Contemporary Kitchen Roseville

Contemporary Heritage Fusion

This 1920’s Californian Bungalow located in Sydney’s leafy North Shore has beautiful original interior detailing including high ceilings however had become tired & dated. 

The owners design brief was to:

  • Create an elegant interior, with style which compliments the heritage of the home but is a modern comfortable relaxed living space for a busy family of four.
  • Design a practical contemporary kitchen & create a new butlers pantry “with flair”
  • Provide a breakfast nook for the teenagers, coffee machine & extra storage, which flows into the dining & living spaces.

The design showcases Super White Dolomite natural stone, black & white cabinetry, brass highlights & curved cabinetry.

The design solutions were the following:

  • The orientation of the island bench was turned 90 degrees to improve the kitchen outlook towards the outdoor deck.
  • The beautiful curved island bench welcomes you into the space and is repeated in the fireplace area.
  • The existing laundry was turned into a butlers pantry through a clever hidden door in the kitchen cabinetry.
  • The hidden door provides a new source of natural light through to the living space.
  • The butlers pantry has a stunning Carrara marble hexagon splashback.
  • Brass highlights were achieved throughout by using stunning Armac Martin brass handles, Brodware tapware & brass mesh inserts.
  • The cabinetry was consistent throughout with a slimlined shaker door style visually connecting all the spaces.
  • Consistent paint finish – Dulux Vivid White & Domino – timber veneer finish.
  • To open up the space the large fireplace box was removed and replaced with the compact Escea freestanding gas fireplace.
  • Dulux Domino VJ grooving was installed behind the new fireplace to create warmth and disguise the tv.

The cabinetry style continues downstairs in the newly created European style laundry.
