Our clients have a love of a delicate style called French Provincial. We were engaged to design their kitchen which was to be situated within a new extension wing off their existing home. We wanted to locate the kitchen within the middle of the space so that it would provide an informal and formal lounge and dining area on either side.
The building design lent itself to a big open space with a high-pitched ceiling and natural light flooding in from all aspects. We were also involved in the detailed process of designing each of hand crafted timber windows and doors. Each of which pay homage to the formality of the interior.
The kitchen’s layout afforded itself to a gallery style design which allows the owners to access the space from every vantage point. The kitchen functions as an entertainer’s kitchen with adequate storage and preparation space. The island which spans 4.5 metres centres this entire wing of the home.
We wanted to refine our selections by using only a crisp white for the cabinetry keeping it light and expansive. Finer details like the shaker profile doors and beautifully designed handles and knobs adorning each cupboard and drawer front help layer the kitchen with elegant sophistication. The simplicity of the white allows for the striking benchtop and splashback to draw the necessary attention needed in a kitchen this size.
Overall this new design could easily see itself transported into a French villa, all we need now is that glass of wine.
