Guest Bedroom 3, Study & Cellar Week

Mitch and Mark opted for a sophisticated Hinged wardrobe design in their Third Guest Bedroom. Somersby Classic White Matt doors with Satin Brass Rounded Bar handles open up to Natural Oak Matt interiors. As with their other wardrobes, functionality and flexibility have been closely considered, as seen through the inclusion of a Flexstore Rack Pull Out, which allows easy storage of clothing while maximising the amount of space used within the wardrobe. Black Hanging Rails and a Folding Mirror elevate the look and usability of the area.

Key Features:

Exterior Doors: Somersby White Matt

Interior Finish: Natural Oak Matt

Handles: Matt Brass Plain Pull 34-M-20

Accessories: Häfele Black Hanging Rails, Häfele Folding Mirror, Häfele Flexstore Trouser Rack Pull Out

Recognising that so many of us are working or studying from home more often, Mitch and Mark have created a generous study within their home. Striking the perfect balance between style, productivity and comfort, the straight-line work area can sit two people with plenty of storage courtesy of drawers and cabinetry, perfect for the modern family. Grey Matt exterior doors and interiors from Kinsman’s NEW Cube Range evoke a chic and serene palette. Complementing the joinery is a desk panel in Grey Matt and shelving in Oak Woodgrain Matt, creating a workspace that would be a pleasure to work in.

With their love of entertaining and designing spaces that bring people together, this Wine Tasting Area was the perfect addition to Mitch and Mark’s Basement. A long benchtop in Portofino Stone 21mm Laminate sits atop cabinetry in Grey Matt from Kinsman’s new Cube collection. A plethora of storage has been created through several cupboards and generous drawers. A sink and tap add to the functionality of the room.

Laundry Week

Showcasing style, texture and organic tones, Mitch and Mark have created a laundry that stands out from the crowd. A crisp white and oak colour palette was chosen to match the pantry. “Our laundry was designed to complement the butler’s pantry, says Mitch. Really, to almost be an extension of the pantry.”

Deeply fluted Sorrento cabinetry in Classic White Matt adds texture, while Montauk Prime Oak Woodmatt joinery injects warmth and depth to the space. A mixture of Barrington Eclipse Plain Matt Brass and Touch Catch handles have been used throughout, with the brass handles adding a hint of glamour and the Touch Catch featuring on upper cupboards to maintain a sleek look.

Ample storage was paramount in the layout of House 2’s laundry. The design includes a broom cupboard with additional organisation available thanks to the inclusion of Hafele Tandem Sides. Next to this sits Bosch appliances and High Side Drawers underneath and cupboards above. A sink and tap, open shelving in Chadstone Prime Oak Woodmatt, and folding space thanks to Caesarstone® Aterra Blanca countertops complete the room to perfection.

“Whilst this is a room with serious functional requirements, we also wanted it to be beautiful, explains Mark. This is because it will be used as a thoroughfare to access the garage. And I think we achieved this.”

Kitchen Week

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.

Master Bedroom

Elegant and stylish, Mitch and Mark’s Walk-in wardrobe showcases several superb features. Shaker-profile Montauk doors in Stone Grey Matt have been paired with Natural Oak Matt interiors. Black Frame Glass Shelves provide the ideal space for styling accessories and decor items within the robe, and Kinsman’s new Brass Barrington Bar handles add the perfect touch of glamour that the couple is known for.

“The robe and dresser in the master bedroom are designed to appeal to someone who has design style and a hardcore fashionista to allow for storing everything from ballgowns to hats and shoes”, says Mitch.

Not just offering good looks, this Walk-in offers storage and accessories in spades with the inclusion of Black Light Bars, a Folding Mirror in Anthracite, Flexstore Trouser Rack Pull-out, and Shoe Rack Pull-out. “We designed the robe to appeal to a broad market and a wide age range- therefore the storage solutions need to be flexible”, explains Mark. We picked accessories such as the Trouser Racks and wider drawers as they make access easy and increase storage capacity.”

The addition of a credenza within the bedroom itself, with matching Montauk Stone Grey Matt doors with internal drawers, increases the already generous storage within the main wardrobe. Topped with Caesarstone® Aterra Blanca, a misty and earthy marble-inspired quartz surface, the credenza also offers another styling point within the Master Bedroom.

Guest Bedroom 1

Never ones to shy away from making a design statement, Mitch and Mark selected a new feature colour from the Kinsman wardrobe range, “Rosé All Day” for their guest wardrobe. The soft blush pink is a unique addition to the collection, adding an on-trend pop of colour to the natural palette of the rest of the robe, allowing the bedroom to feel fresh and light.

Thoughtful storage solutions have been included in the design thanks to a mixture of hanging space, drawers, open shelving and accessories such as a Häfele Flexstore Trouser Rack Pull-out. The matte black finish of the accessories and hardware pops against the softer tones of Natural Oak Matt interior finishes, and Oak Timber Rounded Bar handles. Premium LED Verti-Strip lighting featured on each side of the robe activates when the cabinetry doors are opened, highlighting the interior with a warm glow.

To the left of the robe, a small study nook increases the functionality of the design. Kinsman’s premium laminate Natural Halifax Oak tops the desk, which mimics the look and feel of timber while tying in beautifully with the rest of the Elegant Coastal palette.
