Colours and materials

A monochrome colour palette is always a failsafe move in a kitchen, but here it works with splendid results. Visually grounding the space, the black island bench works perfectly with other materials in the space. The metal surface on the wall reflects light onto the glossy Essastone benchtops and polished concrete flooring. Tolix stools at the bench create a casual dining zone.

The incredible Oakwood Restorations pressed metal splashback sets the tone for the room – a contemporary kitchen with hits of industrial style. Vibrant pops of orange and citrus work to brighten the room and add warmth.

The servery is an enviable touch, providing a practical element as well as introducing the outdoors in. The natural timber frame warms the metallic and monochrome colour palette inside.
