Mitch and Mark have layered classic whites and greys to create a Contemporary Coastal kitchen that is a showpiece in their home. Texture and muted colour play a fundamental role in the design’s success, with the couple opting to use various door profiles throughout. Kinsman’s NEW Shaker-style profile Montauk doors in Classic White Matt have been paired with deeply fluted Sorrento cabinetry in Stone Grey Matt and Classic White Matt. The benchtops and splashbacks come in matching Caesarstone® Calcatta Maximus, a new colour to the range which encapsulates the revival of prominent Calacatta veining, revealing oversized, delicate grey & copper veining on a pure white base.
Never ones to shy away from making a design statement, Mitch and Mark have created a focal island bench that is sure to draw the eye. The 4-metre long island bench is the longest of all the houses and features a Brass ‘M’ inlay, meaning that the duo have literally left their mark on this space! The pop of brass ties in beautifully with Barrington Eclipse Plain Brass Matt handles and brings in the touch of luxe that can be found throughout their entire home.
“While it’s important for a kitchen to be beautiful, it also has to be balanced with the rest of the home, explains Mitch. The kitchen needs to be a designer piece of furniture that complements the home’s overall style.”
A butler’s pantry sits behind the kitchen and evokes a Coastal feel while using a slightly different organic colour scheme. Featuring Sorrento Classic Matt White and Montauk Prime Oak Woodmatt doors, the prep zone has been topped with Caesarstone® Aterra Blanca, which also runs up the walls creating the splashback. While compact, the pantry is the ultimate multitasker when entertaining, thanks to the inclusion of an extra sink and tap, cooktop and oven.
“The kitchen is designed to appeal to a family, but also a serious home chef. The range of appliances will meet the needs of the serious home cook, says Mitch. Having the cube of appliances in the kitchen is so good for the gourmet cook.” Indeed the cube of four NEFF appliances, as well as a cooktop, dishwasher and integrated Gaggenau fridge, will ensure that you have everything you need to create amazing dishes for friends and family.
