HOUSE 5: Jesse & Mel – Contemporary Classic
Jesse and Mel have created a contemporary yet timeless kitchen that features their signature dark, opulent and rich colour palette, complementing the rest of their home. Boasting a plethora of storage, high-end appliances, accessories, and distinct design features, this is a kitchen that celebrates both style and function. Darren was smiling as he entered the kitchen saying that this is his ‘kind of room’ and declared, ‘This is a success!’
The couple’s use of various tones and textures inject interest and personality into this space. Warmth has been created through the use of the Perugian Walnut Woodmatt cabinetry which features a subtle woodgrain embossing paired with Brushed Orb handles- both of which are new to the Kinsman Kitchens range. Darren loved the use of different timber looks saying, “This is how you mix timber types”.
To add to the layered design look, the couple has used two stunning Caesarstone colours throughout the kitchen. Statuario Maximus, with its classic marble-look design of soft whites and greys, has been used across both the island and back benchtops. Caesarstone Cloudburst Concrete has then been used across the splashback and wrapped over the rangehood adding an unexpected and visually stunning effect. Mirror kickboards have been used throughout, evoking a floating look.
The pair have paid just as much attention to the internal accessories and attention to detail. Bosch appliances have been either semi or fully integrated with the cabinetry to create a sleek and seamless look or have been arranged in a bank for ease of use. Not only is there plenty of storage but it works hard in this kitchen, making it a home cook and entertainer’s dream. Spice trays, cutlery dividers, internal drawers within tall pantry units, glass design side drawers- you will find these all here in this room.
