A striking palette of black, grey and timber defines this contemporary kitchen in a Thomas Archer Homes property, styled by Aimee Tarulli and photographed by Nikole Ramsay, where the hero of the piece is a gorgeous island bench and breakfast bar framed in American Oak and topped in Caesarstone in Raven.
A window splashback admits a flood of natural light that highlights the rear bench in Caesarstone Organic White, the perfect foil to the expanse of black subways, found at Beaumont Tiles. A Gessi gooseneck kitchen mixer from E&S has sculptural good looks, while the Zip HydroTap Elite, also from E&S Trading, conveniently delivers chilled and boiling water instantly.
The fully integrated fridge is hidden behind the gorgeous American Oak cabinetry and makes the kitchen feel super sleek. A Miele 88.8 gas cooktop from E&S virtually disappears against the dark splashback, while the KitchenAid stand mixer in Frosted Azure Blue introduces a pop of colour.
A frame of American Oak frame highlights the cookzone, comprising a Miele pyrolytic oven and Miele steam oven, both from E&S. The slick design also helps to break up the length of grey delivered by the V groove-fronted base cabinets in Dulux Western Myall 2-pac.
Similar tones in the dining room make for an easy transition to another space.
