Stepping into Tanya and Vito’s modern Mid-Century inspired kitchen, the couple’s love of the 1950s, colour and personality is immediately evident. The space has been designed to appeal to a variety of homeowners, with a common theme of those who love to entertain and cook. “Our kitchen is perfect for those who love to entertain, says Tanya. It would be amazing for a family or empty nesters who want to host dinner for family and friends.”
An all-white colour palette features throughout the kitchen, with sleek Ballina Essendon White Satin cabinetry concealing several appliances and allowing the Bosch appliances to stand out on display along the back wall. The 3.5-metre long island bench has been topped with Terrazzo sourced by the couple, inspired by childhood memories. The countertop has been extended, allowing an overhang for generous seating. The front panel features Kinsman’s Avalon Classic White Matt, its decorative vertical-fluted profile adding texture and depth.
If the kitchen is a study of minimalist restraint, the butler’s pantry is a celebration of curves and colour, and we love that you get a glimpse of it from the kitchen! The galley-style scullery mixes blush pink and timber thanks to new Ballina Rose’ All Day and Archie Prime Oak Woodmatt joinery. The Archie door profile offers an elegant arched detail with Broadline Glass, and Caesarstone® White Shimmer benchtops have been used throughout, featuring ultra-fine mirror chips to add lustre to the cool-white surface. The result is a knockout space that would be a joy to be in every day!
More than just good looks, the success of this kitchen lies in the focus on functionality, innovative storage and top-of-the-range cooking appliances. A Gaggenau fridge, Bosch appliances, Oliveri sinks and taps ensure this is an entertainers dream kitchen. At the same time, within the cabinetry, thoughtful inclusions such as Design Sides on Deep Drawers, Cutlery Trays, and Cross Wire Rails make organisation easy.
“The kitchen is where all the action happens, so the most important aspects of our kitchen were functionality, great storage and lots of bench space, explains Tanya. We wanted to create a kitchen that doesn’t just look good; it’s highly functional and practical too!”
