We were tickled pink to spy our Victoria Street project featured in both the 'Hot kitchens & cool bathrooms' section of Belle's current April 2018 issue.
The annual 'Kitchens & Bathrooms' special issue is dedicated to 'inspiring spaces decked out in luxury materials and sophisticated details' and showcases a stunning collection of Australia's most spectacular new designs by leading interior designers and studios. Needless to say, we are in very good company!
'This kitchen renovation was part of a complete redesign of a Victorian terrace. When we stripped back the layers, the original sandstone walls were a beautiful surprise. We wanted to complement this treasure and chose to leave it in its raw state and explored using textures and finishes to highlight it. Once a small closed-off room, we opened it up to engage with the adjoining family rooms allowing us to incorporate an eat-in kitchen for this young family. The cabinetry's dark timber base was selected to contrast with the sandstone's warm honey tones and the bronze mirror reflects the stone, adds light and lets the owners keep their eyes on the children in the adjoining rooms even while washing the dishes!'

'Many years and many renovations had masked the history of this home. When we stripped back the layers, an unexpected discovery was a 'secret' room that we reimagined into this guest ensuite. The room is subterranean so the introduction of natural sunlight was paramount. For consistency with the overall theme, we explored textures and finishes to highlight the original features so this home's bathrooms all followed the same palette and signature but with the addition of a unique finishing element to personalise each one.'
