“I love everything,” says Kristy of the striking kitchen, which features a natural oak island by Farmers Doors topped in Carrara Gris quartz by Smartstone.
Sticking with a predominantly white palette tempered with oak, the cabinetry was colour-matched to walls in Dulux Natural White and accented with brushed brass door hardware from Passio Interiors, while a brushed gold Zip HydroTap from Harvey Norman adds an element of luxury.
Minimalist benchtop accessories including an ‘Isabella’ fruit bowl from Isabel World as well as House of Isabella bar stools and pendant lights from Uniqwa introduce a relaxed coastal feel. For added interest, Kristy and Mark chose Statuario Dior quartz by Smartstone for the splashback. Its delicate grey veining picks up tones in the soft furnishings and wallpaper in the dining nook, which is furnished with a vintage timber table (Ikea’s ‘Ingatorp’ table is an option) and Provincial Home Living ‘Lawson’ stools. Rather than timber or tiles on the floor, matt white polished concrete speckled with aggregate is the foundation for the open-plan space. “I love the look and feel and it’s incredibly low-maintenance,” says Kristy. "We didn’t compromise on the finishes and chose quality fixtures which will stand the test of time.”
