wall and behind the stove for a sleek, uniform appearance. You’ll be hard pressed to decide on the hero – the marble counter, the blue of the island or the shaker units. Rather than colour your whole kitchen blue, dip your toe in the water and paint just your island or peninsular. Another option is to leave the wall units white and paint the lower cabinets only. Large format easy-care floor tiles subscribe to the shaker ethos of minimal, understated style. Blue-grey tiles will take on a supporting role, enabling the kitchen’s key features to stand out.
