A NEW KITCHEN FOR CHRISTMAS

Ours isn’t the only Christmas wish list we have been working on recently . . .

We have been busy designing and executing a fabulous new kitchen project, including entrance hall, custom joinery and downstairs flooring – all to be wrapped up in time for Christmas!

Our lovely clients moved into their modern inner-eastern Sydney apartment a couple of years ago and felt it was time to inject a bit more of their personality, so we set about creating a new space that better reflected their individual style and needs.

Our clients requested a luxurious, warm and light-filled space, with plenty of functional storage, bench space and high quality finishes.

There are many favourite elements used in the design including Tasmanian oak timber flooring and the calacatta marble bench top, but the hero of the project for both us and the clients are the fabulous terracotta fish scale tiles from Academy Tiles.

You may have noticed that we have used these hand-made Australian clay tiles previously and it always brings a big smile to our (and our clients) faces when we get to use them!

We just know our clients are going to love cooking their Christmas dinner in their brand new kitchen.

Here is the project unfolding in all its glory . . .
