After a trying year where our normal has been flipped on its head, I think we can all use a bit (or a lot!) of luxury in our home. And what better spaces to refurbish than the kitchen and bathroom? In our annual edition of Luxury Kitchens & Bathrooms, we hope you uncover your style and new ways to transform your house into a sanctuary. For some, luxury will mean splurging on a decadent marble benchtop and latest appliances, while for others it may be a luxurious golden bathtub.

a world of colour

“White kitchens will always be in vogue. White kitchens are simple, practical and generally easy on the eye”— Cathi Colla Colours can speak louder than words. Enter a room swathed in dark, majestic cabinetry with dark-toned walls to match and a sense of moodiness will imbue the space. Alternatively, a kitchen with white walls bathed in natural light will invite you in and tempt you to spend long afternoons indulging in the bright glow of the sun. Colour can change your kitchen. A simple brushstroke has the power to transform your space and alter the mood and energy of the room. “Paint is a useful tool to use if you want flexibility in your kitchen when it comes to colour choices over time,” says Alex Roth of Roth Architecture. “Rather than stone…

best of both worlds

Mid-century modern designs have skyrocketed in popularity and there is an abundance of furniture to outfit your space in this gorgeous style. Growing out of 20th-century Modernism, mid-century modern strengthened in the design world after WWII.

Honing in on the bathroom, we’ve scouted out some furniture that can infuse your space with an old-world elegance that hovers at the cusp of the future.…
